You very rarely think of me. No gratitude, nor praise.
You often do bad things to me, as I serve you, all your days.
I worked for you both day and night, before you even knew,
And I continue to this day, but it seems that you haven't a clue.
You do not seem to care one whit that I work like a horse.
You just assume that I'll be true, and keep my steady course.
But, if I make just one mistake, then suddenly you care.
You rush to take good care of me. At last you know I'm there.
I do not ask a lot of you. Eat some oatmeal! Walk the dog!
Get off that chair for just a while. Jump rope or take a jog!
You'll find me not ungrateful. You'll find I can be true.
And both of us will last so long, that your heirs will get quite blue.
So give me away, but hold me close and I'll serve and try to be brave.
Just speak my name and pat your chest, and I may give you what you crave.
