VERSE I
                     G                   Em
Billy Liar's got his hands in his pockets
                    A                         Em
Staring over at his neighbor's, knickers down.
A                          Em        A        D
He's got his knickers down.
                 G                Em
So the summer is eternity for you?
                       A                        Em
Sleeping in until your father's shaking you down
A                     Em        A
He's shaking you down.
        G
And the mailroom shift gets a real short shrift
       F#m                                                   Em
As you dole out the packages, no-one seems to want you around
A              Em    A
All skullking around.

CHORUS
D        Bm       D       Bm
Let your legs loll on the lino
D         F#m         Em        G    A
'Til your sinews spoil
D        Bm       D     Bm
Will you stay here for awhile, dear,
D        F#m  Em     G
'Til the radio plays something familiar?
      A
Plays something familiar.

VERSE II (Same Chords) All a-drifting, he's the nogood boyo Sent a-fishing for a whalebone corset frame (The only catch all day) So he sits and lets the current take him A gentle breeze will leave his pants in disarray And at his ankles laid. As he drifts to sleep with a moan and a weep He is decked by a Japanese geisha with a garland of pearls How she twists and twirls! CHORUS (Same Chords and Words) *ADD D F#m Em G 'Til the radio plays something familiar A Plays something familiar Em Plays something familiar A Plays something familiar
