The Lyrics

I Wanna Be A Hound,
Those mutts have the good life..
Just play around, never work
The way that a human jerk
Must do...

No marriage, no ex
No tax bill collects,
And all of the sex they wish
Roam the neighborhood...
Served dinners with good "nutrish"..
..In a dish

I said, I....Wanna Be A Hound
Some pooch or a poodle
Who lies around days and nites
Gets sprayed when a wild flea bites
His bone..

I'd suck up to the master or a mistress sweet
Trot off and fetch a stick, receive a goody treat
Lick faces and wag my tail..
The perfect

Oh, yes,...I said...I...Wanna Be A Hound
And not have to buy gas
I'd just ride around for free..
My head out the window'd be
So fine..

I hope reincarnation is reality..
So. in that next life I will have the chance to see
A collar around my neck..
Bet, one cool hound, I'd be...

You're on your way, man, 'cause you ain't never caught a rabbit, and you... well, you know how it goes. Does this mean I have to give you a 35? That's 5 in dog points? (Yeah, I know, i used that joke already.)
