lyrics

Poor Boy working hard
For more than peanut pay
But his time is dwindling
Like autumn days

Poor Boy thinking hard
Poor Boy been hard done
Where did those big dreams go?
Where do they run?
From where, oh where do they come?

Poor boy working hard
But the taxman takes his pay
He’s got a bone to pick
Anyway

For empty promises
You lose your rag
But you swim along with the tide
When you’re waving your blue flag

Poor Boy feeling scared
Of losing all he pined
A worried wife at home
A worried mind

Poor boy lost his job
God knows he needs a hand
Seems any foot could fall
In quick sand

For empty promises
You got no bag
But you swim along with the tide
Now you’re waving your red flag

A two-way conversation
Is now a one-way street
Opinion steam rolls us
Off our feet

For empty promises
You’ve lost your rag
But you swam along with the tide
Now you’re waving your white flag

Poor Boy thinking hard
Poor Boy been hard done
Where did those big dreams go?
Where do they run?
