Do you know any songs that are older than you are? "Won't you come home, Bill Bailey, won't you come home?" she moans the whole night long. "I'll do the cooking, honey, I'll pay the rent. I know I've done you wrong. Remember that rainy evening? I threw you out with nothing but a fine-tooth comb. I know I'm to blame. Ain't that a shame? Bill Bailey, won't you please come home." That was written around 1900. There's the patriotic songs -- The Battle Hymn of the Republic, The National Anthem, America, etc. And church songs, like Onward Christian Soldiers. But I think Bill Bailey is the oldest pop song I know all the words to.
