    i am just a poor boy.
    though my story's seldom told,
    i have squandered my resistance
    for a pocket full of mumbles, such are promises
    all lies and jest
    still a man hears what he wants to hear
    and disregards the rest.

    when i left my home
    and my family,
    i was no more than a boy
    in the company of strangers
    in the quiet of the railway station,
    running scared,
    laying low,
    seeking out the poorer quarters
    where the ragged people go
    looking for the places
    only they would know

    lie-la-lie,
    lie-la-lie la lie-la-lie lie-la-lie,
    lie-la-lie la la la la, lie la la la la lie.

    asking only workman's wages
    i come looking for a job,
    but i get no offers,
    just a come-on from the whores
    on seventh avenue
    i do declare,
    there were times when i was so lonesome
    i took some comfort there.

    ooo-la-la la-la la-la

    then i'm laying out my winter clothes
    and wishing i was gone,
    going home
    where the new york city winters
    aren't bleeding me,
    leading me - e,
    going home.

    in the clearing stands a boxer,
    and a fighter by his trade
    and he carries the reminders
    of ev'ry glove that laid him down
    or cut him till he cried out
    in his anger and his shame,
    "i am leaving, i am leaving."
    but the fighter still remains
    lie-la-lie,
  • joan baez yorumu ile dinleyeni ağlatan bir şarkıya dönüşmüş, aslen neşeli bir ritm ile yalnızlık dolu sözlere sahip eski bir paul-art çalışması.
    özellikle,
    still a man hears what he wants to hear
    and disregards the rest.
    kısmı ile hayat dersi gibidir.
  • jim sheridan'in yonettigi 1997 yapimi film.
  • bu muhteşem sözleri, hem depresif hem isyan eden; ve bu müziği, hem neşeli hem hüzünlü, ancak simon & garfunkel bir araya getirebilirdi.

    i am leaving i am leaving
    but the fighter still remains
  • lie la lie kısımlarıyla gelmiş geçmiş en melankolik şarkı olma unvanını sonuna kadar hakeden paul simon şarkısı
  • yanlış hatırlamıyorsam paul simon'un konuk olarak katıldığı bir joan baez konserinde "after changes and changes we're more or less the same" diye muhteşem bir dize eklediği ve yeniden yarattığı şarkı.
  • ozellikle;

    in the clearing stands a boxer
    and a fighter by his trade
    and he carries the reminders
    of every glove that laid him down or "cut him"
    till he cried out in his anger and his shame
    i'm leaving i'm leaving but the fighter still remains...
