My name is Shakespeare William
I owned a feather quill, I am
The writer most familiar to you

My way with words amazes me
Came up with so many phrases, me
But still the number dazes me too

Oh, you gotta be cruel to be kind
If truth were known, love is blind
Yeah, each of these quotes you will find
It's what I do

Seen better days
(That's one of his)
Our salad days
(He is the biz)
All the world's a stage
They call me Billy Whizz

May seem kinda scary
I'm a walking dictionary
Sturdy with the wordy, Shakespeare

Quality of mercy is not strained
Such stuff as dreamed are made
Off with his head
My phrases you'll note

This is the long and short of it
Brevity is the soul of wit
A good luck would have it
You can quote

Oh you suffer green-eyed jealousy
Please do not stand on ceremony
I wrote the Queen's English
The Queen's English I wrote

It's Greek to me
(That's a Shakespeare line)
Meal and drink to me
(He was the first to combine)
Infinite variety
Yeah that was one of mine

Don't call me flakey
I'm William Shakey
Not lazy with the phrasey, Shakespeare

I was the greatest, I was ace
To find a better writer, that's a wild goose chase
I was truly brilliant which is why I sing
You can't have too much of a good thing

If music be the food of love- play on

Et tu Brute
(Did you ever know?)
Forever and a day
(From a Shakespeare show)
Good riddance, fair play
Pure as the driven snow

High time, lie low
Wherefore art thou Romeo?
The nation's favourite bard, Shakespeare

Doo-be-doo-be-doo-be
To be or not to be
Shoo-be-doo-be-doo-be, Shakespeare
