You know my girl just called me up
And she woke me from my sleep
You should have heard the things she said
You know she hurt my feelings deep

I’m gonna buy me a dog (a dog, a dog! Why?)
'Cause I need a friend now. (say, you need all the friends you can get)
(I’m tellin' ya) I’m gonna buy me a dog
My girl, my girl, don’t love me no how.

She used to bring me my, my newspaper ('cause you don’t even know where it’s at)
'Cause she knew where it was at
She used to keep me so contented
But I can teach a dog to do that

I’m gonna buy me a dog, (you can’t teach dogs to do that, you can only train elephants!)
'Cause I need a friend now (I need a friend now)
I’m gonna buy me a dog (here Rover, Fido, Spot)
My girl, my girl, don’t love me no how

One two three four five six seven hike!
I was late on that one.
I just got back from Africa, you know, I was playing cards with the natives.
No I usually won.
I wish I had a glass of water.
Why you thirsty?
No I want to see if my neck leaks!
I would buy a raccoon but John already has one.
Thirty-five bucks. Where do I come in.

I’m gonna buy me a dog
'Cause I need a friend now
I’m gonna buy me a dog
My girl, my girl, don’t love me no how

How now brown cow
