Please send me somebody who’ll care
I’m tired of running, I’m sick with despair,
My body is aching, it’s so wracked with pain –
Dear God – I pray – as I run in the rain,
That someone will love me and give me a home,
A warm, cozy bed and a big juicy bone.
My last owner tied me all day in the yard –
Sometimes without water – and God that was hard!
So I chewed through my leash God – I ran away –
To rummage in garbage and live as a stray!
But now God, I’m tired and hungry and cold,
I’m so afraid I’ll never grow old.
They’ve chased me with sticks and hit me with stones –
While I run through the streets, looking for bones.
I’m not really bad, God please help if you can –
For I have become just a “ victim of man “!
I’m wormy God, and riddled with fleas –
And all I want is an owner to please!
If you find one for me God – I’ll try to be good.
I won’t chew on their shoes, I’ll do as I should.
I’ll love them, protect them and try to obey –
When they tell me to sit, or lie down or stay.
I don’t think I’ll make it too long on my own –
‘Cause I’m getting so weak and I’m so all alone.
Each night as I sleep in the bushes I cry-
‘Cause I’m so afraid God, that I’m going to die!
I’ve got so much love and devotion to give –
I should be given a new chance to live!
So, please God, answer my prayer –
And send me someone who will really care!
That is, dear God, if you’re really there…
