I am just a poor boy
Though my story's seldom told
I have squandered my resistance
For a pocket full of mumbles such are promises
All lies and jests
Still a man hears what he wants to hear
And disregards the rest
When I left my home and my family
I was no more than a boy
In the company of strangers
In the quiet of the railway station running scared
Laying low, seeking out the poorer quarters
Where the ragged people go
Looking for the places only they would know
Lie la lie ...
Asking only workman's wages
I come looking for a job
But I get no offers,
Just a come-on from the whores on Seventh Avenue
I do declare, there were times when I was so lonesome
I took some comfort there
Lie la lie ...
Then I'm laying out my winter clothes
And wishing I was gone
Where the New York City winters aren't bleeding me
Bleeding me, going home
In the clearing stands a boxer
And a fighter by his trade
And he carries the reminders
Of ev'ry glove that layed him down
Or cut him till he cried out
In his anger and his shame
"I am leaving, I am leaving"
But the fighter still remains

(I'm not a poor boy, btw, I'm a girl lol)
I love both versions of that song.
So it's okay guys, Stormy and Kayleigh still have 1st lunch. They just had a golf match yesterday.
Nothing really happened today.
I made those brownies for bio and everyone loved them. They were eaten in like, 12 seconds. It was great.
Umm...I can't really think of anything that stands out to me.
So me and this girl Aubrey were talking and her uncle knows my dad. They used to be best friends and her uncle gave Aubrey a picture of my dad to give to me.
He was like, 15, so it was ih the late 70's the picture was taken.
Him and my dad played a prank on his parents. Her uncle lived in this house with a a basement and there was a window in it that could open and close.
So they pretended my dad was skateboarding and fell into the window and got all scratched up. They put fake blood and everything on it.
It's real funny because my dad had long blonde hair like I do, only his is uber blonde. It's like Rapunzel, when he cut it, it got darker. Not it's dark dark dark brown, almost black (with some old gray hairs haha).
I thought that was cool. I can't wait till my dad gets home from work and I can show him. He'll think it's funny.
Hmm what else?
Today wasn't exciting I guess, I hope sometime this week we can go to the library and I can get Looking For Alaska.
In English our teacher wasn't here, so we watched Avatar (with the blue people). I really don't like that movie, but the graphics and special effects are amazing.
I think the Na'vi world looks like what the ocean would look like without water lol. What's it called, Pandora? I think it is.
I GOT AN 86% ON MY MATH EXAM FKHJKFH YAY!
