When God had made the earth and sky
the flowers and the trees,
He then made all the animals
the fish, the birds and bees.
When all were named upon the earth
and in the sky and sea,
the little creature said, "Dear Lord,
there's not one left for me."
And when at last He'd finished
not one was quite the same.
He said, "I'll walk this world of mine
and give each one a name."
Kindly the Father said to him,
I've left you to the end.
I've turned my own name back to front
and called you DOG, My friend."
