Common Bill

I'm in love with a feller', a feller you have seen, who is neither red nor yeller nor
all together green. His name is not so charming It's only common Bill, he
asked me to wed him but I hardley think I will. Poor Bill, Poor Silly Bill, he
urges me to wed him, but I hardly think I will.
