Oh, Marion

ŠPaul Simon, released on One Trick Pony, 1980

.

The boy's got brains

He just don't use 'em that's all

The boy's got brains

He just refuse to use 'em and that's all

He said "The more I got to thinkin

The less I tend to laugh"

The boy's got brains

He just abstains

.

The boy's got a heart

But it beats on the opposite side

It's a strange phenomenon

The laws of nature defied

He said "Its a chance I had to take

So I shifted my heart for its safety sake"

The boy's got a heart but it beats on

His opposite side

.

Oh, Marion,

I think I'm in trouble here

I should have believed you

When I heard you saying it

The only time

That love is an easy game

Is when two other people

Are playing it

.

The boy's got a voice

But the voice is his natural disguise

Yes the boy's got a voice

But his words don't connect to his eyes

He says "Oh, but when I sing

I can hear the truth auditioning".

The boy's got a voice

But the voice is natural
