"Little Boy Blue" as written by Don Robey and La Charles Harper....
Little Boy Blue come blow your horn
The dish ran away with the spoon
Home again home again Saturday morn
And never gets up before noon

She used to render you legal and tender
When you used to send her your promises boy
A dillor a dollar unbutton your collar
Come out and holler out all of your noise

Little boy blue come blow your top
Cut it right down to the quick
Don't sit home and cry on the fourth of July
Around now you're hitting bricks

So abracadabra now she disappeared
Everything's Canada dry
So watch your behavior and rattle your cage
With a bottle of bourbon Good-bye

Little boy blow lost little Bo Peep
She fell through a hole in the nest
Now ain't it peculiar that she's finally cooled your
Big wheels just like all of the rest

Whenever it rains the umbrellas complain
They're always get played for a chump
So mark and strike it, she's history now
And you're hanging out at the pump

Little Boy Blue come blow your horn
The dish ran away with the spoon
Home again, home again Saturday morn
And never gets up before noon

Well she used to render you legal and tender
When you used to send her your promises boy
A dillor a dollar unbutton your collar
Come out and holler out all of your noise
