GOODNIGHT LADIES (Music: Egbert Van Alstyne / Lyrics: Harry Williams - 1911) Morley & Gearhart (Instr.) - 1954 Big Bill Taylor was a bachelor boy Joy! Oh, Joy! Midnight sailor in the town of Troy Ship ahoy! Ev'ry night his one delight Was stealing married men Away from home, with him to roam Before the clock struck ten They loved their wives more than their lives Till Bill would trill to them Goodnight ladies, we must leave you soon Merrily we roll along with Mister Moon Sailing, sailing all over town Tonight's the night, put out your light And come on down Wives all gathered on a winding stair Gloom! Oh, Gloom! With what furniture they cared to spare And a broom! "Come in, Bill and have a gill" But after he got there Then through the door he promptly tore Accompanied by a chair And as he beat it down the street He murmured in despair Goodnight ladies, I must leave you soon Merrily we roll along with Mister Moon Sailing, sailing all over town Tonight's the night, you win the fight But don't come down (Contributed by Mel Priddle - October 2017)
