stay away from bill lyrics – diane schuur

“[karrin allyson]
if you want a man you can love
and be his one and only

[deedles schuur]
if you want a man who will be there
and always will

k: if this is who you’re looking for
d: the prince who’s going to show up
at your door

both: whatever you do,
stay away from bill

[h*rn & piano interlude]

d: stay away from bill, he’s a beast
and you’ll always be lonely

k: he won’t ever call, and he’ll run
when he’s had his fill

d: he’ll put you on a pedestal

k: that’s right before he puts you
through the mill

both: whatever you do,
stay away from bill

both: if you’re wonderin’ if there’s any good in him
when it comes to bill, the answer’s no

he’ll lie and deceive you
he’ll love you and leave you
and ohhhhhh…..

d: you’ll be miserable

k: so stay away from bill
’cause he’s bad, and he’s nothin’ but trouble

d: [he’s nothin’ but trouble]

k: stay away from bill

d: [counterpoint] stay away from bill

k: if you do

both: and you’re gonna be fiiiiiiine…..

d: he’ll have you and hurt you
and then he will desert you

k: he’ll shock you and shake you
he’ll rock you and he’ll break you

both: he’ll chill you and thrill you
he’ll kill you, then he’ll bill you

stay–a-way–from–bill
that–boy–is–miiiiiiine

d: that boy is mine

k: no, that boy is mine

d: did you hear me, girlfriend?
that boy is mine

k: i heard you loud and clear
that boy is mine

d: no he’s not, no he’s not

k: [humming]

d: i’ll tell you one more time, girlfriend,
he’s mine

d: [humming]

k: deedles, that boy is mine

d: karryn, that boy is mine

[karryn – scatting]

[deedles – scatting]

k: stay away from bill

d: stay away from bill”
