Lyrics

The rain falls hard on a humdrum town This town has dragged you down Oh, the rain falls hard on a humdrum town This town has dragged you down Oh, no, and everybody's got to live their life And God knows I've got to live mine God knows I've got to live mine

William, William it was really nothing William, William it was really nothing It was your life...

How can you stay with a fat girl who'll say: "Oh! Would you like to marry me? "And if you like you can buy the ring" She doesn't care about anything Would you like to marry me? And if you like you can buy the ring I don't dream about anyone - except myself!

Oh, William, William it was really nothing William, William
