Most folks think that a Bassett Hound
does nothing but lie around.
But I'm here to tell you
that's not true!

For when he is sleeping,
its really adventure he's seeking.
Why, he's a hero, he deems,
but only in his dreams!

While sleeping if you see his back legs in a jerk
and his ears start to perk,
that's when he's a cowboy,
riding Trigger into the sunset just like Roy!

Don't look at his face in despair.
Hidden away there's an adventurer there.
Lying around sleeping is just a ploy ...
in his favorite dreams he's a true western cowboy!

He's not a wuss or a kitty,
he's just like Walter Mitty.
He would never let you know ...
but in his dreams, he rides with Columbo!!

Yes sir, a Bassett Hound
does lie around
But that ole dog knows no tension or strife
for in his dreams, "He's got a life"!!
