Father I have a hamster and she's my pet.
Some people don't know as they've never met.
She is awake all night and sleeps all day
Not giving us a lot of time to play.
But when we do we have so much fun
She goes in her wheel and just runs and runs
Sometimes when I think she's alone and looking sad
I whisper in her cage that I'm her dad
I look into Maddie's eyes and I know that she can see
That I love her and she loves me.
