Ragtime Puppy Charles

Out in California where the bad cats are
Nothin' there to guide you but the evening star
Roughest toughest pup by far
Is Ragtime Puppy Charles

He got his name a singin' to the kitties when they sleep
Every night up to their beds he'd creep
Trying not to use his teeth
But growlin' soft and low...

He always barks
Ragged music to the kittens
As he parks
Near the place where they're sittin'

With his bud, a pretty good golden
Who is syncopated gaited
What a funny meter
To the barking that's repeated

How they run
When they hear this puppy come
Because the Western cats he gnarls

Know he's a rootin' tootin' high falutin'
Son-of-a-pup from Indiana
Ragtime Puppy
Talk about your puppy
Ragtime Puppy Charles
