Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Willy the Spider (Scotty MacGregor)
As part of celebrating my Dad's life - I am compiling the lyrics to all the songs he taught and sang to his children and grandchildren. It is interesting to see the "real words" to some of the songs that are so near and dear to my heart. Willy the Spider indeed was an all time favorite. To check my memory, I read through the threads from all the people who posted bits over the past years - thank you!
Below is the version that my family sang and will continue to sing, happily, joyfully, and faithfully.



Willie the Spider – Pop's Version

Little Willy the Spider wouldn't get out of bed.
He yawned the whole morning and scratched on his head.
He had so many legs that it gave him the blues.
All he did the whole morning was put on his shoes.

Oh Willy the spider had too many legs.
He had dozens of shoes neatly hung up on pegs.

He got up one morning while it was still dark,
He tied all his shoes on just for a lark.
He ran down the stairs with a smile on his face,
And CRASH he landed when he tripped on a lace.

Oh, Willy the spider had too many legs.
He had dozens of shoes neatly hung up on pegs.

So, my little friends, here's a lesson for you:
Don't grumble each time that you put on two shoes.
