Little Billy was the fattest kid in his class
|Fm6/9             |C
 Always the last in line
       |C7                     |F6/9
All the other little kids would laugh at him
         |Fm6/9         |C     
Said he'd die before his time

Ha  ha ha  ha, Ha  ha ha  ha, Little Billy didn't mind

Most of the kids smoked cigarettes
Just to prove that they were cool
The teacher didn't know about the children's games
And Billy always followed the rules

[repeat chorus]

|D                   |                      |                 |C
 Billy was big on the outside and there's an even bigger man inside
   |D                      |             |                   |C    |D |
Ten million cigarettes burn every day and Billy's still doing fine

Now, Billy and his classmates are middle-aged
With children of their own
Their smoking game's a reality now 
And cancer's seed is sown 

[repeat chorus]

Most of them smoke maybe 40 a day
A habit Billy doesn't share 
One by one they're passing away 
Leaving orphans to Billy's care

[repeat chorus]
Ha ha ha ha, Ha ha ha ha, Ha ha ha ha, Little Billy doesn't mind
Ha ha ha ha, Ha ha ha ha, Little Billy's doing fine
