Lyrics of Billy Can't Read

His momma and his daddy were very poor and they never went to school
Billy followed in their footsteps like a lot of children do
He had to get a job to help pay the bills so his younger brother Ben
Might go to school to learn to read and write
Then maybe he can teach all of them
But Billy can't read no billy can't read
But he gives two hundred percent, of the minimum wage that he receives
Sometimes he pretends like he can as he looks
And he laughs at the pictures in the funny books
But it really ain't funny you see that Billy can't read
Then the bossman came around and talked to Billy one day
He says now Billy you're the hardest worker I've got and you sure deserve more pay
But the boss at the top says I have to give every foreman a written test
Billy hung his head 'cos he knew right then
He'd always have to settle for less
'Cos Billy can't read no Billy can't read
But he gives two hundred percent, of the minimum wage that he receives
Sometimes he pretends like he can as he looks
And he laughs at the pictures in the funny books
But it really ain't funny you see that Billy can't read
Little Ben never took for granted all his brother Billy sacrificed
Every night while the family slept
They would sit up late by that old lamplight
Soundin' out the A's and the E's and the I's and the O's and the U's
Now he's reading everything from the cereal box
To the bible three times through
'Cos Billy can read yeah Billy can read
Now the rest of his life will be different because of the special gift he received
Now he don't have to act like he's laughing as he looks
At the silly pictures in those funny books
There as funny as they can be now that Billy can read
Yeah his life is much better you see now that Billy can read
