ALAS! POOR FIDO!
By Jim Manee
Oh where, oh where has my little dog
That song made a hit in its dayft
With his tail cut short and his ear
There's many a dog passed away.
Now the secret is out and it's going
You hear it all over the street.
The dear little pup is much cut up, !
, And now he is selling for meat. '
P. S. If you ever bite into a piece
of leather, that's Fido's muzzle.
