  I am just a poor boy, though my story's   seldom   told
I have   squandered my resistance for a   pocketful of mumbles, such are   promises
All l  ies and j  est, still a m  an hears what he w  ants to hear and disregards the r  est
mmmm   mmmm mmmmmm,  mmm mm mm mmm  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 the railway station,   runnin' scared
  Laying   low, seeking   out the poorer   quarters, where the ragged people   go
Looking   for the places   only they would   know
Lie la   lie, lie la   la la lie la lie, lie la   lie
Lie la   la la lie la lie, la la la la   lie
Asking   only workman's wages, I come lookin'   for a   job
But I get no o  ffers, just a   come-on from the whores on Seventh   Avenue
  I do de  clare there were   times when I was   so lonesome I took some comfort   there
La la,   la la la la   la    
(Instrumental) :                 
Lie la   lie, lie la   la la lie la lie, lie la   lie
Lie la   la la lie la lie, la la la la   lie
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 meeeeee  , going ho  me            
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 'til he cried out
In his anger   and his   shame, "I am   leaving,
I am   leaving, but the fighter still   remains"
Mmmm   mmmm  m     
Lie la   lie, lie la   la la lie la lie, lie la   lie
Lie         lie   lie,            lie        (ad lib)
