what they said
"Most of the lyrics for Boy were written while on stage. They were written under improvised circumstances, while on stage, closest to the song. As soon as I sit down, the soon as I try to write and put a pen in my hand my head gets in the way and I start to write rubbish."
- Bono, 1981
