Verse:
Be - hold in me a maid - en who is feel - in' sad.  Yearn - ing for a wed - ding day.
It's just be - cause I love a man I feel so bad,  Now that he has gone a - way,
Though I have his pic - ture near,  It can't love and call me dear.
So I con - fess I'm hung - ry for some real live love,  How I wish that Bill were here.
 
Chorus:
For when I walk,  I al - ways walk with Bil - ly,  'Cause Bil - ly knows just where to walk,
And when I talk,  I al - ways talk with Bil - ly,  'Cause Bil - ly knows just how to talk.
And when I dine, I al - ways dine with Bil - ly,  He takes me where I get my fill.
Want you to know,  I love him so,  I just want to be with Bill.
