Tell old Bill, when he comes home this evening,

Tell old Bill, when he comes home,

This morning, this evening, so soon.

Bill left by the alley gate this morning,
Bill left by the alley gate this evening,
Bill left by the alley gate,
  and old Sal says, "Now don't be late."
This morning, this evening, so soon.

Bill's wife was a-baking bread this morning,
Bill's wife was a-baking bread this evening,
Bill's wife was a-baking bread,
  when she found out that her Bill was dead,
This morning, this evening, so soon.

Oh no, that can't be so this morning,
Oh no, that can't be so this evening,
Oh no, that can't be so,
  Bill left here about an hour ago,
This morning, this evening, so soon.

They brought Bill home in  a hurry-up wagon this morning
They brought Bill home in  a hurry-up wagon this evening,
They brought Bill home in  a hurry-up wagon,
   poor dead Bill how his toes were a-dragging,

Tell old Bill when he comes home this morning,
Tell old Bill when he comes home this evening,
Tell old Bill when he comes home,
   to leave them downtown gals alone,
This morning, this evening, so soon.
