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
 +
No, no, no, no, no
 +
It's such a sad thing
    +
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
 +
No, no, no, no, no
 +
It's such a sad thing
 +
 +
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, oh-oh
