Dear God Please Send Me Somebody Who'll Care!
I'm Tired Of Running, I'm Sick With Despair.
My Body Is Aching, It's So Racked With Pain,
And Dear God I Pray As I Run In The Rain.
That Someone Will Love Me And Give Me A Home,
A Warm Cozy Bed And A Big Juicy Bone.

My Last Owner Tied Me All Day In The Yard
Sometimes With No Water And God That Was Hard!
So I Chewed My Leash God And I Ran Away
To Rummage In Garbage And Live As A Stray.
But Now God I'm Tired And Hungry And Cold.
And I'm So Afraid That I'll Never Grow Old.

They've Chased Me With Sticks And Hit Me With Stones
While I Run The Streets Just Looking For Bones.
I'm Not Really Bad God, Please Help If You Can,
For I Have Become Just A "Victim Of Man!"
I'm Wormy Dear God And I'm Ridden With Fleas
And All That I Want Is An Owner To Please!

If You Find One For Me God, I'll Try To Be Good
And I Won't Chew Their Shoes, But I'll Do As I Should.
I'll Love Them, Protect Them And Try To Obey
When They Tell Me To Sit, To Lie Down Or To Stay.
I Don't Think I'll Make It Too Long On My Own,
Cause I'm Getting So Weak And I'm So All Alone.

Each Night As I Sleep In The Bushes I Cry
Cause I'm So Afraid God, That I'm Gonna Die!
And I've Got So Much Love And Devotion To Give,
That I Should Be Given A New Chance To Live.
So Dear God Please, Please Answer My Prayer
And Send Me Somebody Who Will Really Care...

That Is, Dear God, If You're Really There.
