Silly Boy

Composer: Utopia
Duration: 2:23
In the days when I was young I never had to cry
If I wanted a lover I did not have to try
But I must have set my expectations far too high
Guess I'm just a silly boy
I guess I'm just a silly boy

There are some things about love that I don't understand
When you promise your heart you do the best you can
But no matter how I try behaving like a man
Seems I'm just a silly boy
I guess I'm just a silly boy

This is the last time I'll wait to stand in line
If you don't come see me I'm dropping the boom on you
'Cause when you lose me
Then everyone will see what a silly girl can do

Don't you tell me that it's over
Don't you make a sound
'Til I get to the river or someplace I can drown
'Cause I put my faith upon you and you let me down
Guess I'm just a silly boy
I guess I'm just a silly boy


Commentary
I haven't been able to spot a specific influence on this song, but it sounds a bit like the obligatory Ringo knock-off, perhaps strengthened by the point that the meter of "In the days when I was young" matches that of Yellow Submarine's "In the town where I was born."
