Dog Named Daisy Mae

I have a dog named
Daisy Mae
Who just loves to
Sleep all day.
   [children put hands to side of head
   as if sleeping]

If I say "Come on
Let's play,"
She looks, then sniffs,
   [children sniff, then turn heads]
And turns away.

But up she jumps on her
Four feet,
When it's time to
Eat, eat, eat.
   [children pretend to eat]

"Chomp, chomp,"
Then a slurp.
Finally a great big
   [children give a big burp]

Sleepy, silly, Daisy Mae
She loves me I am sure.
She's ready with a big wet kiss
   [children stick out tongues as if they are dogs giving a kiss]
When I come through the door.
