"Stories For Boys" (live from Boston '81)

From a long time ago
Stories for boys
1-2-3-4

There's a place I go when I am far away
There's a radio and I will grow
Sometimes a hero takes me
Sometimes I don't let go
Hello, hello

There's a picture book with color photographs
There's a comic strip that makes me laugh
Sometimes a hero takes me
Sometimes I don't let go
Hello, hello

Stories for boys, stories for boys
Stories for boys, stories for boys
Stories for boys

There's a place I go when I am far away
There's a radio and I will grow
Sometimes a hero takes me
Sometimes I don't let go
Hello, hello

Stories for boys, stories for boys
Stories for boys, stories for boys
Stories for boys, stories for boys
Stories for boys, stories for boys
Stories for boys, boys, boys
