Big Bad Bill Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Well, I went down yonder in Louisville
Lived a cat named Big Bad Bill, I wants ta tell ya
Ah, the cat was rough and tough he would strut his stuff
Had the whole town scared to death
When he walked by, they all held their breath
He's a fightin' man, sure enough

And then Bill got himself a wife
Now he leads a different life

Big Bad Bill is Sweet William now
Married life done changed him somehow
He's the man the town used to fear
Now they all call him Sweet Papa Willy Dear
Stronger than Sampson I declare
'Til a brown-skinned woman's bobbed his hair

Big Bad Bill don't fight anymore, no, no, no
He's doin' the dishes and moppin' up that floor, yes he is
Well he used to go out drinkin' lookin' for a fight
Now he gotta see that sweet woman every night
Big Bad Bill is Sweet William now

Aw, play it boys
Aw, yeah!
Whoo!
I likes that, yeah
Yeah, say I

Ahh, well, Big Bad Bill don't fight anymore, no, he don't
He's doin' the dishes and moppin' up that floor, yes he is
Well he used to go out drinkin' lookin' for a fight
Now he gotta see that sweet woman every night
Big Bad Bill is Sweet William now, doin' the dishes
Big Bad Bill is Sweet William now, moppin' up that floor!
Big Bad Bill is Sweet William now

Cha!
Yeah!
