Paul Simon The Only Living Boy In New York Lyrics

Last updated: 04/14/2010 11:00:00 AM

Tom, get your plane ride on time
I know your part'll go fine
Fly down to Mexico
Don-da-darlin' oh don-da-darlin' here I am
The only living boy in New York

I get the news I need on the weather report
Oh, I can gather all the news I need on the weather report
Hey, I've got nothing to do today but smile
Don-da-darlin' oh don-da-darlin' here I am
The only living boy in New York

Half of the time we're gone but we don't know where
We don't know where
Here I am
Half of the time we're gone but we don't know where
We don't know where

Tom, get your plane ride on time
I know that you'll be able to fly now
Hey, let your honesty shine shine shine
Now don-da-darlin' don-da-darlin'
Like it shines on me
The only living boy in New York
The only living boy in New York

Here I am

wrong | Reviewer: yaggenhimen | 8/30/2008

Actually, S&G, you're wrong about Pink Floyd ripping off the harmony. It's similar but Pink's is more of a standard doo-wap style harmony, it's stock. The Simon & G-Funk harmony is better a bit more creative and much more powerfull. But yeah, different notes...

Either way, freakin great tune.

nice song | Reviewer: S&G | 9/17/2007

Pink Floyd ripped this song's harmony off in The Show Must Go On!

Anyways, both are great songs.
