I’ve been down in the park, with stick and ball,

With my friends it’s a canine free-for-all,

But now I am dog tired!

We love to jump and fly about,

But I always come back when I hear Karen shout,

By then, I’ll be dog tired!

I’ll run and run till I’m fit to burst,

And I’ll have developed a raging thirst,

And be just a little dog tired!

I may be small but I’m energy-packed,

And I’ll keep going until I’m whacked,

Yes, just completely dog tired!
