Down Behind The Dustbin – Michael Rosen

Down behind the dustbin 

I met a dog called Ted. 

‘Leave me alone,’ he says, 

‘I’m just going to bed.’ 

Down behind the dustbin 

I met a dog called Roger. 

‘Do you own this bin?’ I said. 

‘No. I’m only a lodger.’ 

Down behind the dustbin 

I met a dog called Sue. 

‘What are you doing here?’ I said. 

‘I’ve got nothing else to do.’
