It's time to go and I feel so free.
There's a place out there for Mike and me;
Where the sun shines bright and the wind don't blow.
"Follow me," Mike says, "now it's time to go."
Without a question I'll grab my things,
With no care of what tomorrow brings.
'Cause Mike knows best and I don't know.
"Follow me," Mike says, "now it's time to go."

We have been to places far and wide.
Mike has always been there by my side.
With laughter, love and time to spend.
"Follow me," Mike says, we have life to tend."
A couple of fools with far off dreams
And nothing more, that's how it seems.
But we're rich with life's sweet dividend.
"Follow me," Mike says, "we have life to tend."

Since the day we met it's been this way;
There's an urgent call, we can't delay.
We've got things to do, it's an endless race.
"Follow me," Mike says, and he sets the pace.
But at night we'll rest and I'll brush his hair,
And he'll give me kisses everywhere.
Tomorrow's fancies again we'll chase.
"Follow me," Mike says, and he sets the pace.

Mike will never ask for much you see.
All he really wants is love from me,
And a little food in his favorite bowl.
"Follow me," Mike says, "it's good for your soul."
Then he'll wag his tail, point his little nose,
I'll just tag along everywhere he goes.
We'll cross life's bridge and pay the toll.
"Follow me," Mike says, "it's good for your soul."

I'm just a boy and he's my best friend.
With laughter, love and time to spend.
Been together since our first hello.
"Follow me," Mike says, "now it's time to go."

    Actually by best friend is named Mike, we take turns leading and following, like a couple of ducks trying to form a row. Great piece, Robert.

    this is REALLY sweet. At first was thinking it was a small child (Mike was) and then halfway through got the idea it was a pet. Really nice one.
