Lonely Boy
Andrew Gold Lyrics


He was born on a summer day 1951
And with a slap of a hand
He landed as an only son
His mother and father said what a lovely boy
We'll teach him what we learned
Ah yes just what we learned
We'll dress him up warmly and
We'll send him to school
It'll teach him how to fight
To be nobody's fool

Oh, oh what a lonely boy
Oh what a lonely boy
Oh what a lonely boy

In the summer of '53 his mother
Brought him a sister
And she told him we must attend to her needs
She's so much younger than you
Well he ran down the hall and he cried
Oh how could his parents have lied
When they said he was an only son
He thought he was the only one

Oh, oh what a lonely boy
Oh what a lonely boy
Oh what a lonely boy

Goodbye mama, goodbye to you
Goodbye papa I'm pushing on through

He left home on a winter day 1969
And he hoped to find all the love
He had lost in that earlier time
Well his sister grew up
And she married a man
He gave her a son
Ah yes a lovely son
They dressed him up warmly
They sent him to school
It taught him how to fight
To be nobody's fool

Oh, oh what a lonely boy
Oh what a lonely boy
Oh what a lonely boy

Oh, oh, oh, oh what a lonely boy
Oh what a lonely boy
Oh what a lonely boy

We All wear Masks! Odds are, your Friends would each describe us differently! Of course Individuals Perceptions are different. However, we only Share what we wish to, to whoever that might be?

We wear Masks for different reasons. Perhaps we are ashamed of something? Something we did? Something we plan to do? Options are Plentiful!

Depending on how Open, a person is? We could ask someone if they are OK? Perhaps they're wearing a Mask to Cover up Pain? Physical or Emotional? Take your pick. That person may Lie? Say yes, I'm OK, I'm Fine? All the Time, they are Not!

How often do any of us ask a Friend, Family, or Work acquaintance if they are Happy? My guess, not often?

Life is funny! We strive to fit in! To be like someone else? Suppressing Who we really are!!!
Yet, many of us are afraid to be by ourselves? The Person each and every last one of us, will spend the most time with, ourselves!
Do Not be afraid, of Who you are! Embrace it!

Peace

Oh, oh, oh, oh what a lonely boy
Oh what a lonely boy

Remember how much we thought the 70s sucked and looking back just how great the 70s were, the music, the innocence, the parties just a great time compared to today it was heaven.

Andrew Gold was one of the great allrounder musicians, who can sing, write songs, and play different instruments on a high skill level.
His work should be more recognised, he should have deserved much more attention and higher commercial success because his projects are simply amazing.

George Red Hawk

He had some commercial success in Europe and England.
He had songs used for TV shows.
This song is as slick as the song Galveston. Where you can’t find the one, the first beat.
The drums sound like ska and it has the classical bit too.
I woke up this morning with this song going in my head so I found it on YouTube. I forgot how good it is.

JoAnn Mattaliano

His mother and father as well. Amazingly talented family.

Marilyn E. Jess

Can’t ever just listen to this just once. It slays me. The perfect ballad.
