Little puppy
in the flowers
where you like to play for hours
chasing lady bugs
digging snails and slugs
till it’s time to go to bed at night.

Little puppy
in the sweet peas
contemplating all the birds and bees.
But when you try to play
they all fly away
but you try anyway, until it’s night.

Little puppy
in the shrubbery
digging tubers fat and rubbery.
Napping in the shade
like you got it made
till it’s time to go to bed at night.

Little puppy
on the sidewalk
waiting for someone to come by and talk.
You tell them it’s all good
this is your neighborhood
you’ll keep it safe while they’re asleep at night.

Little puppy
likes to go for rides
hangs her head out on the driver’s side
cranks up the radio
everywhere we go
until the wind blows us home at night.

Little puppy
wants artillery
’cause she never knows where the cat will be.
All creatures God begat
but oh God why the cat
he stalks me even in my bed at night.

Little puppy
likes to watch TV
being anybody that she wants to be
wishing all the men
were more like Rin Tin Tin
bet you’ll dream of him in bed tonight.

Little Pixie
so pretty
you’re the reason why I wrote this ditty.
Now I’ve got to say
there’s no more time to play
please put your toys away
and go to bed.
