She woke up this morning,
Her dog was on her bed,
Balladeer was somewhere else,
Chasin' somethin' else instead.
Her pooch was sympathetic,
He's always by her side,
He's faithful and devoted
A companion, friend and guide...
Ms. "Deer"...Don't treat your man like a dog!

If you need protection,
If danger's lurking near,
Your mutt would give his life for you,
You'd never have to fear.
But if Balladeer is hangin' round,
Your future may be grim,
Statistics show you 'probly' need
Protection from him,
Ms. "Deer"...Don't treat your man like a dog!

If you treat your fella,
Like he was royalty,
He'll just take you for granted ya know..
Most males of "his" species
Don't exhibit loyality,
They just "Tom-Cat" where-ever they go..

It's hard to find a human male
That's as charming as a pup,
I know some who can speak and fetch
Roll-over and sit up,
Though they can do tricks for you
With charm and dignity
And though they have great intellect
They lack nobility
Ms. "Deer"...Don't treat your man like a dog!

Well you can pamper your puppy,
He'll love ya just the same,
Unless ya got a man like me,
(and Toerag is my name)

I'm the exception to the rule,
I'll never make ya pay,
Not like Balladeer that chases ev'ry bitch that
wags her tail his way.
Ms. "Deer"...Don't treat your man like a dog!

So feed your pooch Purina,
And take him to the vet,
Brush him when he's tangled,
And dry him when he's wet.
But if you want a sweetie,
Who will never let ya down,
Forget about old Balladeer,
Ya oughtta try the pound,
Ms. "Deer"...Don't treat your man like a dog!


(This is a "Toeragged" version on a very old blues song.....seemed quite fitting for my dear friend Balladeer)

Toe, your in fine fettle
And showed well your metal.
But for sure you have roused a bee,
From Balladeer we will wait and see.
Enjoyed the poem.

Neither one of you knows how to behave... It's just not gonna happen... You're both untrainable...
