Yeah, yeah, yeah
Since you've been gone now, honey
Life ain't nothing but sad luck days
I begged on my knees now, sugar
You acted like you never knew my name

My friends saw you at the station
I guess you must have missed your train

Tell me is it 'cause you love me, Billy
Or is it just because you love the pain?

Billy, Billy
Ain't love hard to explain?
For a debutante you're a real hard woman
But I love you just the same

How come you're sad when I get happy?
Why do you laugh when I want to cry?
Tell me why when I say I need you
You turn around and you say goodbye?

Why do you think that a heart's so fragile?
Can you tell me why love's so blind?
Just like a magnet you pull me under
I can't resist you, we're two of a kind

Billy, Billy
Ain't love hard to explain?
For a debutante you're a real hard woman
But I love you just the same

Billy, Billy
Can we be lovers and friends?
Life is like a movie but this ain't pretend
There really have to be a happy end
[Incomprehensible]

Billy, Billy
Ain't love hard to explain?
For a debutante you're a real hard woman
But I love you just the same

I never said you had to walk on water
Or that I could ever stop the rain
Sometimes we break up just to make up, baby
And we don't care who's to blame

Billy, Billy
Ain't love hard to explain?
For a debutante you're a real hard woman
But I love you just the same

Billy, Billy
Can we be lovers and friends?
Life is like a movie but this ain't pretend
There really have to be a happy end

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Billy, Billy
Ain't love hard to explain?
Billy, Billy
I love you just the same
