(Hey, Bill Bailey, Don't look now but somebody's calling you
Who? Why, your lady friend, that's who
If I were you, if I were you, I'd get my little old self home)

Won't you come home, Bill Bailey, won't you come home?
She moans the whole day long
I'll do the cookin', honey, I'll pay the rent
I know I done you wrong

Do you remember that rainy evenin'
I threw you out with nothin' but a fine tooth comb?
Yeah, I know I'm to blame, ain't it a shame
Bailey, won't you please come home

(A'walk on home, Bill.)

(Ah, like it like that!)

(Hey, Bailey! Let's go on home one more time ya'hear?)

Won't cha come home Bill Bailey, won't cha come home?
She moans the whole day long...
I'll do the cookin' honey, I'll even pay the rent
I know, I know I done you wrong...
Do you remember that rainy evenin', ah
That I drove you out, with nothin but a fine tooth comb?
(And you are bald!)
I know I'm to blame, well ain't it a shame
Bailey, won't cha please come
Bailey, won't cha please come
Bailey, won't cha please come
Bailey, won't cha please come, ah
Bailey, won't cha please come
C'mon
Baby, won't cha please come
Yo!
Baby, won't cha please come
Baby, won't cha please come
Baby, won't cha please come
One...more...time
Oh, Bailey won't cha please come home
