Not my boy! Not Bill! Bill, my boy Bill I will see that he is named after me, I will. My boy, Bill! No pot-bellied, baggy-eyed bully Will boss him around. He can sit on his tail Or work on a rail With a hammer, hammering spikes! He can ferry a boat on a river Or peddle a pack on his back Or work up and down The streets of a town With a whip and a horse and a hack. He can haul a scow along a canal Run a cow around a corral Or maybe bark for a carousel Of course it takes talent to do that well.
No fat-bottomed, flabby-faced, Pot-bellied, baggy-eyed bully Will boss him around. Could it be? What the hell! What if he is a girl?
What would I do with her? What could I do for her? A bum with no money! What a pair! My little girl Pink and white As peaches and cream is she My little girl Is half again as bright As girls are meant to be!
Dozens of boys pursue her Many a likely lad does what he can to woo her From her faithful dad She has a few Pink and white young fellers of two or three But my little girl Gets hungry every night and she comes home to me! I got to get ready before she comes!
