Billy Boy

This song is by Unknown Artist.

Version 1
Oh, where have you been
Billy boy, Billy boy?
Oh, where have you been
Charming Billy?
I have been to seek a wife
She's the joy of my life
She's a young thing
And cannot leave her mother

Did she ask you to come in
Billy boy, Billy boy?
Did she ask you to come in
Charming Billy?
Yes, she asked me to come in
There's a dimple in her chin
She's a young thing
And cannot leave her mother

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 a cat can wink an eye
She's a young thing
And cannot leave her mother

How old is she
Billy boy, Billy boy?
How old is she
Charming Billy?
Three times six and four times seven
Twenty-eight and eleven
She's a young thing
And cannot leave her mother

Version 2

Oh, where have you been
Billy boy, Billy boy?
Oh, where have you been
Charming Billy?
I have been to seek a wife
She's the idol of my life
She's a young thing
And cannot leave her mother

Where does she live
Billy boy, Billy boy?
Oh, where does she live?
Charming Billy?
She lives on the hill
Forty miles from the mill
She's a young thing
And cannot leave her mother

Did she bid you to come in
Billy boy, Billy boy?
Did she bid you to come in
Charming Billy?
Yes, she bade me to come in
And to kiss her on the chin
She's a young thing
And cannot leave her mother

Did she take your hat
Billy boy, Billy boy?
Did she take your hat
Charming Billy?
Yes, she took my hat
And she threw it at the cat
She's a young thing
And cannot leave her mother

Did she set for you a chair
Billy boy, Billy boy?
Did she set for you a chair
Charming Billy?
Yes, she set for me a chair
But the bottom wasn't there
She's a young thing
And cannot leave her mother

Can she bake a cherry pie
Billy boy, Billy boy?
Can she bake a cherry pie
Charming Billy?
She can bake a cherry pie
Quick's a cat can wink her eye
She's a young thing
And cannot leave her mother

Can she make a feather bed
Billy boy, Billy boy?
Can she make a feather bed
Charming Billy?

She can make a feather bed
That will rise above your head
She's a young thing
And cannot leave her mother

Can she milk a heifer calf
Billy boy, Billy boy?
Can she milk a heifer calf
Charming Billy?
Yes, she can, and not miss
The bucket more than half
She's a young thing
And cannot leave her mother

Is she often seen at church
Billy boy, Billy boy?
Is she often seen at church
Charming Billy?
Yes, she's often seen at church
With a bonnet white as birch
She's a young thing
And cannot leave her mother

And is she very tall
Billy boy, Billy boy?
And is she very tall
Charming Billy?
She's as tall as any pine
And as straight as a pumpkin vine
She's a young thing
And cannot leave her mother

Are her eyes very bright
Billy boy, Billy boy?
Are her eyes very bright
Charming Billy?
Yes, her eyes are very bright
But, alas, they're minus sight
She's a young thing
And cannot leave her mother

Can she sing a pretty song
Billy boy, Billy boy?
Can she sing a pretty song
Charming Billy?
She can sing a pretty song
But she often sings it wrong
She's a young thing
And cannot leave her mother

How old may she be
Billy boy, Billy boy?
How old may she be
Charming Billy?
Three times six and four times seven
Twenty eight and eleven
She's a young thing
And cannot leave her mother
