Bill Lee is a Warren Zevon song from the Bad Luck Streak in Dancing School album from 1980.

The subject of the song is Boston Red Sox/Montreal Expos pitcher Bill "Spaceman" Lee, who played baseball from 1969-1982, who was known for his outspoken nature and counterculture involvement.

The song is a brief narrative from the point of view of Mr. Lee about the banality and duplicitous nature of baseball dugout culture, but also his passion for the game and winning. The final section of the song makes reference to Bill Lee's outspokedness through the lyric "and sometimes I say things I shouldn't. Like ...", followed by a harmonica riff in the place of a voice, leaving the content to the listener's imagination.
