Boo Radley, Boo Radley what's your world like
Do you read any books, are you afraid of the night

Do you dream about heaven, Venus and Mars
Do you ever wonder why God made this life so hard

CHORUS
Boo Radley, Boo Radley what's inside your heart
Bet there's a fire there as bright as a star
What you afraid of and why do you hide
Boo Radley, Boo Radley won't you come on outside


Once you looked out the window and I saw your eyes
You looked so lonely I wanted to cry

So I knocked on the door, hoped you'd come outisde
But no one would answer, guess you're afraid of the light

CHORUS
Boo Radley, Boo Radley what's inside your heart
Bet there's a fire there as bright as a star
What you afraid of and why do you hide
Boo Radley, Boo Radley won't you come on outside

Instrumental break

There was a time we were afraid of you
You were talk of the neighborhood, so we named you Boo

Given the chance thought you'd bring us harm
Little did we know you loved us from afar

CHORUS
Boo Radley, Boo Radley what's inside your heart
Bet there's a fire there as bright as a star
What you afraid of and why do you hide
Boo Radley, Boo Radley thanks for saving my life

What you afraid of and why do you hide
Boo Radley, Boo Radley thanks for saving my life
