Bill Bailey Won't You Please Come Home
Bobby Darin Lyrics


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 cooking, honey, I'll pay the rent
I know I done you wrong

Do you remember that rainy evening
I threw you out with nothing 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 you hear)

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

Do you remember that rainy evening, ah
That I drove you out, with nothing but a fine tooth comb
(And you are bald)
I know I'm to blame, well ain't it a shame

Bailey, won't you please come
Bailey, won't you please come
Bailey, won't you please come
Bailey, won't you please come, ah
Bailey, won't you please come

Come on, baby, won't you please come
Yo baby, won't you please come
Baby, won't you please come
Baby, won't you please come
One more time
Oh, Bailey won't you please come home
(Get on home)

On this day in 1960 {June 7th} Bobby Darin performed "Bill Bailey, Won't You Please Come Home?" on the NBC-TV program 'The George Burns Show'...
At the time the song was at #43 on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; a little under four weeks later on July 4th, 1960 it would peak at #19 {for 1 week} and it stayed on the chart for 11 weeks...
The record's B-side, "I'll Be There", also made the Top 100; it reached #79 on the chart...
Between 1958 and 1973 he had forty Top 100 records; ten made the Top 10 with one reaching #1, "Mack the Knife" for 9 weeks in 1959...
He just missed having a second #1 record when "Dream Lover" peaked at #2* {for 1 week} in 1959...
Mr. Darin, born Walden Robert Cassotto, passed away on December 20th, 1973 at the young age of 37...
May he R.I.P.
* The week "Dream Love" it was at #2, the #1 record for that week was "The Battle of New Orleans" by Johnny Horton...

Years later George Burns guested on Bobby Darin's prime time variety hour. Sadly not long after that Bobby tragically died too young. A great talent we lost much too soon! ♣
