A Man Named Bill
In a little valley by a bracken covered hill
Stand a white washed cottage by a rippling rill
The owner of this cottage is a batchelor named Bill
And his only true companion is his border collie Jill.
His father was a soldier who died fighting in the war
And his mother got run over by a speeding motor car
And his only living relative his younger sister May
Lives in a distant Country many miles away.
But Bill is no ordinary man he's won himself a name
And thoughout the hills and way beyond his is a widespread fame
He's risked his life for others how more noble can one be?
And he's been decorated by the courts for acts of bravery.
He has risked great danger where others might refrain
He once pulled a boy to safety from before a speeding train
And found the little girl who got lost among the hills
A mighty and a brave man is this humble man named Bill.
