The sheep are ready
And I am ready too
I am Zippy the herding dog
And I have a job to do.
I zip in and out among the sheep
Faster and faster I go
I gather them around
Nipping at their heels as I go.
I gather the flock of sheep
It is my job to do
My master gives me the whistles
I will follow faithful and true.
In and out I will weave
To make the sheep come together
To the far paddock we go
In the sheep will go to the fold.
Zippy the herder dog is my name
And herding sheep is my working game.
