Cause Billy can read, yeah Billy can read And 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 They're as funny as they can be Now that Billy can read. Yeah his life is much better you see now that Billy can read. About Billy Can't Read. Billy Can’t Read is a great song, but only reached on the country charts. This song deals with illiteracy

The ultimate New Traditionalist factory songwriter, Overstreet's best work is the series of hits he wrote (usually with Don Shlitz) for Randy Travis in the 1980s. On his own, as evidenced by this collection, he's a bit too obsessed with convincing everybody that he's a good Christian man who just can't wait to get home to his wife. There's more to life - and music - than family values, no matter how you define them.
