I love little Willie, I do.

Posted by | February 16, 2007

I love little Willie, I do.
Mama, I love little Willie, tra, la, la, la, la.
I love little Willie, but don’t tell Pa,
For he mightn’t like it, Mama, Mama.

He told me he loved me, he did, Mama,
He told me he loved me, tra, la, la, la, la.
He told me he loved me, but don’t tell Pa,
For he mightn’t like it, Mama, Mama.

And now we are married, Mama, Mama,
And now we are married, tra, la, la, la, la,
And now we are married, now you can tell Pa,
For he’s got to like it, Mama, Mama.
