When God had made the earth and sky
The flowers and the trees
He then made all the animals
And all the birds and bees
And when his work was finished
He said “I’ll walk this earth of mine
And give each one a name”
And so He travelled land and sea
And everywhere He went
A little creature followed Him
until its strength was spent.
When all were named upon the earth
and in the sky and sea,
The little creature said “Dear Lord”,
There is not one left for me”.
The Heavenly Father smiled and said
I’ve left you to the end.
I’ve turned my own name back to front
And called you “DOG”, my friend”.
