The Jam – Boy About Town lyrics
See me walking around - I'm the boy about town that you've heard of
See me walking the streets - I'm on top of the world that you've heard of
Oh, like paper caught in the wind
I glide up the street - I glide down the street
Oh, it won't let you go
Till you finally come to rest
And someone picks you up
Up street - Down street
And puts you in the bin
Oh, I'm sitting watching rainbows (sick)
I'm sitting here watching the people go crazy
Oh please leave me aside
I want to do what I want to do and
I want to live how I want to live and
Up street - Down street
Like paper caught in wind
Up street - Down street
It won't let you go
