Rocky the Dog

from the album

Rocky in the morning at his hardware store
sweeps the floor
opens the door
and then sweeps some more

He is moving slower than his cat-chasing years
there’s a droop to his ears
but he still hears
the mailman as he nears

Rocky the dog
Rocky the dog

Rocky in the afternoon takin break
grills a steak
helps himself to some cake
then walks round the lake

Rocky in the evening has to close up shop
gets out the mop
cleans from bottom to top
then drinks a soda pop

Rocky the dog
