Little Billy was the fattest kid in his class

|Fm6/9 |C

Always the last in line

|C7 |F6/9

All the other little kids would laugh at him

|Fm6/9 |C

Said he'd die before his time



G/B C5 G/B|C G/B C G/B|F |G |C G/B C G/B|C

Ha ha ha ha, Ha ha ha ha, Little Billy didn't mind


Most of the kids smoked cigarettes

Just to prove that they were cool

The teacher didn't know about the children's games

And Billy always followed the rules


[repeat chorus]


|D | | |C

Billy was big on the outside and there's an even bigger man inside

|D | | |C |D |

Ten million cigarettes burn every day and Billy's still doing fine


Now, Billy and his classmates are middle-aged

With children of their own

Their smoking game's a reality now

And cancer's seed is sown


[repeat chorus]


Most of them smoke maybe 40 a day

A habit Billy doesn't share

One by one they're passing away

Leaving orphans to Billy's care


[repeat chorus]

Ha ha ha ha, Ha ha ha ha, Ha ha ha ha, Little Billy doesn't mind

Ha ha ha ha, Ha ha ha ha, Little Billy's doing fine
