I had a Little Doggy

I had a little Doggy
that used to sit and beg;
But Doggy tumbled down the stairs
and broke his little leg.

Oh, Doggy, I will nurse you,
and try to make you well,
And you shall have a collar
with a little silver bell.

Ah, Doggy, don't you think
that you should very faithful be
For having such a loving friend
to comfort you as me?

And when your leg is better,
and you can run and play,
We'll have a scamper in the fields
and see them making hay.

But, Doggy, you must promise
(and mind your word you keep)
Not once to tease the little lambs,
or run among the sheep;

And then the little yellow chicks
that play upon the grass,
You must not even wag your tail
to scare them as you pass.

A tail waving birdie
Thought to fly around the world
And wave on his journey

He perched on the snout of a crocodile
And waved until one thirty

A clever little birdie
He stood next to a porcupine

A homesick little birdie
He perched on a Wandering Albatross
And was home by six thirty

A chirpy little birdie
He felt so gala, he sang to a koala
And waved until seven thirty

Then, he went to sleep?.........
