He knows me inside out
He greeted me with pleasure
A wagging of his tail
This dog could lift my spirits
He did it without fail

I‘m always looking for him
When he would take his walk
I’d hustle out to meet him
And have a little talk

I’d also greet his owner
I’d nod and give a smile
I’d even have a chat with him
Just for a little while

The big dog’s name is Casey
A Yellow Lab so fine
I might recall his owner’s name
If I thought to take the time

But I was there for Casey
I had to say hello
He was the highlight of my day
It’s sad but it is so

This dog can see right through me
He knows me inside out
He knows all of my secret thoughts
Of that I have no doubt

He knows when I am worried
Or when I am upset
He knows that I’ll be alright
If I just gave him a pet

He lets me know I’m worthy
That life is not so bad
When he comes here to greet me
How could I remain sad?

They say that DOG spelled backwards
Would be a different name
To me there is no difference
They are one and the same
