I am just a poor boy
Sunt doar un baiat sarac
Though my story's seldom told
Desi povestea mea-I adesea spusa
I have squandered my resistance
I have squandered my resistance
For a pocketful of mumbles
For a pocketful of mumbles
Such are promises
Astea sunt promisiunile
All lies and jest
All lies and jest
Still, a man hears what he wants to hear
Totusi un barbat aude ce ceea ce vrea
And disregards the rest
Si in ciuda celorlalti
Mm-mm-mm-mm-mm-mm
Mm-mm-mm-mm-mm-mm
Mm-mm-mm-mm-mm
Mm-mm-mm-mm-mm
When I left my home and my family
Cand mi-am parsit casa si familia
I was no more than a boy
Eram doat un baiat
In the company of strangers
Inconjurat de straini
In the quiet of the railway station
In the quiet of the railway station
Running scared
Alergand speriat
Laying low, seeking out the poorer quarters
Fara sa ies in evidenta, cautand coltul celor saraci
Where the ragged people go
Unde merg zdremtarosii
Looking for the places only they would know
Cautand locurile pe care le-ar cunoaste

Lie-la-lie-lie-lie-lie-lie, lie-lie-lie-lie-lie
Lie-la-lie-lie-lie-lie-lie, lie-lie-lie-lie-lie
Asking only workman's wages
Cerand doar salariu unui muncitor
I come looking for a job
Am venit cautand o slujba
But I get no offers
Dar n-am primit nici o oferta
Just a come-on from the whores on Seventh Avenue
Doar chem area cocotelor de pe Strada a 7-a
I do declare, there were times when I was so lonesome
Pot afirma ca au fost vremuri cand eram asa de singur
I took some comfort there
M-am bucurat un pic pe-acolo
La-la-la-la-la-la-la

Then I'm laying out my winter clothes
Apoi mi-am scos hainele de iarna
And wishing I was gone
Si sper and sa fiu plecat
Going home
Plecand acasa

Though my story's seldom toldSimon & Garfunkel

Where the New York City winters aren't bleeding me
Unde nu ma chinuie iernile din NY
Leading me
Condu-ma
Going home
Plecand acasa
In the clearing stands a boxer
In curatatorie sta un boxer
And a fighter by his trade
Si un luptator de meserie
And he carries the reminders
Si poarta amintirile
Of every glove that laid him down
Fiecarei lovituri care l-a doborat
Or cut him till he cried out
Or l-a secerat pana a urlat
In his anger and his shame
In furie si rusine
"I am leaving, I am leaving"
" Eu plec, eu plec"
But the fighter still remains
Dar luptatorul inca ramane
