Old dogs, war dogs, puppies or strays,
Poetry has power to brighten our days
Dog stories and poems are best read aloud,
To an audience of one or a theater crowd.
ONE MORE DOG
One Dog Is No Trouble And Two Are So Funny
The Third One Is Easy, The Fourth One's A Honey
The Fifth Is Delightful, The Sixth One's A Breeze
You Find You Can Live With A Housefull With Ease
So How 'Bout Another? Would You Really Dare?
They're Really Quite Easy, But Oh Lord, The Hair!
With Dogs On The Sofa And Dogs On The Bed
And Crates In The Kitchen, Its No Bother You Said
They're Really No Trouble, Their Manners Are Great
What's Just One More Dog And One More Little Crate?
The Sofa Is Hairy, The Windows Are Crusty
The Floor Is All Footprints, The Furniture's Dusty
The Housekeeping Suffers But What Do You Care?
Who Minds A Few Nose prints And A Little More Hair?
So Let's Keep A Puppy, You Can Always Find Room
And A Little More Time For The Dust Cloth And Broom
There's Hardly A Limit To The Dogs You Can Add
The Thought Of A Cutback Sure Makes You Feel Sad
Each One Is Special, So Useful, So Funny
The Food Bill Grows Larger, You Owe The Vet Money
Your Folks Never Visit, Few Friends Come To Stay
Except Other Dog Folks Who Live The Same Way
Your Lawn Has Now Died And Our Shrubs Are Dead Too
Your Weekends Are Busy, Your Off With Your Crew
There's Dog Food And Vitamins, Training And Shots
And Entries And Travel And Motels Which Cost Lots
Is It Worth It You Wonder? Are You Caught In A Trap?
Then That Favorite Comes Up And Climbs In Your Lap
His Look Says You're Special And You Know That You Will
Keep All The Critters In Spite Of The Bill
Some Just For Showing And Some Just To Breed
And Some Just For Loving, They All Fill A Need
Winter Is A Hassle But The Dogs Love It True
And They Must Have Their Walks Tho' You Are Numb And Blue
Late Evening Is Awful, You Scream And You Shout
At The Dogs On The Sofa Who Refuse To Go Out
The Dogs And The Dog Shows, The Travel, The Thrills
The Work And The Worry, The Pressure, The Bills
The Whole Thing Seems Worth It, The Dogs Are Your Life
They're Charming And Funny And Offset The Strife
Your Lifestyle Has Changed, Things Just Won't Be The Same
Yes Those Dogs Are Addictive And So's The Dog Game!
