Winnie's second Christmas carol

What? Who? Me?

Actually, that headline is ALL WRONG! Today's carol with new words is ALL the work of the Lady Of The House. Feel free to tell her it's rubbish.

(Sing to the tune of While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks By Night)

Oh, Winnie get some socks tonight
You've dug another crater
The house is full of grass and mud
I'll have to clean up later.

Long greyhound toes trap so much dirt
You've brought in half the garden
You never seem to look ashamed
Or say "I beg your pardon".

If Santa brought some Greyhound boots
The floors would stay much cleaner
And when I saw you digging
I would be a little keener.


I wonder if you want to get
To sunny warm Australia?
I don't think you can dig that far
I think you're doomed to failure.

I'd miss you if you went to Oz
I hope that you're not going
The good thing is that thanks to you
The lawn does not need mowing.

("That's because we have no lawn any more, really" - the LOTH)

Yes, yes. We get it. Fine.

Changing the subject, we have had a few requests for "Silent Night" so we are going to work on that next. 

Actually, I WILL. Because the LOTH is clearly not in the proper Christmas spirit.

Ah, Winnie, do you tink her is tryin' to tell you sometin? Jus tell her you is practicin' your gardening skills because you're goin' to plant her some flowers!

Winnie, I am indignant! My mom is laughing like mad and she says that those could be MY feet in the picture. Hmph! Just because I want to see China doesn't mean people should mock me!

You take requests? Would "Do You Hear What I Hear" be a possibility?


Pup Fan said...

LOL - I lost it at the last verse. Hilarious!

Hiking Hounds said...

That was great. Winnie sure is a digger. Poor lawn, but she's so happy. :-)

Oh my goodness, Winnie. You have to be the best Greyhound digger in the world.

Thanks for the Christmas carol! Those are some mighty impressive holes in the yard. Oh what fun it is to dig a diggy hole today!

An impressive hole you've dug, my friend!!

Sue said...

Sure glad Song isn't a digger.

Looking forward to Silent Night.

Bouncing Bertie said...

Absolutely lovely. Although those Down Under may not appreciate the rhyme of Australia with failure!

Looking forward to Silent Night,

Cheers, Gail and Bertie.

Wow, I think LOTH did a wonderful job! I know you're not thrilled with the subject, but it was a great ditty anyway. BOL
