Bill walked me to my door last night
And he said, 'Before I go...
There's something about our love affair
That I have a right to know...'
I said, 'Let's not stand out here like this
What would the neighbors think?
Why don't we just... step inside
And I'll fix us both a drink'

Chorus:
My girl, Bill
My, my, girl, Bill
Can't say enough about the way I feel
About my girl
(My girl my girl)
My girl Bill

William's hands were shaking
As he took his glass of wine
I could see we both felt the same
When his eyes met mine
I said, 'Who we love and why we love
It's hard to understand
So let's just sit here on the couch
And face this, man to man'

Chorus

Bill, you know we just left her place
And we both know what she said
She doesn't want to see your face
And she wishes you were dead
Now, I know we both love her
And I guess we always will
But you're gonna have to find another
'Cause she's my girl... Bill

My girl Bill
My, my, girl Bill
Can't say enough about the way I feel
About my girl
(My girl my girl)
Talkin' 'bout my little girl
My girl, Bill

    You need to take out all the commas where you have "My girl, Bill". Jim fought the record company to keep the comma out of the title. If you put the comma in, you are giving away the punch line.

    Two men are in love with the same girl, william and the other guy (singing the song) confronted the girl, and the girl doesn't want to see william anymore. So the other guy is telling william, that she's "my girl, bill" (short for william).
