He showed up one day from a place called Saratoga..
so delighted he would stay, we gave him Three Names!
Sometimes he would chill a bit on the front room's hardwood floor..
and maybe then decide to watch some shows on TV, (video)
before eventually heading back to his land under sea.
He liked hanging out in your hand the most,
always sizing things up like the day he found a quarter
yet he missed those natural things left behind for our quarters.
So off we went, carried away to find a place..
that eventually we found
over a rock, 'round a corner
a beautiful place so delighted to be free
there he goes! off the rock! where he wants to be;
in a big pond, with some fish and leaves and trees
a place he now calls Home.
