Abstract

VERSE 1
Willie Meek tho’ good at grammar,
When he’d speak he’d always stammer,
And when he tried,
He’d be mortified,
He’d call on a girl named Helen, most evry day,
He’d start sighin’ like a dyin’ calf and then he’d say.

CHORUS 1
Oh H-H- Hel Oh H-H- Hel Oh Helen please be mine,
Your f-f- feat your f-f- feat your features are divine,
I s-s- swear I s-s- swear I swear I will be true,
Oh D-D- Dam Oh D-D- Damsel I love you.

CHORUS 2
Oh H-H- Hel Oh H-H- Hel Oh Helen please be mine,
You s-s- simp you s-s- simp you simply are divine,
You m-m- mud you m-m- mud you meddle me it’s true,
Oh D-D- Dam Oh D-D- Damsel I love you.

VERSE 2
Helen’s daddy knocked him silly,
Ripping mad he went for Willy,
Thought him profane,
Nearly went insane,
But when Willy Meek explained it,
It was all right,
Now her father doesn’t bother, when he says each night.
