The Boxer

Mood Music |

Paul Simon | "The Boxer" | Bridge Over Troubled Water |

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 jest,
Still a man hears what he wants to hear
And disregards the rest, hmmm


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 stills remains
