They're at me all the day,
There's not an hour between!
I have no time for play—
I think they're very mean.
For every minute's taken up in being gotten clean.

They wash and clean and scrub,
Although I've clothes to wear;
All day they comb and rub,
And brush my teeth and hair.
At five o'clock I have a bath while grown folks come and stare.

Now, Pete! Don't leave this spot
Until I've gotten through.
The things that hurt a lot
Are what is best for you—
I guess what's good for baby boys is good for doggies too.
