If dogs could
If dogs could talk, what would they say?
I wonder, I wonder, what would they say?
“Please to meet you on this fine day,
Would you like to come outside and play?
I would like a big run and a toy I can chew,
A soft bed to sleep on when playtime is through,
Somebody to love me, who I can love too,
It’s really not much that I ask of you”.
If dogs could walk like me and you,
I wonder, I wonder, what would they do?
“I would walk out the door when I wanted too,
Or have picnics in parks with people I knew,
I would skip in the sunshine; I would run in the rain,
Then when I wake up, I would do it again!
Happily strolling down lane after lane,
The weathers no bother, sunshine or rain”.
If dogs could drive, where would they go?
I wonder, I wonder, where would they go?
“To beaches, mountains and rivers you know,
Where I can run free, these places I would go,
I would swim in the rivers, in the fields I would run,
Then drive back to my home when daytime is done,
Back safe in the arms of my daddy and mum,
Oh if I could drive, I would have so much fun!”
If dogs could cook, what would they eat?
I wonder, I wonder, what would they eat?
“Steaming potatoes and big juicy meat,
Sausages, burgers, oh what a treat!
I would cook up some fish; I would boil up some rice,
Make curries with chicken, pork chops and spice,
I would throw in some vegetables, all diced up and sliced,
Oh if only I could cook! It would be so nice!”
Do you have a dog? Because if you do,
Treat them kindly with love; don’t be nasty or cruel,
Hug them every day, till night time is through,
Because dogs too have feelings…
Just like me and you.
