Tony Carey – Boystown lyrics

There's a loon calling on the lake tonight
Tv's goin', it's black and white
And I was the only one who ever knew you
Cold coffee on a hot plate
Nothin' to do but sit and wait
I lied when I said I didn't care about you

Where were you when the lights went out
You'll have plenty to talk about
In Boystown tonight
Where will you be when the big one comes
And all your money can't buy you none
In Boystown tonight
Goin' to boystown

I changed my mind, changed it back again
Stuck around through thick and thin
I swore I would never see your face again, baby
Every time's your last time
Every line your last line
One more, and you're off to the races again

Where were you when the lights went out
You'll have plenty to talk about
In Boystown tonight
Where will you be when the big one comes
And all your money can't buy you none
In Boystown tonight
Goin' to boystown

Sha-la-la-la-la-la...

I'm standing at a crossroads
I don't know which way to go
Should I head on down the road
And find a life
Waiting for the phone to ring
Some cop who's seen 'bout everything says
Mister come on down and get your wife
She's out like a light

And I know all about nights like this
I know all about chances missed
I know you even better than you do
Your taxi's here and your bag's all packed
You know they'll always take you back
You know there's always a place there for you
Over in Boystown
Over in Boystown
Goin' to Boystown

Sha-la-la-la-la-la...
