What better friend can there be?

Right by your side, trying hard to please.

Was always there right by your side

Just to protect you he’ll fight or die.

You came to us when you were small

We watched you grow strong and tall.

A hundred words you learned to know

The love you had always showed.

Always gentle as you kept watch

Like watching over your family flock.

You watched your kids through all the years

And showed all strangers they better fear.

What better friend can there be?

Was always there trying hard to please.

You thought that company was just for you

And would not leave till you got a hug or two.

Christmas morning we knew where you would be

Sitting with bright eyes beside the Christmas tree.

You know you had presents and would always wait

You were always giving, would never take.

What better friend can there be?

Was always their trying to please.

Today I put you to sleep and cried a million tears

No better friend I will ever find if I live a hundred years.

You’re at your place in heaven not that far away

Waiting for your family you looked after every day.
