Simon & Garfunkel

"The Boxer"

[Verse 1]
I am just a poor boy, though my story's seldom told
I have squandered my resistance for a pocketful of mumbles, such are promises
All lies and jest, still a man hears what he wants to hear
And disregards the rest, hmmmm


[Verse 2]
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
, runnin' scared, laying low
Seeking out the poorer quarters, where the ragged people go
Looking for the places only they would know


[Hook]
Lie la lie, lie la lie la lie la lie
Lie la lie, lie la lie la lie la lie, la la lie la lie


[Verse 3]
Asking only workman's wages, I come lookin' for a job
But I get no offers

Just a come-on from the whores on 7th Avenue
I do declare, there were times when I was so lonesome
I took some comfort there, lalalalalalala

[Verse 4]
Now the years are rolling by me
They are rockin' evenly
I am older than I once was
And younger than I'll be; that's not unusual
Nor is it strange
After changes upon changes
We are more or less the same
After changes we are more or less the same
