He was born on a summer day
Nineteen sixty-one
And with the slap of a hand
He had landed as an only son

Mother and father said, What a lovely boy
Well, teach him what we learned, oh yes, just what we learned
Well dress him up warmly and well send him to school
It'll teach him how to fight and be nobody's fool

Oh, oh what a lonely boy
Oh, what a lonely boy
Oh, what a lonely boy

In the summer of sixty-three
His mother brought him a sister
And she told him we must attend to her needs
She's so much younger that you

Well, he ran down the hall and he cried
Oh how could his parents have lied
When they said, he was the only son?
He thought, he was the only one

Oh, oh, what a lonely boy
Oh, what a lonely boy
Oh, what a lonely boy

He left home on a winter day
Nineteen seventy-nine
And he hoped to find all the love he had
Lost in that earlier time

Well, his sister grew up and she married a man
She gave him a son, oh yes, a lovely son
They dressed him up warmly, they sent him to school
It taught him how to fight and be nobody's fool

Oh, oh, what a lonely boy
