joe lyrics – tina charles

when my daddy came home
with a bundle under his cloth
and when he opened it up
i felt a lump down in my throat
it was a little puppy from shivering in the snow
i said daddy, daddy
please call the puppy joe

daddy daddy, please call the puppy joe
i’ll do anything, but please don’t make him go
daddy, daddy please i love him so
because he’s not very big
and it’s so cold out in the snow

after a year or so
there was a dog show in town
well, i gave joe a wash
put on a fancy collar i had found
and when the dog down the road won first price
i didn’t care
to me joe was the champ
there wasn’t any other dog there

repeat

years rolled on
then dad said, i know it’s a pity
but i got a new job
and you can’t keep a dog in the city
i said, daddy , daddy, i got to take joe
there was a tear in his eye as he said no

daddy, daddy, please, i’ve got to take joe
i’ll do anything please don’t make him go
daddy, daddy, please, i love him so
because he’s not very big
and it’s so cold out in the snow

well, we found joe a home
but i knew he wouldn’t settle down
and it wouldn’t be long
before joe was heading to town
but joe was so old
and the city was such a long way
i guess he stopped for a rest
and he is still resting today
