lyrics

He can’t help being the dog he is
He can’t help being the dog he is
When you get down to the marrowbone
Hanging around the lampposts
He can’t help being the dog he is

When we’re out walking the people stare
He should feel shame but he don’t care
Size means nothing in the canine mind
And he’s no wolfhound
And he can’t help being the dog he is

He didn’t mean to bite you
Didn’t mean to chew the steering wheel
Doesn’t really hate soft fournishings
Didn’t mean to piss on the curtains
Or steal the chicken from out of the oven
and drag it across the floor
leaving an oily smear on the carpet
and bones all down the hallway
and then throw up behind the sofa

He can’t help being the dog he is
He can’t help being the dog he is
Behind the bluster everybody knows
This dog’s life’s a dog’s life
And he can’t help being the dog he is
