When God had made the earth and the sky

The flowers and the trees,

He made all the animals

And all the birds and bees.

And when his work was finished

Not was quite the same,

He said : I will walk this earth of mine

And give each a name.

And so he travelled land and sea

And everywhere he went

A little creature followed Him

Until his strenght was spent.

When all were named upon the earth

All in the sky and sea,

The little creature said : Dear God

There's not one left for me.

The Father smiled and softly said :

I've left you to the end

I've turned my own name back to front

And called you Dog my friend.
