Boy About Town
The Jam Lyrics


See me walking around I'm the boy about town that you heard of
See me walking the streets I'm on top of the world that you heard of
Oh like paper caught in wind
I glide upstreet, I glide downstreet

Oh and it won't let you go
Till you finally come to rest or someone picks you up
Upstreet downstreet and puts you in the bin
See me walking around I'm the boy about town that you heard of
See me walking the streets I'm on top of the world that you heard
Oh I'm sitting watching rainbows
And watching the people go crazy
Oh please leave me aside

I want to be a, I want to be,
I want to live in,
Upstreet downstreet like paper caught in wind
Upstreet downstreet it won't let you go

Na na na nah, na na na nah
Na na na na na na nah
Na na na nah, na na na nah
There's more than you can hope for in this world

Saw this on The Bier Hooligans reviews. What a cracking tune, surprised I've not heard this before.

Harvey Gillibrand

Such a great song, the Jam are criminally underrated

BoxMeister

A tune that never gets old especially that 'La la la Haaa.' Absolute perfection.

LuziferDiabolus

This is exactly how a song has to start. Incredible song...

Steve McKenzie

There's more than you can hope for in this world...

L. Salisbury

At #72 this was the Jam's highest charting American album!

Sean Plows

At the risk of being pilloried as a heathen, I first saw the Jam in Coventry in Nov '78 as a 14 year old, been a fan ever since and particularly of PW, but I think the acoustic version on the Other Aspects live album is better...

Buster the Boxer

Great song, great days when we had some streets and shops to walk around. Not empty high streets, charity shops, nail bars, fast food and hairdressers.
Multi nationals force feeding us rubbish. It's a shame.

paul phillips

the boys at there best

T-34

another simple masterpiece from the paul weller song-writing stable. I am simply gob-smacked by the great songs this band came out with all those years ago and I thought I'd heard all that the jam had to offer. the punks hated them cos they loved Britain and didnt see the point in destroying it all.
