"Bill Bailey (Won't You Come Home)" as written by Ben Bernie, Kenneth Casey and Maceo Pinkard....
Won't you come home, Bill Bailey, won't you come home?
I've moaned the whole night long
I'll do the cookin', honey, I'll pay the rent
I know I done you wrong

You remember that rainy evenin'
I threw you out with nothin' but a fine-tooth comb
Ya, I know I'm to blame; now, ain't it a shame?
Bill Bailey, won't you, please, come home?

Won't you come home, Bill Bailey, won't you come on home?
I've moaned that whole day long
I'll do all the cookin', honey, I'll even pay the rent
I know that I have done you oh-so wrong

You remember that rainy evenin'
I throwed you out with nothin' but a fine-tooth comb
I know I'm to blame; now, ain't it a shame?
So, baby, won't you, please, come
I said now, won't you, please, come
Bill Bailey, won't you, please, come on home?

    General CommentThis song is about a guy named Bill Bailey who won't come home, his woman is so hard up for sex that she promises to do the cookin' and even pay the rent, rumor has it that Bill Bailey was pretty good in bed
