Lyrics:
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
