Oh barking dog, what do you see
Around the corner, out of the sight of me
A branch that’s waving, maybe so
I’m never quite sure if you even know.
Perhaps a shadow on the wall
Whatever it is, it’s really quite tall.
A monster in your mind, I’m sure
Though you bark and bark, your thoughts are pure.
Protect me from come what may
Oh barking dog with plenty to say
I really wish that you’d be still,
Out of sight, out of mind, until –
Oh barking dog…what do you see?!
