The Rotten Boys are quite a pair.
They don't wash their own faces or comb their own hair.
They're the best of buddies morning, noon and night.
They're happy as June bugs still standing upright.
They wake up every morning and with joy they greet the day.
With fluffy tails a-waggin, they only want to play.
And when they get excited, as the Rottens often do,
They break into a rousing Halleluiah chorus or two.
They sing in perfect harmony; they know just what to do.
Gabe sings, Yip, Yip, Yip! and Bailey sings, Woo, Woo!
Nighttime always finds them tucked safely in their bed
Waiting for a loving kiss and pat upon the head.
Our lives would be so different if the Rottens weren't around.
Instead of wearing happy smiles, we'd probably wear frowns.
Our days are filled with sunshine. Guess you could call us blessed.
When it comes to loyalty, they truly are man's best.
So if you're life is empty and you're often feeling blue,
Perhaps there's another Rotten at the shelter just for you.
You have so much to offer, and they have so much to give.
It's when you open up your heart you'll know you've truly lived.
For no man is an island if he reaches out to share,
And no dog is unfaithful to one who truly cares.
