Im tired joey boy
While youre out with the sheep
My life is so troubled
Now I cant go to sleep
I would walk myself out
But the streets are so dark
I shall wait till the morning
And walk in the park

This life is so simple when
One is at home
And Im never complaining
When theres work to be done
Oh Im tired joey boy of the makings of men
I would like to be cheerful again

Ambition will take you
And ride you too far and
Conservatism bring you to boredom once more
Sit down by the river
And watch the stream flow
Recall all the dreams
That you once used to know
The things youve forgotten
That took you away
To pastures not greener but meaner

Love of the simple is all that I need
Ive no time for schism or lovers of greed
Go up to the mountain, go up to the glen
When silence will touch you
And heartbreak will mend.
