Roger Daltrey — Giving It All Away lyrics

Writers: Leo Sayer & David Courtney

I paid all my dues so I picked up my shoes,
I got up and walked away.
Oh, I was just a boy,
I didn't no how to play.

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,
Ooh, I know better now, I know better now
Giving it all away

Ooh, I know better now, I know better now
I've given it all away...

Went out in the world too much for my nerves
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,
Ooh, I know better now, I know better now
Giving it all away

Ooh, I know better now, I know better now
Given it all away...
