Ole Billy Penn On Top Of City Hallwp
 
In Philly fair city
Where the girls. are so pretty
I first set my eyes on Ole Billy Penn
He stood on his pedestal
So cool and so bold
He was 37 feet tall
So I was told
He gazed to the north
Beneath him “The Declaration
Of Independence” was brought forth
And the “Constitution” was born
On a bright September morn
And secured the blessings of Liberty
To ourselves and our posterity
The “Liberty Bell” pealed to the sky
And “Betsy Ross” unfurled her flag on high
And the voice of freedom
was heard in the land
And it happened in Philly fair city
Where the girls are so pretty
And where I first set my eyes on Ole Billy Penn
