old wolf, from tail to tooth And I know that he's hungry and he's coming down too. Well I could swim every sea from south pole to north And I could climb every tree, and scale every coarse Well I could tell only the truth from this day forth But I know I'll only ever be the boy who cried wolf. Oh, oh I am the boy who cried wolf Oh, I am the boy who cried wolf. Writer(s): MICHAEL ROSENBERG.

The Boy Who Cried Wolf is one of Aesop's Fables, numbered 210 in the Perry Index. From it is derived the English idiom "to cry wolf", defined as "to give a false alarm" in Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable and glossed by the Oxford English Dictionary as meaning to make false claims, with the result that subsequent true claims are disbelieved. The tale concerns a shepherd boy who repeatedly tricks nearby villagers into thinking wolves are attacking his flock

This week, I listened to Passenger's new album, The Boy Who Cried Wolf. Unsurprisingly, the music can almost lean into country at times, particularly in the track Setting Suns. All of these songs, in their quietness, could be seen as comforting to the person who enjoys quiet music. Video Player is loading.
