I Was Always A Willing Young Lad-1926
  Edison Bell/Winner 4409 Hargreaves/Damerell

I'm John William Billy, and folks state to me
That I'm a most willing young man they agree
They've nick-named me "Willing John Willie, the sport",
Though all my pals called me "Dogs Body" for short

I met a young French female girl yesterday
She smiled, I smiled back and said "It's been a nice day."
I was always a willing young lad, and she looked very Frenchie and bad
She called me "Monsieur" (mon-sewer) as I went passing by
Said, "Lala, you compre me", then winked her eye.
I said, "I don't know what it means, but I'll try"
I was always a willing young lad.

Patter

The burglars broke into our house t'other night
The wife said "Go down!" I said, "No, it's not right.
You know what I am, so hot-headed and strong,
I might kill 'em all then I'll go and get hung."
She said, "Go and see, perhaps it's only the cat".
I got up and said, "Well, we'll soon settle that".

I was always a willing young lad, they were burglars ee, I was mad
He stood seven foot from his feet to his lid
He picked up a jemmy and said, "Look here kid,
You hop it before you get hurt", so I did.
I was always a willing young lad.
