Shags Has Hung Himself
Without fail from dawn to dusk
At our house every day
At least a hundred neighbour kids
Would come around to play
Then one morning in place of Chris
His mother came instead
She looked at me with saddened eyes
and this is what she said.....
Christopher won't come to play today
Shags, poor Shags has hung himself
Short wall, long chain
That dog won't see the sun again
Oh Shags, poor Shags has hung himself.
