    Lyrics

    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 whole life
    But 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
    But 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, there's a dimple in her chin
    But 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
    But 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, she has ringlets in her hair
    But she's a young thing and cannot leave her mother

    Can she cook and can she spin, Billy Boy, Billy Boy?
    Can she cook and can she spin, Charming Billy?
    She can cook and she can spin, she can do most anything
    But 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 as a cat can wink her eye
    But 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 and put pillows at the head
    But she's a young thing and cannot leave her mother

    Can she make a pudding well, Billy Boy, Billy Boy?
    Can she make a pudding well, Charming Billy?
    She can make a pudding well, I can tell it by the smell
    But 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
    But 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 her bonnet white as birch
    But 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
    But 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
    But 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
    But 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
    But she's a young thing and cannot leave her mother

    Is she fit to be a wife, Billy Boy, Billy Boy?
    Is she fit to be a wife, Charming Billy?
    She's as fit to be a wife as a fork fits to a knife
    But she's a young thing and cannot leave her mother
