Paul Simon – Oh, Marion lyrics

The boy's got brains
He just don't use 'em that's all
The boy's got brains
He just refuse to use 'em and that's all
He said "the more I got to thinkin
The less I tend to laugh"
The boy's got brains
He just abstains

The boy's got a heart
But it beats on the opposite side
It's a strange phenomenon
The laws of nature defied
He said "its a chance I had to take
So I shifted my heart for it's safety sake"
The boy's got a heart but it beats on
His opposite side

Oh, marion,
I think I'm in trouble here
I should have believed you
When I heard you saying it
The only time
That love is an easy game
Is when two other people
Are playing it

The boy's got a voice
But the voice is his natural disguise
Yes the boy's got a voice
But his words don't connect to his eyes
He says "oh, but when I sing
I can hear the truth auditioning".
The boy's got a voice
But the voice is natural
