I had a little doggie that used to sit and beg,
But Doggie tumbled down the stairs and broke his little leg; Oh,
Doggie, I will nurse you, and try to make you well; And you shall
have a collar with a pretty little bell. Ah, Doggie, don't you
think that you should very faithful be, For having such a loving
friend to comfort you as me?
And when your leg is better, and you shall run and play, We'll
have a scamper in the field, and see them making hay. But, Doggie,
you must promise (and mind your word you keep) Not once to tease
the little lambs or run among the sheep. And then the yellow "chicks"
that play upon the grass, You must not even wag your tail to scare
them as you pass.
