The Boxer lyrics

Facebook "The Boxer" by Paul Simon appeared on the Simon and Garfunkel album, 'Bridge Over Troubled Water' - 1969. The version originally released on the B-side of the single, "Mrs. Robinson", features an instrumental melody played by two guitars, a pedal steel guitar and piccolo trumpet.

Voted by many music publications in the top 100 songs of all time, this song carries so much emotion that many people want to study the lyrics for their true meaning. The depth of emotion comes partly from the lyrics, but also through the instrumentation, which is brilliant in its simplicity.

The song has been described as angry, sad, frustrated, lonely, fearful, regretful, and determined. The song's lyrics take the form of a first-person lament, as the singer describes his struggle to overcome loneliness and poverty in New York City.
