A brand new “Song Of the Week” … this is for William V. Hogsed, we just knew him as “Bill” …a very sweet man.
Here’s the lyrics:
Bill Get’s Up
‘Ole Bill gets up – Then Bill gets down – His juice is fresh – His toast is brown – He brings the bats a telescope – He brings the bunnies a jump-rope – He brings a whistle for the birds – ‘Cause they don’t know the words – He teaches them to play – But he can’t stay awake – So Bill gets up – And Bill gets down – His suit is pressed – His toast is brown – He brings the snake a pair of boots – For butterflies he brings parachutes – He brings the bears some books to read – It isn’t what they need – The hour’s getting late – They’ve got to hibernate – He brings his things to everyone – They don’t need things – But things are fun – He brings the bugs some kites to fly – They don’t know how or why – But Bill still helps them try – He’s just that kind of guy – And Bill gets up – Then Bill gets down – His juice is fresh – His toast is brown
that is just a beautiful song.
I seriously underestimated how long this song would get stuck in my head…
