Hip (Eponymous) Poor Boy lyrics Jack White

Lyrics

Well, I get into the game
But it’s always the same
I’m the man with the name
Hip eponymous poor boy
Poor boy

Call me whatever you may
I ain’t stopping the train
I got a pill for the pain
Hip eponymous poor boy
Poor boy

And I know
That I can’t defeat you
But you don’t worry now
I ain’t going to preach to you

Well, there you go
But I’ll be going right there with you
Yeah, wherever you’ll be
You’ll be looking at me

But don’t get out of your chair
Or put a bow in your hair
You might be making them stare so
Leave the care to the poor boy
The poor boy

And that’s the name of the game
Keep on staying the same
Ain’t nobody to blame
Nobody but the poor boy
The poor boy

Well ok, so you fell asleep today
What’s funny to me though
Is that you did that yesterday
You must think I’m mad
Doing all the things that I don’t need to do
But while you’re laughing at me
I’ll be laughing at you

So I get into the game
But always keep it the same
And I’ll be using your name
But they’ll be yelling at me poor boy
Poor boy

But I’ll be happy for you
Cause you got nothing to do
And I’ll be singing the blues
Walking around singing poor boy
Poor boy

Sometimes a cold shiver comes over me
And it turns me on
When the song takes over me
Well alright, I can’t fight if the odds are against me
But I can’t sit still
Because I know that I will

And you’ll be watching me, girl
Taking over the world
Let the stripes unfurl
Gettin’ rich singin’ poor boy
Poor boy

And I’ll be coming to play
I do it every day
And the title will stay
Hip eponymous poor boy
Poor boy

  1. Hip (eponymous) Poor Boy Lyrics

    When I get into the game
    But it’s always the same
    I’m the man with the name
    Hip eponymous poor boy,
    Poor boy

    Call me whatever you may
    I ain’t stopping the train
    I got a feel for the fame
    Hip eponymous poor boy,
    Poor boy


    And I know that I can’t defeat you
    Yeah but you go and worry now
    I ain’t gonna preach to you
    Well there go but I’ll be going right there with you
    Yeah where every you be
    You’ll be looking at me
    But don’t get out of your shell
    Put a bow in your hair
    You might be making them stare
    So leave the care to the poor boy,
    The poor boy

    And that’s the name of the game
    Keep on staying the same
    Ain’t nobody to blame
    Nobody but the poor boy,
    The poor boy

    Well okay, so you better sleep today
    Whats funny to me though
    Is that you did that yesterday
    You might think I’m mad
    Doing all the things that I don’t need to do
    But while you’re laughing at me
    Well I’ll be laughing at you

    So I get into the game but always keep it the same
    And I’ll be using your name
    But they’ll be yelling at me
    Poor boy, poor boy
    But I’ll be happy for you because you’ve got nothing to do
    And I’ll be singing the blues
    Walking around singing poor boy,
    Poor boy

    Sometimes a cold shiver comes over me
    And it turns me on
    When the song takes over me
    But alright, I can’t fight if the odds are against me
    But I can’t sit still because I know that I will
    And you’ll be watching me girl
    Taking over the world let the stripes unfurl
    Getting rich singing poor boy,
    Poor boy
    And I’ll be coming to play I do it every day
    And the title will stay
    Hip eponymous poor boy, Poor boy

  2. this song is so great. I cant help but see it as a message directed to Meg. With Jack finally out on his own, he shows his cheekiness with this beauty of a song.

    "Call me whatever you may I ain’t stopping the train I got a feel for the fame"
    hes saying hes on his way to becoming famous. theres no going back now.

    "So I get into the game but always keep it the same And I’ll be using your name But they’ll be yelling at me"
    hes back playing music and hes keeping Megs name (jack WHITE) but now its a solo thing.

    "But I’ll be happy for you because you’ve got nothing to do And I’ll be singing the blues"
    so since Meg isn't part of this work, she will have nothing to do apparently. Jack of course will be performing. (If you see this Jack, please come to Halifax)


    P.S. sorry for downloading the album, I couldnt help myself. If its any consolation, I pre ordered my copy today

  3. When I get into the game
    But it’s always the same

    And that’s the name of the game
    Keep on staying the same

    So I get into the game
    but always keep it the same

    what does he mean by the game? any ideas what he could be talking about?
