"William, It Was Really Nothing" as written by and Steven Patrick/marr Morrissey....
The rain falls hard on a humdrum town
This town has dragged you down
Oh, the rain falls hard on a humdrum town
This town has dragged you down
Oh, no, and everybody's got to live their life
And God knows I've got to live mine
God knows I've got to live mine
William, William it was really nothing
William, William it was really nothing
It was your life

How can you stay with a fat girl who'll say
"Oh, would you like to marry me?
And if you like you can buy the ring"
She doesn't care about anything
Would you like to marry me?
And if you like you can buy the ring
I don't dream about anyone except myself
Oh, William, William it was really nothing
William, William
