113 BILLY BOY
"O where have you been Billy Boy, Billy Boy, 0 where have you been, charming Billy?"
"I have been for a wife, she's the treasure of my life, She's a young thing but can't leave her mammie."
"Can she make a cherry pie, Billy Boy, Billy Boy, Can she make a cherry pie, charming Billy?"
" She can make a cherry pie quick as cat can wink her eye, She's a young thing but can't leave her mammie."
"Can she make a feather bed, Billy Boy, Billy Boy, Can she make a feather bed, charming Billy?"
"She can make it very neat from the head unto the feet, She's a young thing but can't leave her mammie."
"Can she make a loaf of bread, Billy Boy, Billy Boy Can she make a loaf of bread, charming Billy?"
"She can make a loaf of bread with a night cap on her head, She's a young thing but can't leave her mammie."
"Can she milk a mulie cow, Billy Boy, Billy Boy, Can she milk a mulie cow, charming Billy?"
