Omar Blue - The Papa Sitter

Ma is out

And Papa’s sleeping

He isn’t feeling well.


I’m Papa sitting

Taking good care of him

Napping, but he won’t tell.


I just woke up from a wonderful dream

About K-9 Town, USA

Dogs running and playing

With me in the lead

My dreams always happen that way.


Oh no! I hear Ma

She’s coming upstairs

She’ll catch me

Nothing I can do.


Even if I get up

She’ll know I was up here

May as well stay put

Would you?


I’ll close my eyes

Pretend I’m asleep

She’ll think we’re such a cute sight.


After all I’m on duty

Papa sitting

This is where I should be all night.


Omar Blue get down!

Was the first thing she said

How did she know I was faking.


I was doing my job

Papa had my attention

Though the “off the bed” rule I was breaking


We were about to go out

But here she comes

Carrying my favorite bone


“Omar Blue

I’m proud of you

For not leaving your Papa alone.


I’m taking my bone

Got a real good place

To go handle this special treat.


If you ever need a sitter

And have a soft bed

I’d love for us to meet.
