Simon & Garfunkel - The boxer



I am just a poor boy

Though my story is 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 Mm mm....

When I left my home and my family

I was no more than a boy

In the company of strangers,

In the quiet of a railway station

Running scared, laying low,

Seeking out the poorer quarters

Where the ragged people go

Looking for the places only they would know


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

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, going home

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 am leaving, I am leaving

But the fighter still remains
