True Blue Bill I was born up in the mountains, where the rattlesnakes have legs, Where the hootowls speak in English, and the roosters lay square eggs. I shaved my beard and mustache, the first day I was born, And I beat up on my old man and drank his riot corn. cho: Oh, I'm a truthful fellow, they call me True Blue Bill I never told a falsehood, and I bet I never will. One day when I was sailing the islands of the sea, By cannibals I was captured, and they tied me to a tree. They danced and beat their tom-toms, and they got rather rough, But I told them I wouldn't make good steak, 'cause I was too darn tough. I used to be an aviator, and in my aeroplane, I flew across to Paris and I started back again. When I got halfway over, the darned old motor balked, So I left the darn thing sit up there, and I got out and walked. The Father of Our Country, he never told a lie, and he was my great-great-grandmother, so I ask you why should I? JW oct99
