My Dog Ben

My Dog Ben

My dog Ben
thought he was a hen

He wasn’t very tough
'cos instead of saying woof

He would sit upon the loo
crying cock-a-doodle-do

And he really was a pest
when the loo he made a nest

So I had to make him stop
but just then I heard two plops

Not believing what I saw
Bottom jaw fell to the floor

My dog Ben
maybe really was a hen

'Cos floating in the bog
not a curly doggy log

But beneath his hairy legs
lay two brown and speckled eggs
