IT’S YOUR OWN FACE
THAT FILLS UP YOUR EYE
ALWAYS YOURS
NEVER MINE
AND YOUR FOUL MOUTH
SPEAKS ONLY TO MY EAR
IT KNOWS EVERY
MOCKING WORD
AND EVERY SINGLE
JEER
IT’S YOURSELF
YOU NEVER PUT
UNDER THE NAKED BULB
NO I’LL NEVER BE
YOUR BOY
IT’S YOURSELF
YOU NEVER PUT
UNDER THE NAKED
NO I’LL NEVER BE
YOUR BOY

WHEN SAILORS SINK INTO THE PITCH
WOULD YOU OFFER THEM A STICK
IF THEY NEVER WAS YOUR BOY?
IF JUSTICE NEEDED TO BE QUICK
WOULD YOU BE THE PUGILIST
IF THEY NEVER WAS YOUR BOY?
LIKE A LITTLE MATCHSTICK SHIP
ON A STRING YOU NEVER GRIPPED
NOW I’LL NEVER BE YOUR BOY

IT’S YOUR OWN FACE
THAT FILLS UP YOUR EYE
ALWAYS YOURS
NEVER MINE
MY FACE IS PLOUGHED
BY GLASSY BEADS
FROM A CHEQUERED HISTORY
WHEN I NEVER WAS
YOUR BOY
IT’S YOURSELF
YOU NEVER PUT
UNDER THE NAKED BULB
NO I’LL NEVER BE
YOUR BOY-
