A very popular song.

C.............................................................................
Where have ye been all the day, Billy Boy, Billy Boy?

Where have ye been all the day, me Billy Boy?

I've been walking all the day

Oh me charming Billy Boy.

 

Is she fit to be your wife, Billy boy, Billy Boy?

Is she fit to be your wife, me Billy Boy?

She's as fit to be me wife

As the fork is to the knife.

And me Nancy ktilled me fancy,

Oh me charming Billy Boy.

Can she cook an bit o' steak, Billy boy, Billy Boy?

Can she cook a bit o' steak, me Billy Boy?

She can cook a bit o' steak,

Aye, and make a girdle cake,

And me Nancy kittled me fancy,

Oh me charming Billy Boy.

 

Can she makie an Irish stew, Billy boy, Billy Boy?

Can she make an Irish stew, me Billy Boy?

She can make an Irish stew,

Aye, and "Singin' Hinnies" too,

And me Nancy kittled me fancy,

Oh me charming Billy Boy
