1. Dog and Jackal

A song based upon an African legend about friendship and personal needs.


If I could tell you that way back whenever
The dog and the jackal lived together as friends
But they were so hungry and bad luck had found them
But the cold was too much for the dog and so he ran away
Seeking the fire and scraps beneath the table
Off to find a friend like you

Would you listen….eloquently regaling you?
Which one’s the jackal? Which is the dog?
Trust ran deep between us and I hope it won’t leave us
If we’re still hungry we’ll feed on the flame
Seeking companions who will fulfill our needs
Let’s not forget our friends like these
