I'm a dog, a dirty flying dog
I drink Campari with marinated wild hog
I've no sense, I lick electric fence
I put barbed wire in my pants and do a Celtic dance
But when I can, I'm a giving man
I'll flip you out the fire and back up into the frying pan
And if you're down looking like you're gonna drown
Of all your friends I'm the one who's most apt to stick around
I'm a drowning man
Who will save this drowning man?
Who will save this drowning man?
Who will save this dirty drowning man?

You're so fine (You're so fine), so bright and shiny fine (Fine)
And I'm so proud to say that you in fact are a friend of mine
And doubly pleased (Doubly pleased) with crooked wobbly knees
I dive on in and backstroke right across these seas of cheese
But on the times when I'm not such a giving man
Please flip me out of the fire and backup into the frying pan
And if you're down looking like you're gonna drown
Of all your friends I'm the one who's most apt to stick around
I'm a drowning man
Who will save this drowning man?
Who will save this drowning man?
Who will save this dirty drowning man?

I'm a dog (I'm a dog), a dirty flying dog
I drink Campari with marinated wild hog
I've no sense (I've no sense), I lick electric fence
I put barbed wire in my pants and do a Celtic dance
But when I can, I'm a giving man
I'll flip you out the fire and back up into the frying pan
And if you're down looking like you're gonna drown
Of all your friends I'm the one who's most apt to stick around
I'm a drowning man (Who will save this drowning man?)
Who will save this drowning man? (Who will save this drowning man?)
Who will save this drowning man? (Who will save this drowning man?)
Who will save this dirty drowning man?

And if you're down looking like you're gonna drown
Of all your friends I'm the one who's most apt to stick around
I'm a drowning man
Who will save this drowning man?
Who will save this drowning man?
Who will save this drowning man?
Who will save this drowning man?
Who will save this drowning man?
Who will save this drowning man?
Who will save this drowning man?

Who will save this drowning man?
