  • Billy Liar's got his hands in his pocketsStaring over at the neighbor's, knickers down.He's got his knickers down.So the summer is eternity for you?Sleeping in until your father's shaking you down,He's shaking you down.And the mailroom shift gets a real short shriftAs you dole out the packages, no-one seems to want you around,All skulking around.Let your legs loll on the lino'Til your sinews spoil.Will you stay here for a while, dear,'Til the radio plays something familiar?Plays something familiar.*This book also inspired a song by The Smiths
