GOODBYE TO BOSTON

I think it’s time I go
no they don’t need me here
there’s plenty of fresh faces coming every single year

this city is a light
but I am not a moth
no it’s time my precious cubic feet were auctioned off

I think it’s time I said goodbye to Boston
I think it’s time I said goodbye to Boston.

I’d seem the perfect type
I’ll be a student all my life
and I’ve got a car, a kind of car that
all the rich men like

but I’ve been sleeping fine
there’s nothing on my mind
and you know that’s how I realized
that it’s about that time.

I think it’s time I said goodbye to Boston
I think it’s time I said goodbye to Boston.

I’m not rich enough to chair the board
but I’m not poor enough to sweep the floors
though I’m ashamed to say I’ve used the servants’ door.

let the yuppies have their playground
let New England have its crown
let all the pretty families live just enough outside of town.

let the others keep their reasons
I won’t need ‘em where I’m going
at least now the trouble with this river won’t be the way I’m rowing.

I think it’s time I said goodbye to Boston
I think it’s time I said goodbye to Boston.
