"At age seventeen, despite spirited attempts to be a man of the world, I remained, in fact, a boy of the town."



Lyrics

Boy of the Town © Bruce Wozny 1992

You had imagination, she had a reputation
but your preoccupation only shot you down.
Your ego was so damn sure that you were much smarter than her
but she found out that you were
just a boy of the town.

Cruising in your Daddy's car, drinking in the hotel bar
wondering if you really are only playing the clown
Crazy as a flying squirrel, chasing all them tourist girls
thinking you're a man of the world
but you're a boy of the town.

Now you might be a man some day, but that seems so far away
'Cause now you just want to play when the sun goes down
But the moon is gonna break your heart
and the night is gonna tear it apart
leave you standing at the video mart
just a boy of the town

Cruising in your Daddy's car, drinking in the hotel bar
wondering if you really are only playing the clown
Crazy as a flying squirrel, chasing all them tourist girls
thinking you're a man of the world
but you're a boy of the town.

Yes, you want to be a man of the world
but you're just a boy of the town
