Beautiful Boy

 

Chorus

Back then, when the summers were long

Like they are when you’re young,

Under the sun

We lay on the bank with the radio on

The river was playing along

The river was having some fun.

Ooooo you’re a Beautiful Boy, you’re a beautiful boy

Ooooo you’re a Beautiful Boy, you’re a beautiful boy

 

I didn’t even know myself at all

Just wanted to experience falling in love.

Do you remember?

Do you ever remember?

 

Chorus/ Back then…

 

I saw you today in a crowded café

and twenty five years just melted away

Behind the lines on your face and the hair that turned grey

I see you the way you were that day.

Do you remember?

Do you ever remember?

Do you?

 

Ooooo you’re a Beautiful Boy, you’re a beautiful boy

 

Instrumental

 

Now a song is the only place for me and you

The river runs fast and the river runs true.

I’ll always remember that day by the river

I’ll always remember you.

 

Under the sun

We lay on the bank with the radio on

The river was playing along.

The river was having some fun.
