Hank the Cowdog

Sally May

Wife of Loper, mother of Little Alfred and Baby Molly, chief of the chicken coop, and manager of the vegetable and flower gardens, Sally May has plenty to keep her busy. But nothing seems to preoccupy her more than Hank. As far as Sally May's concerned, Hank can't do anything right. With this song, Sally May explains how Hank tries her patience:

"We seem to have a problem relating, you and I.
We seem to have a problem, seeing eye to eye.
We seem to stand a world apart on almost everything.
It's a fundamental disagreement.
I know you think I'm fussy about my yard and home,
You probably think I'm wicked, my heart is made of stone.
You just don't seem to understand or even really try,
It's a fundamental disagreement."
