Doggie's Tricks

by Mary Mapes Dodge

What's this coming? Baby, hark!
It's the doggie -- hear him bark ---
Bow, wow, wow, wow ---
Don't you frighten Baby now!

Pussy hears him. See her hide,
Now her eyes are open wide:
Meouw, Meouw -- splisss, sptisss!
Oh how angry pussy is!

Go 'way, doggie -- run off, quick;
Moonie cow has found your stick ---
Moo, moo, moo, moo;
Moonie cow is calling you.

Now he's off. He's in the yard,
All the sheep are running hard.
Ba-a, ba-a, ba-a, ba-a!
(What a naughty dog you are!)

Up, old rooster! doggie's coming;
He will catch you -- see him running!
Ech-ka cock-a-doodle doo ---
Go 'way, dog! Who cares for you?

Now he's at the ducks -- O look!
See them waddle to the brook.
Quack! quack! quack! quack!
Doggie cannot drive them back.

Turkey gobbler, chase him now;
Chase him, turkeys! Bow, wow, wow!
Gobble, gobble, gobble, gobble!
Bow, wow, wow -- gobble, gobble!

Sting him, bees! The naughty doggie!
Jump upon him, great big froggie!
Buzz, buzz, gluck, gluck:
Now, old doggie, where 's your pluck?

There, they've bothered you enough ---
And you're sorry, poor old Buff?
Bow, wow, wow, wow,
Come and play with Baby now.
