Billy Liar from the dingy part of town
Tries to find her
He goes around and around and around and around
But where can she be?
She's out walkin' the street
She must be the queen of the world
To have anything to do with me
To do with me

The bells ring out for newlyweds
And make me wish that I was dead
Where can she be?
Where can she be?
Is this for what the soldier bled?
For no one to share my bed?
Where can she be?
Where can she be?
Billy Liar

Billy Liar spent his life in lonely rooms
And never was blessed
With any confidence to lose
He's always polite
They ignore him all night
A strict Christian upbringing
More like a gentleman than a poor white boy
A poor white boy...

The bells ring out for newlyweds
And make me wish that I was dead
Where can she be?
Where can she be?
Is this for what the soldier bled?
For no one to share my bed?
Where can she be?
Where can she be?
Billy Liar

Finally got home there's blood on his head
Mama's gotta change the sheets on the bed
Billy's not bad, but his no account friends
Got him burnin' his candle at both of its ends
At both of its ends...

The bells ring out for newlyweds
And make me wish that I was dead
Where can she be?
Where can she be?
Is this for what the soldier bled?
For no one to share my bed?
Where can she be?
Where can she be?
Billy Liar
