The dog was happy and homeward bound.
He held in his mouth a bone he had found.
And as he traveled he crossed a brook.
In the cool, clear water he took a look.
He saw his reflection and started to whine,
"That dog has a nicer bone than mine."
And as he grabbed for the other bone,
He opened his mouth and lost his own.
And as you know, in the world today,
There are quite a few people who act the same way.
They would be better off to chew their own
And let other people's bones alone.
