Mountains of Lhasa are feeling the rain
 People are walking the Botella lanes
 Preacher takes the school 
One boy breaks a rule
 Silly Boy Blue, silly Boy Blue

Yak butter statues that melt in the sun
 Cannot dissolve all the work you've not done

You'll never leave your body now
You've got to wait to die

La la la la la la la la la la [Repeat: x2]
La la la la la [Repeat: x2]
 Silly Boy Blue, silly Boy Blue

 Child of Tibet, you're a gift from the sun
 Reincarnation of one better man
The homeward road is long
You've left your prayers and song
 Silly Boy Blue, silly Boy Blue
 Silly Boy Blue, silly Boy Blue
