Poor Boy
Split Enz Lyrics


My love is alien, I picked her up by chance
She speaks to me, with ultra-high frequencies
Radio band of gold
Gonna listen til I grow old
Oo hoo hoo

what more can a poor boy do? Oo hoo hoo
what more can a poor boy do? Oo hoo hoo hoo

The crackle of the radio
A message in the evening sky
You're looking at an interplanetary Romeo
I'll never see her face
between us there's too much space
Oo hoo hoo

what more can a poor boy do? Oo hoo hoo
what more can a poor boy do? Oo hoo hoo hoo... yeah?!

Keep losing you...Ooh hoo hoo

what more can a poor boy do? Ooh hoo hoo...
what more can a poor boy do? Ooh hoo hoo...
What more, what more...
What more, what more

What more can a poor boy do?

1980 is one of the most futuristic years in our history.
This band Split Enz & Mi-Sex and hundreds of others that were caught in the New Wave net had this cosmic and far out sound.
The late 70's and early 80's could be the pinnacle of Western culture.
Then Devo's De-Evolution started to become evidentiary.


The music today is very ordinary and sometimes horrible and diisgusting and that is the so called Rock bands, they are trying too hard instead of being organic, real and sincere.


In the late 70's and early 80's I was out at venues seeing as many Bands as I could, 5/6 nights a week. Spent way too much money enjoying my youth..
I saw Mi-Sex many times, yet the gig that stands out in my mind is one at The Govenor's Pleasure which was in Dickson St The Rocks, Sydney.
I can tell you that they are not forgotten, obscure or unknown in a lot of people's minds and hearts.
They are much loved.
One of New Zealand's finest.
Great front man in Steve Gilpin. RIP mate

This is still one of my favourite songs of all time. 40 years on, that’s saying something...

Mike Tayon

Same here

Bushy's Barefoot Bar

The memories of what this song meant to me still wells me with tears.

150 per cent

common sense

I always adored Split Enz and cannot understand why more people don't; they were way ahead of their time. I see their style in so many other bands now. Even Eddie Vedder fell in love with their song "Take a walk Again". Anyway they will always remind me of my youth where I did not fit in but still felt cool lol.

A very underrated band. The songs are genius
