Sesame Street – Do The Dog lyrics

Well, I got a little dance to tell you about
A dance to make you bark, not scream and shout
You ask what kind of dance can it possibly be
I'll show you with the kids and Barkley

It's called the dog
(Ruff, ruff)
Yeah, get down on all fours and do the dog
(Ruff, ruff)
Now scoot around on the floor and do the dog
(Ruff, ruff)
Pretend your name is Rover
And when you do the dog, you gotta roll over

Now pretend that you're a dog and that you have fur
But you're not a cat, so don't meow or purr
Just sound like a doggie and you'll have fun
You can bark, bark, bark 'till this song is done

And do the dog
(Ruff, ruff)
You can let out a growl and do the dog
(Ruff, ruff)
Now let me hear you howl and do the dog
(Ruff, ruff)
The dance that no one can match
Now pretend that you have fleas and scratch
Scratch, scratch

If you're feeling tired and pooped is what
You're getting
And you're not in the mood for any playing or petting
Just lay on down
But before your eyes are shut
Turn around three times
Like that great big mutt

And do the dog
(Ruff, ruff)
Ruff ruff ruff ruff
Do the dog
(Ruff, ruff)
Ruff ruff ruff ruff
Oh, do the dog
(Ruff, ruff)
Ruff ruff ruff ruff
Ruff ruff ruff ruff
Ruff ruff ruff ruff
Ruff ruff ruff ruff
Ruff ruff ruff ruff
