'Y' is a story about the changes in a boy whose girl wants to marry him ('Norway'). At first, Dan is a popular, good student ('We're Back' - & 'Wojerdo?). As his relationship with Patsy developes, he feels trapped ('Solitude'), and lashes out at his school ('Dontcha'). He leaves school to make money ('Getnajob'). The situation is resolved by a confrontation with his father, and 2 years later, he sees how trivial were his school problems ('Thack').
'Y' looks at the prospects for a young father ('Wottif?'), and ends with a simple moral ('Freedom').
