Anyone happen to know the lyrics to the Cajun children's song "Little Black Dog"?

I have heard it sung by Amanda Shaw. But have had no luck turning up the lyrics. It would make a great song for a children's program.

Update: the song was written by Amanda Shaw and her father Charles. It's the title cut on her first CD.

Amanda is kind of terrific -- she was already playing Cajun fiddle as a 9-year-old. Must be about 15 now. She has a great loose oldtime fiddle sound. Her second CD shows a trend toward pop, but she can really cut it on some of the oldtime Cajun songs.

As much of the lyric as I have heard her sing follows:

LITTLE BLACK DOG

By Amanda Shaw and Charles Shaw

There's a little black dog outside,
There's a little black dog outside,
The little boy laughed and the little girl sang,
There's a little black dog outside, bow wow wow.

There's a little grey cat on the couch ... etc as before

Can anyone furnish more words?

Bob

Ah, I was just going to say it was an Amanda Shaw original. But then you answered yourself. I don't think I have the lyrics, I'll have a look around.

I heard it on the radio a while back, but couldn't turn up the lyrics anywhere. You might try asking Amanda. Go to http://www.amandashaw.com/index.htm   and click on the little black dog near the bottom of the page.

You can hear her sing it at that YouTube link. The video has nothing to do with the song. The video uses the song as backdrop, but some lyrics are clear.
