Little Boy Blue Come blow your horn The dish ran away with the spoon Home again home again Saturday morn Never gets up before noon. She used to render You legal and tender When you used to Send her your promises boy A dill or a dollar Unbutton your collar Come out and holler Out all of your noise. Little boy blue Come blow your top Cut it rite down to the quick Don't sit home and cry On the fourth of july Around now you're hittin' bricks.
