Elvis Presley - My boy
Tekst en muziek: Jean-Pierre Bourtayre en Claude François / Vertaling: Bill Martin en Phil Coulter
(1975)






You’re sleeping son, I know
But really, this can’t wait
I wanted to explain
Before it gets too late
For your mother and me
Love has finally died
This is no happy home
But God knows how I’ve tried



Because you’re all I have, my boy
You are my life, my pride, my joy
And if I stay, I stay because of you
My boy



I know, it’s hard to understand
Why did we ever start
We’re more like strangers now
Each acting out a part
I have laughed, I have cried
I have lost every game
Taken all I can take
But I’ll stay here just the same



Because you’re all I have, my boy
You are my life, my pride, my joy
And if I stay, I stay because of you
My boy



Sleep on, you haven’t heard a word
Perhaps it’s just as well
Why spoil your little dreams
Why put you through the hell
Life is no fairytale
And one day you will know
But now you’re just a child
I’ll stay her and watch you grow



Because you’re all I have, my boy
You are my life, my pride, my joy
And if I stay, I stay because of you
My boy



Yeah, because you’re all I have, my boy
You are my life, my pride, my joy
And if I stay, I stay because of you
My boy



Yeah, because you’re all I have, my boy
You are my life, my pride, my joy
And if I stay, I stay because of you
My boy
