|C7 |F6/9 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
[chorus] G/B C5 G/B|C G/B C G/B|F |G |C G/B C G/B|C 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
