COME HOME, LITTLE DOGGIE
Dedicated to Dog
(Sung to the tune of "Autumn to May")
Oh, once I knew a little dog,
As scrawny as could be
He got so drunk that late one night
He joined poor Anglesea.
And every day we hear the yell:
"Swordbrother, come to me!"
Now where, oh, where, has doggie gone?
Where could that deadbeat be?
Yell, Hendrick, yell!
Call your doggie home!
Well, once we lost him in the straw
In KinderFodder camp
They would not let us leave that night
Said: "Don't forget that scamp.
The one you buried in the straw
And hoped we would not see
For we have problems of our own
We don't need Anglesea's."
Hide, doggie, hide!
Drag your carcass home!
But worst of all he does corrupt
So many younger boys
A thirteen year old got drunk one night
And Finn said: "What's that noise?
You stupid Dog! What have you done?
Go take him home right now!
For if he stays we will get blamed
And I will tell them how!"
Run, Doggie, run!
Take that poor boy home!
And late one night he was convinced
The trees were closing in
He grabbed poor Ursus by the shirt
And went along with him.
He begged: "Please don't leave me alone!
Stay with me all night!"
The minute Ursus turned his head
Dog was gone from sight.
Hide, Doggie, Hide!
I hope the trees get you!
You know that Doggie thinks that he
Is liked by one and all
He'll say just what you want to hear
And come at right your call.
Unless, of course, his kinsman shouts
Then he's nowhere to be found
And soon as Hendrick leaves the camp
You'll soon see him around.
Why, Doggie, why?
Can't you stay at home?
