(may be sung to _wild Mountain Thyme__

There once was a little boy
Who, through accident or folly,
Found himself in danger dire -
Then he'd turn and tell his collie ...

Will you go, Lassie, go?
And have mom fetch a ladder
For I'm stuck in this mine
I’m afraid that snake's an adder
Will you go, Lassie, go?

So his mom came on the run
But her legs - alas - got busted
When she slipped on that long climb
So the dog once more was trusted ...

Will you go, Lassie, go?
For I feel an earthquake rumbling!
Although things could still be fine
If the old dam stops it's crumbing
Will you go, Lassie, go?

Lassie scaled the fire tower ...
To the mountain's top she'd skitter ...
Warned us all - in yips and whines ...
Raised her puppies by the litter ... *

Will you go, _Lassie_, go?
Into re-runs forever
With that child she's entwined
In a bond that time can't sever
Will you go, Lassie, go?
That's the old _Lassie_ show ...
Kind of maudlin, I must warn ya'
On at nine mountain time **
Or at eight in California
Will you go, Lassie, go?








* Great acting, as all the dogs who played the role of Lassie were male.

** _Lassie_ ran for 17 seasons Sundays at 7:00 pm (Eastern), but that
doesn't scan. So sue me.
