Lyrics

I'd like to drop my trousers to the world I am a man of means (of slender means) each household appliance is like a new science in my town And if the day came when I felt a natural emotion I'd get such a shock I'd probably jump in the ocean and when a train goes by it's such a sad sound

I'd like to drop my trousers to the Queen every sensible child will know what this means the poor and the needy are selfish and greedy on her terms and if the day came when I felt a natural emotion I'd get such a shock I'd probably jump in the ocean and when a train goes by it's such a sad sound

And when I'm lying in my bed I think about life and I think about death and neither one particularly appeals to me and if the day came when I felt a natural emotion I'd get such a shock I'd probably lie in the middle of the street and die I'd lie down and die
