Willie and Lillie used to live on a hill Wasn't for rock n' roll Lillie be there still Rock her own little rock-a-billys Made me lose a-my sweet, little, Lillie
Forty days, forty nights Still no Lillie in sight Up on the mountain like a jack Hollin' an howlin' 'til Lillie, come back Up on the mountain I was facin' the moon Ev'ry little star tell me be Lillie, soon
Up on the mountain at the general store Willie's mama bought him a hi-fi, his very own On up the road, Willie strolled Just about the time Lillie knocked on the do' She said, 'Hello, Willy I love you so' He said, 'Hello, Lillie why did you go? ' She said, 'A-hello, Willie I ain't gon' leave no mo'
He said, 'Hello, Lillie I love you, so' FADES- 'Hello, Willie, I love you, so' FADES- He said, a-hello Lillie.
