amos learns god s ways

boss being a christian mouse
in a world of heathen alley
cats ain t easy to do
last sunday pastor
leroy beetle preached
about loving one
another and sharing with
those less fortunate and
the moment he said that
something inside my
little mousy heart went
pitter-pat pitter-pat
and i knew that
message was for me

that afternoon boss i
decided to show my love
to trigger the trap-door
spider by being nice to him
and giving him some of my
hard-earned cheese

it wasn t easy boss
you see i never really
liked trigger to start with
he was always playing
practical jokes on folks
like trapping freddie
the flea on his way
to tea with miss sally lee
or scaring little flies
and honey bees on their
way to biology

anyway i was supposed
to love trigger so i gathered
up my cheese and headed
for his place in the weeds

trigger says i
i want you to know
that jesus loves you and i
do too so here s some cheese
it s guaranteed to please from
your ears down to your knees

all right he grinned his
impish little grin thanks a lot
little tot
