My dog and me

 

 

 

My dog and me

weve got a good thing going.

I pay the food bills

and he does the growing.

 

And when Im out there working ,

he sleeps the whole day round.

Yet when I go to call him,

hes nowhere to be found!

 

 

Hes suppose to be a guard dog,

but hes the biggest wimp Ive met.

When strangers come a-calling

he licks them half to death.

 

 

But I love him just the same,

in sleek and rain and hail,

Cause he makes me coo with affection

when he wags his little tail.

 

 

My dog and me,

yep, we got a good thing going.

Ah! Its a dogs life all right.
