Oh Billy, What Did You Do?

This is about Billy and how a bad situation got worse.

Sometimes it might make more sense to just stay home.

Oh Billy whatcha gonna' do?
You drive downtown, you look around,
Oh Billy, whatcha gonna' do?
Don't see your friends,
Everybody has left the scene.
Oh Billy, whatcha gonna' do?
Drive around in your beat-up car,
Oh Billy whatcha gonna' do?
Still looking, finding nobody,
Now Billy, whatcha gonna' do?

Somebody takes time to tell you,
They're all over there.
Having a big party, drinking away.
Oh Billy, whatcha gonna' do?
You go to the party, there you find,
Your best girl dancing with some guy.
Try to cut in, but she says no.
Oh Billy, whatcha gonna' do?
Try again, no again!
Oh Billy whatcha gonna' do?

Walk away, you try to wait,
They keep dancing, is this fate?
Oh Billy, whatcha gonna' do?
Drink some more, feeling bad,
They keep on dancing,
You're mad as hell!
Oh Billy whatcha gonna' do?
Leave the party, gonna' go home,
Oh Billy, maybe you shouldn'
Drive so fast, but it's too late,
Didn' see the curve, turned too sharp,
Oh, oh Billy, what did you do?
