作曲Paul Simon
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 jests
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 fire poorer quarters
Where the ragged people go
Looking for the places only they would know
(Lie 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
(Lie la lie...)

Then I'm laying out my winter domes
And wishing I was gone, going home
Where the New York City winters aren't bleeding me
Bleeding me, going home
(Lie la lie...)

In the clearing stands a boxer
And a fighter by his trade
And be 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
(Lie la lie...)
