I Wanna Be A Dog

From the album Wha'd'ya Wanna Do? Buy Now

- a Barry Louis Polisar breathe - along!

I WANNA BE A DOG

Oh I wanna be a dog                                              

I wanna wag my tail                                               

Chase cars and knock over garbage cans                  

Bite the lady who brings the mail!                             

 

Oh I wanna be a dog

I wanna drool on the floor

Get pats on the head, chase cats, get fed

Chew your shoes and bark at the door!

 

Oh I wanna be a dog

I wanna dig big holes

I wanna sniff French Poodles and Bassett Hounds

And pee on telephone poles!

 

Oh I wanna be a dog

I wanna big wet nose

I wanna run in the street, get mud on my feet

Then jump up onto your clothes!

 

Bridge:  Oh I wanna have dog-breath!                       

I wanna learn to growl                                            

Scratch fleas and ticks, and run after sticks               

I want the moon to make me hooooooooooowl!           

 

Oh I wanna be a dog

I wanna sleep on the ground

Bein’ human these days is gettin’ too crazy

I just wanna be a hound!
