Nellie McKay The Dog Song Lyrics

Last updated: 01/24/2005 10:00:00 AM

I'm just a walkin' my dog
singin' my song
strollin' along
It's just me and my dog
catchin' some sun
we can't go wrong

My life was lonely and blue
yeah I was sad as a sailor
I was an angry 'un too
Then there was you
appeared, when I was entangled
with youth, and fear, and nerves
jingle jangled
vermouth and beer
were gettin' me mangled up

But then I looked in your eyes
and I was no more a failure
you looked so wacky and wise
and I said, lord I'm happy
'cause I'm just a walkin' my dog
singin' my song
strollin' along
it's just me and my dog
catchin' some sun
we can't go wrong
'cause I don't care 'bout your hatin' and your doubt
and I don't care what the politicians spout
if you need a companion
well just go right to the pound
and find yourself a hound
and make that doggie proud
'cause that's what it's all about

My life was tragic and sad
I was the archetypal loser
I was a pageant gone bad
Then there was you on time
and wagging your tail
in the cutest mime
and you was in jail
I said woof, be mine
and you gave a wail
and then I was no longer alone
and I was no more a boozer
we'll make the happiest home
and I said lord I'm happy
'cause I'm just a walkin' my dog
singin' my song
strollin' along
it's just me and my dog
catchin' some sun
we can't go wrong
'cause I don't care 'bout your hatin' and your doubt
and I don't care what the politicians spout
if you need a companion
why just go on by the pound
and find yourself a hound
and make that doggie proud
'cause that's what it's all about
that's what it's all about
that's what it's all about
that's what it's all abow-wow-wow
that's what it's all about
(pant) (pant) (pant) (pant) (pant) good dog
