"Night Herding Song"
Oh say, little dogies, why don't you lay down?
You've wandered and trampled all over the ground.
Lay down, little dogies, lay down.
I have cross-herded, trail-herded, circle-herded too
But to keep you together - that's what I can't do.
My horse is leg-weary, and I'm awful tired
But, if I let you get away, I'm sure to get fired.
Bunch up, little dogies, bunch up.
