For some reason I'm in a bit of a boxer/fighter mood lately. This happens to me sometimes.
(I know it's not the most feminine thing in the world, but it's fantastic for relieving stress. *Nods knowingly*)
Anyway, I have literally been singing the last verse of this song all day long. It's my favorite part of the whole song.
The Boxer is one of those songs that I only listen to sometimes, (though it comes on at my work pretty frequently) and it reminds me of...well, fighters mostly. Go figure.
And since I'm in that mood, I went through and found all my favorite fighters and put them to the song.
I don't usually do post that are this graphically intensive. I apologize in advance for how long this might take to load. *wink*
So, press play and scroll, okay?
I am just a poor boy
Though my story seldom told
I squandered my resistance
For a pocket full of mumbles such are promises
All lies and jests
Still a man hears
What he wants to hear
And disregards the rest
When I left my home and my family
I was no more than a boy
In the company of strangers
In the quiet of the railway stations running scared
Laying low seeking out the poor quarters
Where the ragged people go
Looking for the places
Only they would know
Asking only workman's wages
I come looking for a job
But I get no offers
Just a come on
From the girl on seventh avenue
I do declare there were times
When I was so lonesome
I took some comfort there
Then I'm laying down my winter clothes
And wishing I was home-- going home
Where the New York City winters
Aren't bleeding me, leading me going home
In the clearing stands a boxer
And a fighter by his trade
And he carries the reminder of every glove that laid him down
And cut him till he cried out in his anger and his shame
I am leaving I am leaving but the fighter still remains
I hope you guys enjoyed that. If not, I totally did, and since it's my blog, that's the important thing, right? *Grin*
Goodnight, and God Bless!
