What does a dog think?

I
If I die on the road lay me no flowers.
If on the road I die lay me no flowers.
On the road lay me no flowers if I die.
Lay me not if I die flowers on the road.
Lay me not on the road flowers if I die.
No flowers on the road if I die lay me.
No flowers on the road lay me if I die.
If I die no flowers on the road lay me.
If flowers I die on the road lay me not.
Flowers if I die not on the road lay me.
If flowers I die lay on me the not road.
Flowers if lay I die me on not the road.
I die if lay flowers the on me on road.
The I die on if lay not me road.
If flowers I die lay on me the not road.
Flowers if lay I die me on not the road.
If I die on the flowers lay me not on the road.
If flowers I die lay me not on the road.
If on the road flowers lay me not if I die.
If on the I die lay me not on the road flowers.

II
Going in a rust bucket, in a tin heap,
I’m going on the road.
I’m going, get­ting going on the road.
I’m going to a flower gar­den that is by the road.
I’m going in a rust bucket, in a tin heap,
going to buy flowers for my dead,
but lay me no flowers if I die on the road.

III
If I die on the road bury me in the gar­den
that is by the road, but lay no flowers for me.
When one meets their end on the road
one has no flowers laid for them from that or any other garden.

IV
If I die, if I don’t die,
If I die becau­se I don’t die.
If I don’t die becau­se I die.
If I die on the road.
If I don’t die but on the road I do die.
If I die becau­se I don’t die on the road.
If I don’t die becau­se I die on the road.
Lay me no f, lay me no l, lay me no o,
Lay me no w, lay me no e, lay me no r, lay me no s.
Lay me no flo, lay me no wers,
If I die on the r.
