My time to walk is always the same,
I walk with my Mama, cause Daddy is lame.
For months and months, it was 6:15
no earlier no later, or so it would seem.
the past 3 days, I have to wait.
And wait and wait and wait.
I woo and I woo and bark real loud,
She just sits there unmoving like her head is in a cloud.
On Saturday morning, Mama went to the store,
Daddy took over, and walked in the dark, and I back wanting more.
He left at 6 am, it was still dark,
I thought oh boy, this will be a lark.
Sunday morning at 6 am,
I said to Mama, lets walk early just like him.
She said, Beau you know mama doesn't walk in the dark,
and it doesn't matter how much you bark.
You see the reason is the bats are there,
they fly and zoom and try to sit in my hair.
The bats don't bother me, I don't even know they are there,
they don't seem to notice all MY hair.
If you were here, would you walk me in the dark?
Or would you sit in the chair and let me bark?
Would you watch me pace pace
and beg with my face?
Or would you cave,
and become my slave?
Would you give in and let me have my way,
or would you wait for the sun and at home we stay?
