William is a hammer man

doesn’t talk much some don’t think he can

he is kind of quiet and shy

if he speaks at all he’ll just says hi.


He likes to paint and draw

but most things are just a bore

when asleep he doesn’t bother snoring

simply because he finds it boring.


Doesn’t eat much just picks like a mite

but when he gets mad, he likes to bite

his sister sometimes makes him reel

then her arm is his favourite meal.


He can be really busy so to speak

being a beaver once a week

toasting marshmallows all gathered around

when they are done, he gobbles them down.


In the morn it’s a school day

Leave me to sleep Bill will say

When the bell rings he gets in line

he’s sat at his desk by quarter to nine


At twenty past three he’s in a good mood

can’t wait to go for his favourite food

cookie dough pie, a cake or a bun

hurry up granddad, come on let’s run.


At night he settles down eating sweets

While watching TV in his favourite seat

Later he’ll go to bed and dream

Of biscuits and cake and his favourite ice-cream.


It’s morning again, Saturday that’s great

stays in bed a little late

then gets to play with his toys

racing cars, he’s one of the boys.
