Go Where I send thee

This is a request from Miss Patience, servant to the whippet. It is a favorite for our muzzer too, who loved Peter Paul and Mary and all of their songs.

This is a version of an old Spiritual, and all lines repeat throughout. Sort of like the Twelve Days of Christmas, ya know.

Here is the Gussie Version for 2009

Doggies go where I send thee:
how shall I send thee?
Well, I'm gonna send thee one by one
One for the little bitty baby
Who was born, born, born in Bethlehem

Said he was born, born, born in Bethlehem

Doggies go where I send thee: how shall I send thee?
Hey, I'm gonna send thee two by two
Two for Jake and Fergie
One for the itty bitty baby
Who was born, born, born in Bethlehem.

Doggies go where I send thee: how shall I send thee?
I'm gonna send thee three by three, three for Wally and the crazy Beans
Two for Jake and Fergie
One for the itty bitty baby
Who was born, born, born in Bethlethem.

Doggies go where I send thee: how shall I send thee?
I'm gonna send thee Four by Four, four for the the Dughallmore Beagles,
Three for Wally and the crazy Beans
Two for Jake and Fergie
One for the itty bitty baby
Who was born, born, born in Bethlethem.

Doggies go where I send thee: how shall I send thee?
I'm gonna send thee five by five, five for the Brat Pack kiddies
Four for the the Dughallmore Beagles,
Three for Wally and the crazy Beans
Two for Jake and Fergie
One for the itty bitty baby
Who was born, born, born in Bethlethem.

Doggies go where I send thee: how shall I send thee?
I'm gonna send thee six by six, six for Bogie who loves his sticks
Five for the Brat Pack kiddies
Four for the the Dughallmore Beagles,
Three for Wally and the crazy Beans
Two for Jake and Fergie
One for the itty bitty baby
Who was born, born, born in Bethlethem.

Doggies go where I send thee: how shall I send thee?
I'm gonna send thee seven by seven, seven for treats at 3 and eleven
Six for Bogie who loves his sticks
Five for the Brat Pack kiddies
Four for the the Dughallmore Beagles,
Three for Wally and the crazy Beans
Two for Jake and Fergie
One for the itty bitty baby
Who was born, born, born in Bethlethem.

Doggies go where I send thee: how shall I send thee?
I'm gonna send thee eight by eight, eight for the doggies who wait at the gate
Seven for treats at 3 and eleven
Six for Bogie who loves his sticks
Five for the Brat Pack kiddies
Four for the the Dughallmore Beagles,
Three for Wally and the crazy Beans
Two for Jake and Fergie
One for the itty bitty baby
Who was born, born, born in Bethlethem.

Doggies go where I send thee: how shall I send thee?
I'm gonna send thee nine by nine, nine for the whippets dressed so fine
Eight for the doggies who wait at the gate
Seven for treats at 3 and eleven
Six for Bogie who loves his sticks
Five for the Brat Pack kiddies
Four for the the Dughallmore Beagles,
Three for Wally and the crazy Beans
Two for Jake and Fergie
One for the itty bitty baby
Who was born, born, born in Bethlethem.

Doggies go where I send thee: how shall I send thee?
I'm gonna send thee ten by ten, ten for the ten commandments
Nine for the whippets dressed so fine
Eight for the doggies who wait at the gate
Seven for treats at 3 and eleven
Six for Bogie who loves his sticks
Five for the Brat Pack kiddies
Four for the the Dughallmore Beagles,
Three for Wally and the crazy Beans
Two for Jake and Fergie
One for the itty bitty baby
Who was born, born, born in Bethlethem.
E A B7

He was born, born, born

E B7 E

born in Bethlehem.

You had us tapping our paws by the end ... specially when we got Tennessee Ernie Ford leading the song in the background at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VwqWcn2gbTM

We're flattered! It's an honor to have a part in this spiritual song. We hope we can uphold its honor. We'll try to go where we're told, even though we're not always the best at doin' so!

Just pleeze don't ask us to do the math to figure just how many went on the journey by the end of the song. We can't count that high!

Love ya
Jake and Fergi
