The catch the crux and the rub
Boys
I never got home
Boys
So I'm howling all night with the cats
Boys
In Ye-ru-sha-lay-im
Boys
I kept my fingers crossed and my stomach in knots
Boys
Doing whatever the hell I want
Boys
Always pissed off but never been caught
Boys
In Ye-ru-sha-lay-im
Boys
I met you running away from home
Boys
You were just loving it all
Boys
Keep on running until you get
Boys
To Ye-ru-sha-lay-im
Boys
I been fettered and I been free
Boys
I been fed up with what's expected of me
Boys
That's my damn own fault now innit
Boys
Now Ye-ru-sha-lay-im
Boys
Irresponsible divine
Never saving a dime
Feast or famine that's just fine
Hell everything will be fine
Idealist divine
You're a terrible liar
This is a trickster's world
Trickster makes this world
Ye-ru-sha-lay-im
Boys

    General CommentUm, in these lyrics, I think they spelled Jerusalem in it's Hebrew format.

    Basically, the song is about someone who runs away from home and starts a nomadic life, similar to the content of Ladies and Gentlemen of the Road. He's fed up with what his parents and others expected of him and he's going to live in his own standards. He's living like a stray cat, experiencing the best and worst life can bring.
