Kids ar maahther'in for a dog tha knows.

Their plagu'in mi't dee'uth abeawt it.
Aahm goo'int at gee um their way.

Aahm not keen on gerr'in one misell.
Tha see's……. aaahv had one afoo'er.
Chew'in aw through't furniture.
Un pee'in aw or't floo'er.

Ikkle be a novelty for a couple er wik.
They'll bi walk'in it abeawt.
Then soon they'll aw bi sick of it.
Ikkle me us'll at takk it eawt.

Dogs are not forr eawses…. Aah don't think.

Dragg'in it's backside alung best rug.
Un scratch'in aw't back doo'er.

Sniff'in other dogs backsides.
Then lick'in thi on't face.
Runn'in in when it's pour'in deawn .
Un stink'in eawt front place.
