"Your Faithful Friend" composed by Chris Coogan
When you walk down the street I’m always by your feet Together we belong, Together we are strong.
When things don’t go your way I’ll make you want to play I’ll just roll around, and you want feel so down.
You can count on me I’ll be there, you’ll see Time and time again I’m your faithful friend.
I promise to guard you well I’ll use my sense of smell I’ll bark at every sound that scares you for miles around.
When you feel all alone I’ll always welcome you home I’m here to share the day chase all your fear away.
You can count on me… Everybody needs a friend to cuddle now and then.. -copyright 2019 Chris Coogan
