Oh Tennis Ball

Hello. This is The Daily Bone and I’m your jocular doggie host Chester L. W. Stephens. 


My family hasn’t had time to put up Christmas decorations yet. My ghostwriter has been working overtime, and Dad hasn’t been feeling well. So I will regale you with my rendition of "Oh Tennis Ball." (To tune of “Oh Christmas Tree”)




Verse 1
Oh tennis ball, oh tennis ball, you are my favorite plaything 
Oh tennis ball, oh tennis ball, you are my favorite plaything


So round and fuzzy, green and bright. I love you morning, noon, and night 
Oh tennis ball, oh tennis ball, you are my favorite plaything




Verse 2
Oh tennis ball, oh tennis ball, you are my favorite plaything
Oh tennis ball, oh tennis ball, you are my favorite plaything


You’re always bouncing down the stairs, and rolling under Daddy’s chair
Oh tennis ball, oh tennis ball, how can you do this to me?




Verse 3
Oh tennis ball, oh tennis ball, you drive me to distraction
Oh tennis ball, oh tennis ball, you drive me to distraction


 'Cause I can never reach you where, you're hiding under Mommy's chair
Oh tennis ball, oh tennis ball, you drive me to distraction.



Verse 3
Oh tennis ball, oh tennis ball, wherever do you wander
Oh tennis ball, oh tennis ball, wherever do you wander


You’re hiding under every chair, communing with the dirt and hair 


Oh tennis ball, oh tennis ball, wherever do you wander. 




Verse 4 
Oh tennis ball, oh tennis ball, now you’re not going anywhere
Oh tennis ball, oh tennis ball, now you’re not going anywhere


I caught you and your brothers too, so now I'll keep an eye on you
Oh tennis ball, oh tennis ball, now you’re not going anywhere. 




Verse 5
Oh tennis ball, oh tennis ball, you are my favorite plaything
Oh tennis ball, oh tennis ball, you are my favorite plaything  


I love to roll you down the stairs, and where you end up I don’t care! 
Oh tennis ball, oh tennis ball, you are my favorite plaything.  


(Here we go again!)
