|First line of chorus: For when I walk I always walk with Billy cause Billy knows just where to walk|
VERSE 01: Behold in me a maiden who is feeling sad,/Yearning for a wedding day,/It’s just because I love a man I feel so bad,/Now that he has gone away,/Though I have his picture near,/It can’t love and call me dear,/So I confess I’m hungry for some real live love,/How I wish that Bill were here.
CHORUS: For when I walk I always walk with Billy/Cause Billy knows just where to walk,/And when I talk, I always talk with Billy,/Cause Billy knows just how to talk,/And when I dine I always dine with Billy,/He takes me where I get my fill,/And when I sleep and when I sleep,/I always dream of Bill.
VERSE 02: It seems somehow each man I meet makes eyes at me,/But it only makes me blue,/And though each day a lot of handsome chaps I see,/To my sweetheart I’ll be true,/I have kissed his picture till,/It no longer looks like Bill,/If he knew what was waiting for him he’d come home,/Then my heart with joy he’d fill.
