Big Bad Bill (Is Sweet William Now)
Milton Ager, Jack Yellen


In the town of Louisville
There was a man they called Big Bad Bill
I wants to tell you, he sure was tough
And he surely did struck his stuff

He had folks all scared to death
When he walked by they held their breath
He was a fighting man, sure enough
Now Bill's took himself a wife and he leads a different life

Big Bad Bill is Sweet William now
Married life has changed him somehow
He was a man they all used to fear
But now the people call him Sweet Papa Willie Dear
Stronger than Samson I declare
'Til a brown skinned mama bobbed Bill's hair

Big Bad Bill don't fight anymore
He washes dishes and he mops up the floor
Well, he used to spend his evenings lookin' for a fight
Now he's gotta see his mama every night
Big Bad Bill is Sweet William now

break (Big Bad Bill don't fight anymore ...)


Well, he used to spend his evenings lookin' for a fight
Now he's gotta see his mama every night
Oh, Big Bad Bill is Sweet William now
