The Jam – Boy About Town (Alternate Version) (Lyrics)

Boy About Town (Alternate Version)

(Paul Weller)

See me walking around –
I’m the boy about town that you’ve heard of.
See me walking the streets –
I’m on tope of the world that you’ve heard of.

Oh, like paper caught in wind
I glide up street – I glide down street
Oh, it won’t let you go
Till you finally come to rest
And someone picks you up
Up street – down street
And puts you in the bin.

Oh, I’m sitting watching rainbows (sick)
I’m sitting here watching the people go crazy
Oh please leave me aside
I want to do what I want to do and
I want to live how I want to live and
Up street – down street
like paper caught in wind
Up street – down street
It won’t let you go.
