If I only had a dog that couldn’t eat,
Just sat and begged me for a treat.
While my kids laid starving on the floor,
My dog, that sat, would beg no more.

If I only had a sow that oinked all day,
I’d tell my kids to go out and play.
That sow would fill our stomachs each,
Then I’d use its skin to fill the window’s breach.
