|Performed By:||Leon Redbone (1978)|
In the town of Louieville Lived a man they called Big Bad Bill; I want to tell you, he sure was tough - He certainly did strut that stuff. He had folks scared to death; When he walked by they held their breath. He was a fightin' man, sure enough. Now Bill took himself a wife, Just to lead a dif'frent life. Big Bad Bill is Sweet William now; Married life has changed him somehow. He's the man that they all used to fear Now the people call him sweet Papa Willy Dear Stronger than Samson, I declare, 'Til a soft-skinned Delilah bobbed his hair. Big Bad Bill don't fight anymore; Washes dishes and he mops up the floor. Used to spend his ev'nings lookin' for a fight; Now he's got to see his momma ev'ry night. Big Bad Bill is Sweet William now.
