Little Bim-bo

Cat. #1259 (MFH #873) - As sung by Ollie Gilbert, Mountain View, Arkansas on October 26, 1971

Bimbo is a little boy
Whose got a million friends
Ever time he passes by
They always invite him in
He clasped his hands, sing an' dance
An' tell his baby talk
With a hole in his pants an' his knees stickin' out
He's just a little boy

Bimbo, Bimbo where 'er ya gonna go
Bimbo, Bimbo what 'er ya gonna do
Bimbo, Bimbo does your Momma know
That you're goin' down th road
See th little girly-o

Bimbo got, two big blue eyes
That lights up like a star
An' th way to light them up
Is to buy him a candy bar
Cracker jacks, bubble gum
Will start his day off right
All the gentle folks
Is boy is for right

You never catch him settin' still
He's just th rovin' kind
Only jest a little boy
He's got a grown up mind
His always got a shaky day
That fillos at his clothes
An' everybody calls to him
As down th road he goes
