William It Was Really Nothing
The Smiths Lyrics


The rain falls hard on a humdrum town
This town has dragged you down
Oh, the rain falls hard on a humdrum town
This town has dragged you down
Oh, no, and everybody's got to live their life
And God knows I've got to live mine
God knows I've got to live mine
William, William it was really nothing
William, William it was really nothing
It was your life

How can you stay with a fat girl who'll say
"Oh, would you like to marry me?
And if you like you can buy the ring"
She doesn't care about anything
Would you like to marry me?
And if you like you can buy the ring
I don't dream about anyone except myself
Oh, William, William it was really nothing
William, William

The rain falls hard on a humdrum town 
This town has dragged you down 
Oh, the rain falls hard on a humdrum town 
This town has dragged you down 
Oh, no, and everybody's got to live their life 
And God knows I've got to live mine 
God knows I've got to live mine 
William, William it was really nothing 
William, William it was really nothing 
It was your life...

How can you stay with a fat girl who'll say: 
"Oh! Would you like to marry me? 
"And if you like you can buy the ring" 
She doesn't care about anything 
Would you like to marry me?
And if you like you can buy the ring 
I don't dream about anyone - except myself!
Oh, William, William it was really nothing 
William, William



Desjer NN

La lluvia cae con fuerza sobre una ciudad monótona
The rain falls hard on a humdrum town

Esta ciudad te ha arrastrado hacia abajo
This town has dragged you down

Oh, la lluvia cae con fuerza en una ciudad monótona
Oh, the rain falls hard on a humdrum town
Esta ciudad te ha arrastrado hacia abajo
This town has dragged you down

Oh, no, y todo el mundo tiene que vivir su vida
Oh, no, and everybody's got to live their life

Y Dios sabe que tengo que vivir la mía
And God knows I've got to live mine

Dios sabe que tengo que vivir la mía
God knows I've got to live mine
William, William, en realidad no fue nada
William, William, it was really nothing

William, William, en realidad no fue nada
William, William, it was really nothing

era tu vida
It was your life

¿Cómo puedes quedarte con una chica gorda que dirá
How can you stay with a fat girl who'll say

"¡Oh! ¿Te gustaría casarte conmigo?
"Oh! Would you like to marry me?

Y si quieres puedes comprar el anillo"
And if you like you can buy the ring"
a ella no le importa nada
She doesn't care about anything

"¿Te gustaría casarte conmigo?
"Would you like to marry me?

Y si quieres puedes comprar el anillo"
And if you like you can buy the ring"

No sueño con nadie, excepto conmigo mismo.
I don't dream about anyone, except myself
Oh, William, William, en realidad no fue nada
Oh, William, William, it was really nothing

Guillermo, Guillermo
William, William

And God knows I've got to live mine 
God knows I've got to live mine 
William, William it was really nothing 
William, William it was really nothing 
It was your life...

How can you stay with a fat girl who'll say: 
"Oh! Would you like to marry me?

This town has dragged you down
