Poor Dog Bright


Lyrics

1. Poor dog Bright
Ran off with all his might
Because the cat was after him,
Poor dog Bright!

2. Poor cat Fright
Ran off with all her might
Because the dog was after her,
Poor cat Fright!


Alternate version


Lyrics

1. A, B, C, tumbledown D,
The cat is in the cupboard and can’t see me.

2. Poor dog Bright ran off with all his might
Because the cat was after him, Poor dog Bright!

3. Poor cat Fright ran off with all her might
Because the dog was after her, Poor cat Fright!
