The Doggie In the Window
Patti Page
Words and Music by Bob Merrill

Peaked at # 1 in 1953

CHORUS
How much is that doggie in the window? *(arf! arf!)*
The one with the waggley tail
How much is that doggie in the window? *(arf! arf!)*
I do hope that doggie's for sale

I must take a trip to California
And leave my poor sweetheart alone
If he has a dog, he won't be lonesome
And the doggie will have a good home

CHORUS

I read in the paper there are robbers **(roof! roof!)**
With flashlights that shine in the dark
My love needs a doggie to protect him
And scare them away with one bark

I don't want a bunny or a kitty
I don't want a parrot that talks
I don't want a bowl of little fishies
He can't take a goldfish for a walk

How much is that doggie in the window? *(arf! arf!)*
The one with the waggley tail
How much is that doggie in the window? *(arf! arf!)*
I do hope that doggie's for sale

I do hope that doggie's for sale

TRANSCRIBER'S NOTE: "*(arf! arf!)*" sounds like a small dog, perhaps Pekingese. **"**(roof!
roof!)**" is a bigger dog, maybe a German Shepherd.
