Ed S. It's a wonderfully catchy song filled with infectious hooks and colorful chords that made me hit the 'repeat' button again and again and again.

lyrics

Looks like the street lights are coming on
Billy Boy
And it's time that you were headed back home
Billy Boy

They'll be calling your name out soon
Telling you it's time to come and clean your room
There'll be no more sleeping in until noon, Billy Boy

You are headed for another world now
Headed for another world, Billy Boy

There is a carnival down in town
Billy Boy
Are you gonna go take a look around?
Billy Boy

Are you gonna walk along the track?
Just keep walking and never look back
Until you find the footing you lack, Billy

You are headed for another world now
Headed for another world, Billy Boy

Another day, another surprise
Another place that you don't recognize
Don't worry though, it only lasts a lifetime or so
There you go!

Now don't your home seem so far away
Billy Boy
About a hundred years since graduation day
Billy Boy

How can a bright sun burn so cold?
How can a young man feel so old?
Here's hoping for a hand to hold, Billy Boy
