Third Dog

© 2004 Midnight Island Music

By the time that I figure out what I should do
Every fool and his dog will have thought of it too
The kennels were full when I came to town
Just one more mutt they would have to put down
Dogs aren't allowed on the streets after dark 
And Noah's already got both of his on the ark
That doesn't mean the third dog won't bark 

Every girl has a pet, every blind man a guide
Every truck with a rack has got a dog for a ride
They don't need another no matter what kind
I'm chasing my tail and I'm falling behind
Dogs aren't allowed off the leash in the park
And Noah's already got both of his on the ark
That doesn't mean the third dog won't bark

This town needs a dog like a stain on a rug
Every shoe has been chewed every garden's been dug
The papers are filled with puppies for sale
And the dog in the manger is wagging his tail
Dogs aren't allowed where they might leave a mark
And Noah's already got both of his on the ark
That doesn't mean the third dog won't bark

I guess I'll be gone when that yellow snow melts
Not that it's different anywhere else
I've travelled around seen what everyone sees
Too many dogs for the number of trees
Dogs aren't allowed to show their teeth like a shark
And Noah's already got both of his on the ark
That doesn't mean the third dog won't bark
