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, 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, 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
