Poor Boy
Split Enz and the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra 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?

Wow <3<3
All sehends Hertz
Atem der Seele
Bittersüß,
fließender schmerz
Dein Funke trifft ,
Und spricht mich
Ins lyrisch' Angesicht
Wir lieben uns
Und schweben
In Wellen
Werden Wasser des Lebens

I cannot thank you enough! I wore out 3 cds of Enzso, it's fantastic to finally be able to see it here in the US.

The only band who makes me cry and smile at the same time. There is nothing quite so real as the touch of Split Enz.

Amazing version of Message to my girl. And incredible to hear Poor Boy and I hope I never sung with so much passion

Neil Finn can blardy sing alright, no doubt about it. And Mr Rayner is a musical blardy genius.

I've never been a big fan of Message To My Girl - but this version had me in tears, memories of times gone by almost 40 years ago (the song not this concert).

Murray Logan

I was at this concert. Cant believe it was 20 years ago.

With Dutch titles - I hope the Dutch people understand the lyrics. They're so beautiful.
