Joan Jett – Bird Dog lyrics


Johnny is a joker He's a bird
A very funny joker He's a bird)
But when he jokes my hone He's a dog
His jokin ain't so funny What a dog
Johnny is a joker that's a cryin'
To steal my baby He's a bird dog

Johnny sings a love song Like a bird
Sings the sweetest love song You ever heard
But when he sings to my gal What a howl
To me he's just a wolf dog On the prowl
Johnny wants to fly away and
Bug a lug my baby He's a bird dog

Hey bird dog stay away from my quail
Hey bird dog you're on the wrong trail
Bird dog you better leave my lovey dove alone
Hey bird dog get away from my chick
Hey bird dog better get away quick
Bird dog you better find
A chicky little of your own

He's a bird dog

Johnny kissed the teacher He's a bird
He tiptoed up to reach her He's a bird
Though he's the teacher's pet now He's a dog
What he wants he can get now What a dog
He even made the teacher let him sit
Next to my baby He's a bird dog

He's a bird dog he's a bird dog
