Bless the noble Whippet hound
Sharp in swiftness, sight and sound
holds above him all his pride
Mighty Greyhound step aside
Who dares challenge the Whippet hound?
One knows he is perfection bound
Tri-colour, parti colour, black mask red
A fearless hunter where e'er he tread
Canine king or canine queen
the whippet's beauty plainly seen
by one who knows a touch of class
and one who loves a run in grass
You're wild as wind and calm as sea
Could I be you and you be me?
I wish I was a Whippet hound
Of course, to be a Whippet hound
