Billy was a good friend of mine
We grew up together ever since we were nine
We went to school, he was my best friend
And i thought our friendship would never end

In high school he played football
And me, i didn't do anything at all
He made touch-downs, while i played pool
And no one could figure out which one of us was the fool

Then we both went to collage
He studied medicine while i studied foliage
He got a's and i got d's
He was going for his ph.d.
Then i decided to drop out

Things were getting a little too hot
Billy stayed there, became an intern and then a doctor
Then war broke out and he had to go
But not me, i was mentally unfit, or so they say, so, so

When he came back, he wasn't quite the same
His nerves were shot, but not me
Last time i saw him, i couldn't take it anymore
He wasn't the billy i knew, it was like talking to a door

Billy was a friend of mine
I grew up with him ever since i was nine
We went together through school
And now i often wonder, which one of us was the fool
