COUPLE OF STRAYS –2013
Carlene Thissen and Barbara Meyers

VERSE 1:

He’d like to work but his mind goes blank
So our sign just says, “Please help us, thanks.”
His tattered life is filled with patches
Old battle scars, and a few new scratches

CHORUS:

- We're just a couple of strays
- On the sidewalk every day
There’s a shelter but I can't go
He won’t leave me here alone
Someone drops a dollar in our pail
He nods his thanks, I wag my tail

VERSE 2:

I nudge him up when it’s time to eat
And we head for the dumpster at the café down the street
Everything we own – is stuffed in our cart
My favorite bone, his purple heart.

CHORUS:

- We're just a couple of strays
- On the sidewalk every day
There’s a shelter but I can't go
He won’t leave me here alone
Someone drops a dollar in our pail
He nods his thanks, I wag my tail

BRIDGE:

We sleep in the alley, huddled close
Last year I swear, we almost froze
- Sometimes at night he wakes up and screams
Someday I’ll bite what’s in his dreams

CHORUS:

- We're just a couple of strays
- On the sidewalk every day
There’s a shelter but I can't go
He won’t leave me here alone
Someone drops a dollar in our pail
He nods his thanks, I wag my tail

Someone drops a dollar in our pail
He nods his thanks, I wag my tail
