Billy, Billy Bayou, watch where you go You`re walking on quicksand, walk slow Billy, Billy Bayou, watch what you say A pretty girl`ll get you one of these days Billy was a boy kind of big for his size Red hair, freckles, and big blue eyes Thirteen years from the day he was born Bill fought the battle of the Little Big Horn (Chorus) One sad day Billy cried `Ho! Ho! I can whip the feathers off of Geronimo` He smarted off, the chief got mad This nearly ended our Louisiana lad Chorus) One day in eighteen seventy-eight A pretty girl walked through Bill`s front gate He didn`t know whether to stand there or run He wound up married `cause he didn`t either one Chorus) Pretty girl`ll get you one of these days
