A STUMP FOR A TAIL
You can’t buy loyalty they say, I bought it though,
the other day;
You can’t buy friendship, tried and true, well just the same,
I bought that too.
I made my bid, and on the spot bought love and faith, a whole job lot
So all in all, the purchase price was pretty small.
I bought a single trusting heart, that gave devotion from the start.
If you think these things are not for sale,
Buy a brown-eyed dog
with a stump for a tail.
