Lonely Boy Lyrics

He was born on a summer day
Nineteen fiftyone
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 up warmly
And we'll send him to school.
It'll teach him how to fight
To be nobody's fool

What a lonely boy
What a lonely boy
What a lonely boy

In the summer of fiftythree
His mother brought him a sister
And she told him we must atend to her needs
S.he's so much younge'r than you
He ran down the hall
And he cried

How could his parents have lied
When they said he was an only son.
He thought he was the only one

What a lonely boy
. . .

Goodbye Mama
Goodbye to you
Goodbye Papa
I'm pushin' on through

He left home on a winter day
Nineteen sixtynine
And he hoped to find all the love
He had lost in that earlier time
Well his sister grew up
And she married a man
He gave her a son
Yes a lovely son
They dressed him up warmly
They send him to school
It taught him how to fight
To be nobody's fool.

Oh what a lonely boy
. . .

What an ungrateful cow, so he was put second big deal get over it, move on, let go build a bridge and get over it. There is a remix where the son comes back and axes the parents for being evil

just a little boy who was sad he wasn't going to get all the attention anymore and he carried it through his life, very sad.
