  Will's Lyrics

W is all the time making up songs and singing, but I have had a problem getting any record of them. Until today. He was happy to sing the songs for the camera. So happy indeed, when I would ask him if a song was done he would immediately say, "yes, and I have another". I have over eight minutes of video, which shouldn't be a problem to upload in this century, but it's definitely a problem from my house. It would probably take over a week. Until I get around to splitting up the video into separate songs, I took the time to record the lyrics. Because I might never get around to uploading the video, you know how these things go. Or maybe just one song, we'll see how much patience I have. Anyway, here are Will's songs. Do you think he likes New York much?
