'Three old dogs'


‘Three dogs out for the day’

His old heart is past it’s prime
Gentle exercise the doctor suggests
So three old dogs go for a stroll

Three old dogs out for a walk
To get their old tickers going
Stopping to rest on a grassy knoll

Out of breath; legs all wobbly
Weary bones, completely knackered
Backs, once straight, are now bent

On and on they go, homeward bound
Stopping again on the way back
A seat on a grassy knoll, heaven sent

The oldest dog of all home to the wife
The nice long walk to lengthen his life
She says there’s life in the old dog yet
