Wie Gott den Hund erschuf

When God had made the earth and sky,
the flowers and the trees,

he then made all the animals and all the
birds and bees.

And when his work was finished,
not one was quite the same.

And so he travelled land and see
and everywhere he went,

a little creature followed him,
until his stregth was spent.

When all were namend upon the earth
and in the sky and sea,

the little creature said, Dear Lord,
there's not one left for me.

The Father smiled and softly said,
I' ve left you to the end,

I' ve turned my own name back to front,
and called you  " D O G "  my friend !
