I Want a Puppy

My name is Tricia – call me Trish –
And I’m a girl with just one wish:
I want a pet but not just any;
There’s only one for all my money:

I don’t want a mouse, and I don’t want a cat;
I don’t want a parrot, always asking for a snack;
I don’t want a guinea pig, and I don’t want a guppy –
I want a puppy!

I don’t want a hamster, and I don’t want a mule;
I don’t want a little lamb that follows me to school.
I don’t even care if he licks me till I’m sloppy –
I want a puppy!

I want a puppy oh so bad;
It’s all my heart desires.
Just this one favor, Mom and Dad,
And then I will retire.

I don’t want a hippo, and I don’t want a horse;
I don’t want a bunny or an elephant, of course.
There’s only one thing that I want
That’ll make me happy –
I want a puppy!
I want a puppy!

Oh, I don’t want a mouse, and I don’t want a cat;
I don’t want a parrot, always asking for a snack.
I don’t want a guinea pig, and I don’t want a guppy –
I want a puppy!
I want a puppy!
I want it! I want it! 
I want a puppy!
