BILLY BOY Dan Howell (m) Jack Lawrence (l) derived from trad English song 1828 as rec by Ray McKinley & The Andrews Sisters Nov 21st 1938 [as] Has anybody seen Billy Boy? Since he fell in love he's such a silly boy! We ain't seen him, hide or hair, (whistle) But lookee there! Creepers jeepers, well I declare! That whistle means Billy Boy is here! Oh where have you been, Billy Boy, Billy Boy, Oh where have you been, charmin' Billy? [rm] I've been up the road above, Just a-visitin' my love, She's a nice young thing when she cannot leave her mother! [as] Did she ask you to tea, Billy Boy, Billy Boy, Did she ask you to tea, charmin' Billy? [rm] Yes, she asked me to tea, Then she sat right down upon my knee! [as] She's a young thing and cannot leave her mother! Can she bake a cherry pie? [rm] In the twinklin' of an eye! [as] Is she feelin' for your wife? [rm] As my pocket for my knife! [as] Did you ask her to wed, Billy Boy, Billy Boy, Did you ask her to wed, charmin' Billy? [rm] Yes, I asked her would she wed? And what do you think she said? [as] I'm a young thing but I will leave my mother! Just for you, Billy Boy, Just for you, Billy Boy, For you, just you and no other! You've been waitin' a long time For the weddin' bells to chime, She's a young thing, she will leave my mother! (scat) Do you love her, Billy Boy? Do you love her, Billy Boy? [rm] Yes I love her, but not like a brother! [as] Have you thought of everything? Where's the license? Where's the ring? [rm] Here 'tis! [as] She's a young thing who's gonna leave her mother! It's love, oh Bill, my boy, (scat) She's young, she's gonna leave her mother! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - August 2011)
