  • Got new shoes today my friends
    I hope you like them they have velcro straps
    I think I'll wear them home and then
    Decide to rip them off and take a bath
    Okay

    Now in the tub I have more friends
    The yellow duckie and the floating house
    I think I'll break them both again
    But that's alright 'cause I don't need them any more

    Perhaps this time we'll build a tree house
    Where we can climb and waste the boring days away
    Maybe this time we'll build a go-kart
    And drive around the world
    Billy let's play
    Billy let's play

    It's time for lunch so what's to eat?
    PB and J cut up in squares of four
    A glass of milk for little Pete
    He's such a good boy let him have some more
    A tale of black birds in the trees
    A faithless man who hides behind closed doors
    So many lovely memories
    A happy face was all I ever needed

    Perhaps this time we'll build a tree house
    Where we can climb and waste the boring days away
    Maybe this time we'll build a go-kart
    And drive around the world
    Billy let's play
    Billy let's play

    Let me be for the last time
    Let me be for the last time
    Set me free one more time
    Set me free one more time

    I got new shoes today my friends
    I hope you like them they have velcro straps
