Made a beautiful silky bow collar, 
for his little skinny neck 
So we can go for a walk, 
sneaked out the back gate 
walking around to the front 
All the kids were amazed, 
dancing skipping for joy, 
they all wanted a pet duck. 

Thinking to myself, 
make a clean fortune selling ducks, 
around the neighbourhood 
I never laughed so much, 
in fact the sides were splitting, 
the kids actually thought he was funny 
wabbling along with his color bow. 
He was a comical site quacking 

They loved him, 
shouting can we get a pet duck, 
the plan is working I thought 
Squealing with joy and glee 
Then the woman I was with at the time 
Cried and moaned, 
created a whole scene, 
gave out like mad. 

Shouting all the neighbors are chatting 
Yeah chatting about you, 
ha ha I laughed driving her totally insane, 
saying I was mad in the head, 
I didn't really care what they say, 
buying a kid a duck for his birthday 

Poor little duck she's disowning you, 
so you don't want the duck, 
I said to her 
It was all your idea 
in the first place 
sure the young fellow cried for the duck, 

might of known 
I would get blamed, 
someone was giving away ducks 
Just happened to mentions a duck, 
you said ok 
All excited with the kids 

Past tense 
the scorpion who struck 
biting me on the back 
Giving me the bad blood, 
ill give them something to talk about 
The only reason 
the neighbours 
had dogs and cats, 
they bite 

A duck so what, 
poor little creature, 
are they afraid 
to be dabbed to death 
Ended up giving him to my father, 

she panicked afraid of gossip ha ha 
The first in the area to have a pet duck ha 
More than could be said for some 
Sure they copy everyone else, 
I am different 
Do not care what people say 

All the kids loved him, 
a pity about the old dragon 
My father still has him years later 
He is getting old and grey 
Looked after him like royalty 

Following around after him like a dog 
This is the story of my pet 
Now my dad and the duck 
he is the happiest 
duck alive
