Dog Man

 

Thereís a little man stuck in my dog,

but heís rather well                                 disguised.                                                                                                      I know heís in there,

cause that dogís just too wise.

 

He knows too much,

he thinks too much

to simply be a dog.

He even sometimes out wits me,

and thatís not just a matter of fluking the odds.

 

For Iím telling you;

 

there really is an old man in my dog,

and I donít think heís that benign,

So Iím gonna keep on searching                                                             for that little in my canine.
