Ένα διθύραμβος για την εφηβεία, ένα τραγούδι που η συγγένειά του με το ‘Heroes’ δεν το εμποδίζει να είναι αυτόνομο και εκπληκτικό.
Το “παρακμιακό” στοιχείο του βίντεο δεν προκύπτει ακριβώς από τους στίχους, αλλά είχε την πλάκα του πίσω στα 1979.
Το τραγούδι προέρχεται από το υποτιμημένο άλμπουμ της βερολινέζικης τριλογίας, Lodger.

A dithyramb for adolescence, a song that its affinity with ‘Heroes’ does not prevent it from being autonomous and amazing.
The “decadent” element in the video doesn’t exactly emerge from the lyrics, but it had its fun back in 1979.
The song comes from the underrated album of the Berlin trilogy, Lodger.

❝ Heaven loves ya
The clouds part for ya
Nothing stands in your way
When you’re a boy
Clothes always fit ya
Life is a pop of the cherry
When you’re a boy
When you’re a boy
You can wear a uniform
When you’re a boy
Other boys check you out
You get a girl
These are your favorite things
When you’re a boy
Boys
Boys
Boys keep swinging
Boys always work it out
Uncage the colors
Unfurl the flag
Luck just kissed you hello
When you’re a boy
They’ll never clone ya
You’re always first on the line
When you’re a boy
When you’re a boy
You can buy a home of your own
When you’re a boy
Learn to drive and everything
You’ll get your share
When you’re a boy
Boys
Boys
Boys keep swinging
Boys always work it out ❞

Enjoy!

and

Stay Safe!
