LYRICS:

"Giving it all away"

I paid all my dues so
I picked up my shoes
got up and walked away
Oh! I was just a boy
I didn't know how to say?

Worked hard and failed
now all I can say
is I threw it all away
Oh! I was just a boy
giving it all away

Sail away, Sail away

Oooooooh! Well I know better now
I know better now
giving it all away

Oooooooh! Well I know better now
I know better now
giving it all away

Went out in this world
to much for my nerve
only myself to blame
Oh! I was just a boy
nobody else to blame

I've done all I can
now it's out of my hands
stand on my head and say

Oh! I was just a boy
giving it all away

Sail away, Sail away

Ooooooh! Well I know better now
I know better now
giving it all away...   (repeat this chorus several times and then)
....Just a boy, giving it all away
I was just a boy giving it all away
I was just a boy, giving it all away   ( I'm not too sure how many times these words
Just a boy giving it all away               are repeated???)
Just a boy!
