lyrics

We were outside
in the street
me and some other kids
kicking the ball
before dinner
and Sky was
chasing chasing chasing
with his feet going
every which way and his tail
wag-wag-wagging
and his mouth
slob-slob-slobbering
and he was all over the place
smiling and wagging
and slobbering
and making
us laugh
and my dad
came walking up the street
he was way down there
near the end
I could see him
after he got of the bus
and he was walk-walk-walking
and I saw him wave
and he called out
"Hey there son!"
and so I didn't see
the car
coming from the other way
until someone else__
one of the big kids__
called out
"Car!"
and I turned around
and I saw a
blue car blue car
spattered with mud
speeding down the road
And I saw Sky
going after the ball
wag-wag-waging
his tail
and I called him
"Sky! Sky!"
and he turned his
head
but it was too late
because the
blue car blue car
spattered with mud
hit Sky
thud thud
and kept on going
in such a hurry
so fast
so many miles to go
it couldn't even stop
and
Sky
was just there
in the road
lying on his side
with his legs bent funny
and his head sideways
and he looked up at me
and I said
"Sky!Sky!Sky!"
and then my dad
was there
and he lifted Sky
out of the road
and laid him on the grass
and
Sky
closed his eyes
and
he
never
opened
them
again

ever.
