Another First World War Nursery Rhyme

From an old school magazine, The Mortonia.

Little Silly Willy wanted some loot.
What shall we give him? Try the boot.
Let him fight Tommy again and again,
How can he conquer without any brain.
Write, write, what shall I write?
A letter for France to go to-night.
Make, make, what shall I make?
Tommy is fond of a nice plum cake.
Sing, sing, what shall we sing?
Rule Britannia and God Save the King!
Do, do, what shall we do?
Fight and jolly well see it through!
