Song of the Day: Book Of Love – “Boy”

Friends since high school, Ted and Susan Ottaviano (who share the same last name but are not related) initially worked musically with Jade Lee, Susan’s College of Art classmate at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, in the early 80’s. In 1983, the trio began recording as Book Of Love; the following year, Ted recruited New York’s School of Visual Arts classmate Lauren Roselli to round out the quartet.

I love the song “Boy” by Book of Love. Check it out.

And here are the full lyrics:

I want to be where the boys are
But I’m not allowed
I wait outside of the boy’s bar
I wait for them to all come out

I’m not a
Boy

It’s not my fault
That I’m not a boy
It’s not my fault
I don’t have those toys

I’m not a
Boy

And now it’s alright
Without those boys
I stay at home at night
And I play with my toys

I’m not a
Boy
