  • Song Lyrics:
    There once was a can of Play-Doh
    On a lonely toy store shelf
    A pair of hands bought it, intending to make
    A new friend for himself

    Then Mr. Hands made him
    With great care and skill
    And if you would like to meet his friend
    Ask for Mr. Bill

    He's Mr. Bill
    On the Saturday Night Live show
    You'll see him there
    The Play-Doh man they love to scare
    Mutilating him at will
    They call him Mr. Bill

    He's Mr. Bill
    He has a friend named Sluggo
    Sluggo tries to do him harm
    Breaking off a leg or arm
    But he could never kill
    Courageous Mr. Bill

    Mr. Bill has a dog named Spot
    Mr. Bill loves that dog a lot
    But Spot gets shot
    And Mr. Hands never gets caught

    He's Mr. Bill
    He goes bowling and fishing
    Then they shake him up
    Twist him up and break him up
    But he perseveres still
    That's our Mr. Bill
    Don't hurt Mr. Bill
    Don't hurt Mr. Bill
