Almost, The - Lonely Boy Lyrics




He was born on a summer day, 1991
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 all poorly and we'll send him to school
It'll teach him how to fight, he'll be nobody's fool

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

In the summer of '99 his mother brought him a sister
But she told him that we must attend to her needs
She's so much younger than you
Well, he ran out in the hall and he cried
Oh, how he was scared to die
When they said he was an only son
He thought he was the only one

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

Goodbye mother, goodbye youth
Goodbye father, I'm pushing on through

He left home on a winter day in 2009
And he hoped to find all the love he had lost in that earlier time
Well, his seek turned to love and she made him a man
She gave him a son, oh, yeah, a lovely son
They dressed him up poorly and they sent him to school
It taught him how to fight, nobody's fool

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

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

Oh, what a lonely boy

    Well, that's one way to cover this one. A lot like The Ataris, take it and rock it up. Well, not exactly like The Ataris at all, but you get the point.

    Andrew Gold (Thank You For Being a Friend) recorded and probably wrote this in the 70's.
