The Friends Of Billy Bear
Is there a wolf in the house

Or a scapegoat or a man who's never scared

Is there anyone that can show me a photograph

Is there a friend of billy bear



Because he's as tough as railings and built like a hill

His head's a gentle slope for the good to fall on

And all across the weekend he'll make you aware

That come monday moring you're a friend of billy bear



Is there a woman indoors or a child in disguise

Or a dog that's not sized his boot soles

Is there a board that's never felt his terrible tread

Or a window never shook by billy bear



Is there a mother of a son not worried when he comes

Busrting through his clothes like a sunset

Or some poor forgotten burn whose life not overturned

By the freewheeling tow of billy bear



Is there a wolf in the house

Or a scapegoat or a man who's never scared

Is there anyone that can show me a photograph

Is there a friend of billy bear
