Roches – Damned Old Dog lyrics

(Words & Music by Margaret A Roche)

Do I wanna be a dog?
Any diddlin' male would do
If I was a damned old dog
I wouldn't be fussy for you

Do I wanna be a housebroken dog
Eat better than an Indian
I don't wanna be a damned old dog
I just wanna lick your chin again

I thought that I could convince you
I thought that I could get through
Chew out a hole in the fence you
Barked up between me and you

Limpin' around in the moonlight
Coverin' up what I did
Words decompose all around me
Nuisances I committed

Do I wanna be a dog
Cut the heat out of me
If I was a damned old dog
I wouldn't have to goddamn human be
