Mary-kate & Ashley Olsen – Desperate For A Dog lyrics

Mom and Dad
Can't you see we're sad?
Pining away for a canine
Wow is me
Oh the misery
We'd like a dog
We lack a dog
Alas! Alack-a-dee!

Desperate for a dog
We're just desperate for a dog!
Give us a puppy!
Not a gerbil or a frog
We're just desperate for a dog!
Give us a pooch!

A kid's best friend
To romp and frisk and bark
Lick your nose, she'd on your clothes
Chase a frisbee in the park

Desperate for a dog
We're just desperate for a dog!

We've asked you politely
For a year or two
You always say we'll see about it
Then you never do
Our friends all have got dogs
How do you thing we feel?
What's the big deal?
A collie or a dalmatian
A poodle or an Alsatian
Maltese, Pekinese
Please, oh please, oh please, oh please, oh please!


We're begging!!!
Keep your hamster and your hog
We're just desperate for a dog!

It's no big thing
Any mutt will do
Let's trot to the pound, pick out a hound
Find a shoe for him to chew
