    Lyrics

    He's always alone, wrapped up in his plight
    With his hands in his pockets he's walkin' in the night
    With his dark eyes lookin'; he's a poor boy
    His dark eyes lookin'; he's a poor boy

    He can't seem to keep any buttons on his clothes
    And the shoes on his feet are pinching on his toes
    And his hair wants a cuttin'; he's a poor boy
    His hair wants a cuttin'; he's a poor boy

    [Chorus:]
    Hey (now, now) poor boy
    What's it all about?
    Hey, poor boy
    Can you hear me when I shout?

    Well, he's workin' everyday, slavin' for his pay
    And all the pretty women - they love to swish and sway
    And they always overlook him; he's a poor boy
    They always overlook him; he's a poor boy

    Well, May turns into June, walking through the park
    And way off in his world he's a-dreamin' in the dark
    With his mind on fire; he's a poor boy
    His mind on fire; he's a poor boy

    [Chorus]

    Well, the streets are alive, every body laughs
    People come and go, and they're snappin' photographs
    And he's over by the river; he's a poor boy
    He's over by the river; he's a poor boy

    Well, spring has come and gone now
    And how much time you got?
    Time's a-flyin' by, yes, and summer's gettin' hot, and he's
    Listenin' to the thunder; he's a poor boy
    He's listenin' to the thunder; he's a poor boy

    [Chorus]
