You can’t buy loyalty, they say
I bought it, though, the other day.
You can’t buy friendship, tried and true.
Well, just the same, I bought that too.
I made my bid and on the spot
Bought love and faith and a whole
Lot of happiness; so all in all
The purchase price was pretty small.
I bought a simple, trusting heart
That gave devotion from the start.
If you think these things are not for sale,
Buy a brown-eyed pup with a wagging tail.
