        Miss Riley had a dog
        she used to keep it in her back yard
        And when the dog began to bark
        all the neighbors began to shout
        Then came a stormy night
        Miss Riley let her dog out
        And when the neighbors found him round
        they put a gun down his mouth and shot him down
        and he went -

        Ooohhh wow, bow wow
        Ooohhh wow, bow wow

        Miss Murphy had a cat
        on her lap it sat
        And once in a great big while
        it looked like that Cheshire Cat did smile
        But often it used to chase
        anything that crossed its face
        But one day it got so hot
        that Cheshire Cat had a blood clot
        and she said -

        Ooohhh meow, me meow
        Ooohhh meow, me meow

        Meow

        Then the dog met the cat
        the dog was hot and the cat was wet
        Then in came some sweaty dude
        he put a board between the two
        Then they couldn't get at it
        got frustrated all about it
        So they did the only thing you could do
        they took the dude's sweat and shot it up between the two
        and they said -

        Ooohhh wow, bow wow
        Ooohhh wow, bow, meow, wow
