I wag and stretch, just like any other day,
But they turn away, they just don't know what to say,
In the car I look out at the country passing by,
It has to be done they say with unhappy sigh.
Out of the car in a strange place,
They dare not even look at my face,
Then it's into a cage and a signature given,
Out of the gate my people have driven.
I sit down and howl, oh why have they left me?
I don't understand, please come back and get me.
The day it drags on then into another,
Please come back I won't be a bother.
The weeks go by, one two three and four,
My pads they get sore as I claw and claw,
I hang my head because all hope is gone,
It's just no good and I can't go on.........
I lift my nose and heave a big sigh,
I spot a nice lady, she's just dropped by,
A poodle is the only dog it can be,
I bark right out loud, take me take me,
She looks down so kindly my heart it just leaps,
Oh take me home and love me for keeps,
All I want is a lap and a nice juicy bone,
I'll by your dog, please please take me home.
The ending is happy as I'm sure you all know,
My tail's always wagging as I love my folks so.
