Do you remember your first Hammersmith gig
How they queued up for hours in the rain
Spent all they had to get as near to the front
They thought it was worth it just to see you again
All the excitement with the lights going down
Your name was shouted like some magical word
Then the band fired up those opening chords
It seemed so loud I think the whole world must of heard it
Billy Billy did you know what they were going to do
Did you know that they were gonna make a star out of you
Billy Billy can you hear what I say
You better hang on to yourself don't let them take it all away
Billy Billy I'm scared of what they're putting you through

Seemed such a long way from when we were at school
Two skinny kids getting their first guitars
We drove them crazy with those tunes that we wrote
Down in the front room we'd be practising for hours and hours
Then the night came when we sang down the club
Guess we were lousy but they cheered just the same
I never thought about it much until now
That look that came into your eyes while we were playing

Billy Billy did you know what they were going to do
Did you know that they were gonna make a star out of you
Billy Billy can you hear what I say
You better hang on to yourself don't let them take it all away
Billy Billy I'm scared of what they're putting you through

You know I saw you up in town a while back
You walked straight by me as we passed in the door
I said hello but I guess that you never heard
Can't bring myself to play your albums anymore
You've got the papers tripping over themselves
Your mum still cuts out each and every word
At home they talk about you all of the time
I hope they give you everything that you deserve

Billy Billy did you know what they were going to do
Did you know that they were gonna make a star out of you
Billy Billy can you hear what I say
You better hang on to yourself don't let them take it all away
Billy Billy I'm scared of what they're putting you through
