Willie the Weeper Did you ever hear the story of Willie the Weeper? He had a job as a chimney sweeper, He had the habit, and he had it bad. Listen, while I tell you 'bout the dream had. cho. Teet tee dee dee x2 Toot too do do do x2 Yah da da de da x2 Yah yah yah x2 He went to a hop-house the other night Where the lights were always shining bright. Guess he smoked a dozen pills or more; When he woke, 'twas on a foreign shore. The Queen of Sheba was the first he met, She called him her darlin' and her lovin' pet. She gave him a fancy automobile With a diamond headlight and a golden wheel. He landed with a splash, in the river Nile A'ridin' a sea-goin' crocodile. He winked at Cleopatra, she said "Aint he a sight! How about a date for next Saturday night?" He went to Monte Carlo, where he played roulette He couldn't lose a penny, and he won every bet. He played and he played 'till the bank went broke Then he turned around, and took another smoke. He went off to Turkey, by special request, He stayed 7 years, as the sultan's guest But when he got in with that harem crew What was a poor fellah like Willie to do? He had a million cattle and a million sheep. He had a million vessels on the ocean deep. He had a million dollars, all in nickles and dimes... Well he knew it 'cause he'd counted them a million times. He landed in New York, one evening late He asked his sugar to make a late date. He started to kiss her, then he made her pout When...bing,bang,bing...the dope gave out. Now this is the story of Willie the Weeper He's got a job as a chimney sweeper. Some day a pill too many he'll take And dreaming he's dead, he'll forget to wake. EL
