The Lyrics

I am a beggar in God’s doorway
Call my name and I'll come your way
I have no brother, no cousin
Adopted -- I wasn’t
I am an Arfin' Dog

I was abandoned by my mother
There were no others in my litter
I have no father to go with me
Down to Six Wags, chasing frisbees
I am an Arfin’ dog

Other puppies, always cuter
At the pound where I was neutered
No best friend, no sister
Help me Jesus, Hairy Krishna
I am an Arfin’ dog

When my master calls me, I’ll be able
To eat scraps from the family table
Blessed Savior, pure and shaggy
Take my leash and make me waggy
No more an Arfin’ dog

(ending to the tune of “Will the Circle Be Unbroken”)
I will learn to be housebroken
By and by Lord, by and by
There’s a leather bone a waitin’
In the sky Lord, in the sky
