Willies I have known ...

o/` o/` Beautiful, Beautiful Brown Eyes

"Willie, I love you my darlin' o/`o/`
Love you with all my heart. o/`
Tomorrow we might have been married,
But ramblin' has kept us a-part."

How many of us went to bed listening to Mother Goose?
Wee Willie Winkie
Running through the town,
Upstairs and downstairs
In his nightgown.
Rapping at the windows,
And crying through the lock,
"Are all the children safe in bed?
For now it's eight o'clock".

Wee Willie Winkie is also a short story by Rudyard Kipling.

Little Willie
Willie saw some dynamite,
Couldn't understand it quite;
Curiosity seldom pays:
It rained Willie seven days.

The term willy-nilly originated with the expression, "I will, nill I," and meant ""whether I wish it or whether I do not wish it." Today, willy-nilly is a slang expression meaning "loosely indecisive, irresolute."

And in Australia, a willy-willy is a severe windstorm.

Careless Willie
Willie, with a thirst for gore,
Nailed his sister to the door.
Mother said, with humor quaint:
"Now, Willie dear, don't scratch the paint."
