Andrew Gold - Lonely boy
Tekst en muziek: Andrew Gold
(1977)







He was born on a summer day, 1951
And with the slap of a hand
He had landed as an only son
His mother and father said: “What a lovely boy
We’ll teach him what we learned
Oh yes, just what we learned
We’ll dress him up warmly
And we’ll send him to school
It’ll teach him how to fight
To be nobody’s fool”



Oh, oh, what a lonely boy
Oh, what a lonely boy
Oh, what a lonely boy



In the summer of ’53
His mother brought him a sister
And she told him, we must attend to her needs
She’s so much younger than you
Well, he ran down the hall and he cried
Oh, how could his parents have lied
When they said, he was their only son
He thought, he was their only one



Oh, oh, what a lonely boy
Oh, what a lonely boy
Oh, what a lonely boy



He left home on a winter day, 1969
And he hoped to find all the love
He had lost in that earlier time
Well, his sister grew up and she married a man
He gave her a son, oh yes, a lovely son
They dressed him up warmly
They send him to school
It taught him how to fight, to be nobody’s fool



Oh, oh, what a lonely
Oh, what a lonely boy
Oh, what a lonely boy



Ohohoh, what a lonely
Oh, what a lonely boy
Oh, what a lonely boy
