slide2
In Ecorse many, many years ago,

A little brown beagle looked for some place to go.

He wandered around with no occupation,

Then he found the Outer Drive Fire Station.

slide3
The firemen gave him warm food and a bed,

“Hop on the fire truck and ride with us,” they said.

“You can help put out fires but that’s not all,

You can make lots of friends with a shake of your paw.”

slide4
Smoky kept his paw busy all day and some nights,

Greeting hundreds of children, both black and white,

If the boys and girls felt sad or came down sick,

Smoky licked their hands and did funny tricks.

slide5
Children from schools Miller and One, Two, and Three,

Came to watch and admire the antics of Smoky,

Smoky did somersaults and then stopped on a dime.

Then he barked to the children, “It’s sing along time!”

slide6
Smoky and the children sang songs up and down,

Smoky and the children sang songs all around town!

Their songs traveled to High Street and Labadie,

Their songs traveled to Southfield and School Three.

slide7
When the children sang especially loud and alive,

Their songs rang in the air on Outer Drive!

Their songs shook cattails along the Detroit River,

Until tired Ecorseans gave a great shiver.

slide8
Exhausted Ecorseans fell in a huge heap,

Shouting, “Stop! We like your songs, but we need sleep!”

So Smoky and his friends sang short and snappy,

To keep the people of Ecorse happy.

slide9
Then Mr. Saylor and Mr. Campbell taking matters in hand,

Recruited them to march in the Ecorse High School band.

slide10
Smoky and his friends practiced on the Ecorse High School track,

It usually was dark before they got back,

And Smoky and his friends discovered the strangest thing,

They didn’t have very much time to sing!

slide11
For a time Ecorseans sighed with relief,

The marching did make the singing more brief,

Then the band got instruments and started to play,

Ecorseans closed windows for many a day!

slide12
But soon they opened their windows again by choice,

They missed the noise and they missed Smoky’s voice,

slide13
At last came time for Smoky to retire,

Sadly he fought his very last fire.

He rescued a kitten from a burning house,

He even saved the kitten’s toy mouse!

slide14
All of Smoky’s friends gathered to say goodbye,

They stood in the firehouse and started to cry.

slide15
“Don’t cry,” he barked. “Our friendship isn’t through,

I’m not leaving forever, never fear,

Remember me and I’ll always be near.”
