They don’t write songs like that anymore!You turn me off, and then you leave me in hereAnd then I’m scratching at, your door, begging you for, some moreYou make me hide, so your friends can come inside, and tell me to be quietI make some noise and I hear this haggled voice yelling hey what’s the riot? And I hear you say...It’s only the dogOr maybe the catOr maybe the birdUh huh honey it’s only meHe jumps off, his chair, said I’m a gonna look in thereMy heart hits, the floor, as he came toward the doorHe opened up to see, and fortunately for me, I resembled sherpa jacketHe closed the door, admitted he was wrong, about all the racketThen I heard you say...It’s only the dogOr maybe the catOr maybe it’s that birdUh huh honey it’s only meFinally, your friends, say they’re gonna be goin’Couldn’t wait to hear, hey, you come out now boy, it’s all clearGave me the sign, I was out in record time, but to my surpriseFrom under the bed came my friend edFrom behind the drapes came ’cousin and along with the guys’Now what you gonna say? It’s only the dogOr maybe the catOr maybe it’s that birdUh huh honey it’s only me
