Billy Boy

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;
But she's a young thing, and cannot leave her ma.

Does she light you up to bed, Billy Boy, Billy Boy?
Does she light you up to bed, charming Billy?
Yes, she lights me up to bed,
With a nightcap on her head;
And she's a young thing, and cannot leave her mother.
