I'd like to drop my trousers to the world
 
I'd like to drop my trousers to the world
I am a man of means, of slender means

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

And if the day came when I felt a
I'd get such a shock I'd probably jump in the ocean
+
natural emotion
And when a train goes by, it's such a sad sound
+
I'd get such a shock I'd probably jump
No, no, no, no, no
+
in the ocean
It's such a sad thing
+
and when a train goes by
 +
it's such a sad sound
    
I'd like to drop my trousers to the Queen
 
I'd like to drop my trousers to the Queen
Every sensible child will know what this means

Are selfish and greedy on her terms

It's such a sad thing

it's such a sad sound
    
And when I'm lying in my bed
 
And when I'm lying in my bed
I think about life and I think about death

I think about life
And neither one particularly appeals to me

and I think about death
And if the day came when I felt a natural emotion

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
 
I'd get such a shock I'd probably lie
In the middle of the street and die

in the middle of the street and die
I'd lie down and die, oh-oh
