Down in Texas near the DFW
Among the shrubs and patios and barbecues
Was born a suburban boy named Billy B Bad
Had a white bread momma and a rock and roll dad
Didn't have much soul or country roots
But he sure looked cute in his cowboy suit

B-B-B-B-Billy, Billy B Bad B-B-B-B-Billy, Billy B Bad
B-B-B-B-Billy, Billy B Bad B-B-B-B-Billy, Billy B Bad
B-B-B-B-Billy, Billy B Bad B-B-B-B-Billy, Billy B Bad
He can spot a trend and he knows a pad
He's a country singer named Billy B Bad.

--- Instrumental ---

He sounds like everybody on the radio
He's building up his biceps for the video
The people at the label said we like to start 'em young
We know you're twenty three but we'll say you're twenty one
They played him some Strait they played him some Jones
Now he's got that country music way down in his bones.

B-B-B-B-Billy, Billy B Bad B-B-B-B-Billy, Billy B Bad
B-B-B-B-Billy, Billy B Bad B-B-B-B-Billy, Billy B Bad
B-B-B-B-Billy, Billy B Bad B-B-B-B-Billy, Billy B Bad
Watch out for your daughters he's gonna drive 'em mad
The country sex symbol called Billy B Bad.

--- Instrumental ---

Now poor ol' Billy's at the end of the line
He's over the hill cause he's pushing twenty nine
He's not as young and he's not as handsome
He just tested positive for brandson
He'll never be that hot again
Look for his music in the oldies bin

B-B-B-B-Billy, Billy B Bad B-B-B-B-Billy, Billy B Bad
B-B-B-B-Billy, Billy B Bad B-B-B-B-Billy, Billy B Bad
B-B-B-B-Billy, Billy B Bad B-B-B-B-Billy, Billy B Bad
What a great career he had
Say goodbye to Billy B Bad...
