"Silly Thing" as written by and Paul Cook Steve Jones....
What you see, you can get
Nothing's free, nothing's said
Don't be fooled by the signs
Don't read in between the lines

What you're gonna say
What you're gonna do
Now you've missed out once again
But I thought you knew

Oh, you silly thing
You've really gone and done it now
Oh, you silly thing
You really gone and done it now

Trouble here, trouble there
People stop just to stare
What's the use of wasting time
Just move on, leave 'em all behind

What you're gonna say
What you're gonna do
Now you've missed out once again
But I thought you knew

Oh, you silly thing
You've really gone and done it now
Oh, you silly thing
You've really gone and done it now

Can't you ever depend
On someone you call a friend
When you see the naked eyes
You don't even ask 'em why
You don't even ask 'em why

Oh, you silly thing
You've really gone and done it now
Oh, you silly thing
You've really gone and done it now

    My InterpretationI think this song is about teenage confusion.

    "What you see, you can get
    Nothing's free, nothing's said"
    You can get what you want, whatever it is within reason. You just have to work for it.

    "Don't be fooled by the signs
    Don't read in between the lines"
    Seeing or hearing something that correlates with your insecurities or with your train of thought that in your head, means something deeper but in reality the only thing there is face value.

    "What you're gonna say
    What you're gonna do
    Now you missed that once again
    But of course you knew"
    After hearing somebody say something, confusion arises about what was meant and you aren't going to do or say anything but you'll think on it and you missed something, possibly part of the conversation but perhaps you still believe in what you thought they meant.

    "People stop just to stare"
    Feeling like everybody is staring at you

    "What's the use of wasting time
    Just move on, leave 'em all behind"
    Thinking back to a time and regretting whatever you did in that situation and that you should just move on and leave your thought alone because there's nothing you can do now.

    "Can't you ever depend
    On someone you call a friend"
    Calling somebody a friend, but not trusting them.
