Pictures of Lily Lyrics

Play "Pictures of Lily"
on Amazon Music

I used to wake up in the morning
I used to feel so bad
I got so sick of having sleepless nights
I went and told my dad

He said, 'Son now here's some little something'
And stuck them on my wall
And now my nights ain't quite so lonely

    I don't see how this song is about masturbation, although everyone says it is.

    Pete Townshend and other members of the band have said this song is about masturbating. (It's pretty obvious)
