What a terrible day
People and pets coming our way
Save them all that’s what I say.

Owners longing to see their pet’s faces
Look about for any traces
Hoping they’re among the animal rescue cases.

Gazing, there are pets of all sizes
They’re God’s little prizes
Now safe on dry land as the water rises.

The rescuers are so kind
They work long hours; they don’t mind
The water is finally receding, it's about time

Owners and pets reunited
Both of them delighted
Crying happy tears; excited

The dogs wagging their tails
Many breeds from Setters to Airedales
Owners relieved as they exhale

The rescuers find shelter for people and their pets
No more depressing thoughts
No more regrets

Thanking God they were reunited; no more frets
They pray for people and pets that have been lost, the long path they have crossed
Pray they're in heaven together; their love embossed.
