Billy Joe Royal--'Down In The Boondocks'

Down in the boondocks
Down in the boondocks
People put me down 'cause
That's the side of town I was born in
I love her she loves me but I don't fit in her society
Lord have mercy on the boy from down in the boondocks

 

Ev'ry night I watch the lights from the house up on the hill
I love a little girl who lives up there and I guess I always will
But I don't dare knock on her door
'Cause her daddy is my boss man
So I have to try to be content
Just to see her when ever I can
Down in the boondocks
Down in the boondocks
People put me down 'cause
That's the side of town I was born in
I love her she loves me but I don't fit in her society
Lord have mercy on the boy from down in the boondocks
Down in the boondocks
Down in the boondocks

 

One fine day I'll find the way to move from this old shack
I'll hold my head up like a king and I never never will look back
Until that morning I'll work and slave
And I'll save ev'ry dime
But tonight she'll have to steal away
To see me one more time

 

Down in the boondocks
Down in the boondocks
People put me down 'cause
That's the side of town I was born in
I love her she loves me but I don't fit in her society
Lord have mercy on the boy from down in the boondocks
Lord have mercy on the boy from down in the boondocks
Lord have mercy on the boy from down in the boondocks


 

NOT Billy Joe Royal--'Listen As Dump Mocks'

 

Listen as Dump mocks
Listen as Dump mocks
Putting others down, 'cause
that's the environment he was raised in
I hate him and he laughs at me, 'cause my I. Q' s above puberty
Lord give me strength, I feel shame when Dump mocks

 

Every day I watch T. V. as they kiss his ass
when he spouts hate shit--he's got nuts of brass
I switch the channel just to get away,
'cause the sight makes me dry-heave
but the bastard's everywhere

takin' 'bout grabbing him some beav

 

Listen as Dump mocks
Listen as Dump mocks

Putting people down 'cause
that's the environment he was raised in

Listen as Dump mocks
Listen as Dump mocks

 

One fine day, I'll find me a way
to block out the shit he has to say
I'm getting tired of covering my ears,

feels like being tortured on the rack
With frustration my eyes fill with tears
He's spouting bullshit in a personal attack

 

Listen as Dump mocks
Listen as Dump mocks

Putting people down 'cause
that's the environment he was raised in

Lord have mercy on me watching T. V. as the Dumper mocks

Lord have mercy on me watching T. V. as the Dumper mocks

Lord have mercy on me watching T. V. as the Dumper mocks
