Advent Calendar: Day 5



The Night Watch Song
(To the Tune of Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)

Dog treats baking in the oven there,
Annoying cats scratching at your nose,
Humans are sitting ‘round in some chairs
And upset that I just licked their toes.

Everybody knows a guard dog knows just where to go
To watch o’er the house at night.
Stupid cats with their eyes all aglow,
Will find it hard to sneak tonight.

They know that Lucky’s on the job;
I’m walking room to room with safety on my mind.
And though my humans are sometimes big slobs,
I will protect them because I’m really kind.

And so I'm offering some advice,
To humans who aren’t even mine,
Be good to your dogs; give them treats that are nice,
A simple gift of bacon is fine.

Watch Dog on Duty
