Where was my boy tonight again?
Where was my boy tonight again?
My heart overflows.
I love him he knows that.
Where was my boy back then?

Did you stay in the city last night?
Or did you find a good evening flight?
From all the stupid folks stuck in your life.
Where was my boy last night?

Half of what you tell me cannot be true.
If most of it is, I didn’t follow through.
See, I promised your mom I’d look out for you.
Where was my boy hitherto?

Oh, by the reigns.
Half of us sane.
Oh, by the reigns.

Where was my boy tonight again?
Where was my boy tonight again?
My heart overflows.
I love him he knows that.
Where was my boy back then?

I was nine when you were ten
You would disappear with Marilyn
I would call and I call again.
Where was my boy back then?

Now, what do I tell your mother?
I haven’t seen you in weeks.
“I get him on the phone and he hardly speaks.”
He says, “Sweet little Donovan, you’re far too meek.”
What is this life he seeks?

Oh, by the reigns.
Half of us sane.
Oh, by the reigns.

Where was my boy tonight again?
Where was my boy tonight again?
My heart overflows.
I love him he knows that.
Where was my boy back then?
