"Noble Will Yuill", a song preserved in a scrapbook entitled Old Glasgow Street Songs etc, 1850 which is held at the Mitchell Library.
The song was written by William Yuill himself. It celebrates his ability to entertain while downing copious amounts of whisky: an odd boast from a man who had sung at Sunday services in Glasgow Cathedral for fifty years!
