You're A Lot Like Me
Poetry by Marla Deaton
Audio Produced by Mark Edgemon
Narrated by Annette Morrison

Dedicated to a loving German Shepherd

You're just a Tramp
Boxed in your little cage
You rein in your wild side
You try to manage your rage

You dream of things you'll never do
Adventures you may never see
They're so real, but only in your mind
Oh Tramp, if you were only free.

You're so boxed in your little life
There's so much more you could do
I don't know how you do what you do
Oh Tramp, you're a lot like me
