The Ballad of Angus and Little Joey


The Ballad of Angus and Little Joey


Verse 1

A dog named Angus and a toy named Little Joey

Toy from distant lands becomes a puppy’s kidnapee

What do you ask of life that isn’t there?

You seem so satisfied Just breathing air


Verse 2

Hey there little one, put down Little Joey

Fetch a leash and then, take a walk with me

Miles from everyone, just let us be

People’s opinions, behind me


Verse 3

Hey politicians, won’t you listen to me?

Democrats Republicans, Disband both parties

Would it do any good, maybe?

Yes only if we could, maybe.
