The Lyrics

When I was young: pestered pa…for a puppy dog
He used to say, “Maybe next year”
(You know he did…you know he did…you know he did)
So I brought home a mangy stray, an’ he was livid
Made me wave it bye-bye
I didn’t get why (didn’t get why)
Didn’t get why (didn’t get why)

Words of my mother were true
Said, “I’ll get a pet for you…
An’ it’ll kennel dwell…
If daddy moans, I’m gonna give ‘im hell”

An’ so I said, “You’re the best mum”
(You know I did…you know I did…you know I did)
But pa came home completely stoned an’ with the munchies
Turned our oven up high
For puppy dog pie (puppy dog pie)
Puppy dog pie (puppy dog pie)

Late again! Only 8 and a half years. I bin busy. I give you one 5 for the OS choice. Another 5 for the fact that barking dogs drive me nuts. The last 5 for telling the story with few available lyrics.
