The Boys Are Killing Me Lyrics

Yeah
Back in 1996 in northwest Australia
I wonder why you were lyin' on the street alone
Another accident inflicted on an innocent child
In the home, while I was on the see-saw
I was in the garden, readin' Papillon
Tellin' myself real people couldn't be so cruel

And she said, "Honey, what's wrong?"
I said, "Babe, what's right?"
So we staggered off into the night, oh
I'm lucky, I'm lucky, I'm lucky just to sleep at night, oh
So we linked arms and we staggered off into the night
Drunk, but overjoyed just to be employed

By the boys
The boys are killin' me
I'm just a sailor and a miner
I'm comin' as I am, comin' as I am
Even if you tell me I'm a liar
The boys are killin' me
I'm just a sailor and a miner
Mantajarra Walyakarra
Take a deep breath and hold your fire Gesticulating wildly and passionate at cars
Parked in the dark on the street, oh
I would've fallen in a hole
If you didn't have my shoulders tight
You're swaying like a see-saw
If that's what it is to trust another, then you got it all
But I don't know if I can trust my country anymore

She said, "Honey, what's wrong?"
I said, "Babe, what's right?"
So we staggered off into the night
Drunk, but overjoyed just to be employed

By the boys
The boys are killin' me
I'm just a sailor and a miner
I'm comin' as I am, comin' as I am
Even if you tell me I'm a liar
The boys are killin' me
I'm just a sailor and a miner
Mantajarra Walyakarra
Take a deep breath and hold your fire
