Canine Conversation

by
 If dogs could speak, O Mademoiselle,
What funny stories they could tell!
For instance, take your little "peke,"
How awkward if the dear could speak!
How sad for you and all of us,
Who round you flutter, flirt and fuss;
Folks think you modest, mild and meek .
.
.
But would they - if Fi-Fi could speak? If dogs could tell, Ah Madame Rose, What secrets could they not disclose! If your pet poodle Angeline Could hint at half of what she's seen, Your reputation would, I fear, As absolutely disappear As would a snowball dropped in hell .
.
.
If Angeline could only tell.
If dogs could speak, how dangerous It would be for a lot of us! At what they see and what they hear They wink an eye and wag an ear.
How fortunate for old and young The darlings have a silent tongue! We love them, but it's just as well For all of us that - dogs can't tell.
