Dirty Dog

Raised the veil...saw the face
Jumped the rail, fell out of grace
Crossed the road and never looked
With every step that I took, I tore a page
from the Rulebook
Collar me

"Don't say anything nice.
 Don't make anyone else happy.
 You'd better always think twice
 and remember you love me."
I might be better off lost in the road,
lying in the middle
Dirty Dog's got a broken leg
Dirty Dog has dug himself a new hole

Who bites the hand when it feeds?
Dirty Dog (animal needs)
Then licks the wound until it bleeds?

"You'd better stay in the yard.
 You better rock `n roll over.
 Don't bite the slippers too hard
 or make a mess on the sofa."
But I could be better off left in the road,
lying in the middle
Dirty Dog's got a broken heart
Dirty Dog has dug himself a deep hole

"Don't do anything nice.
 Don't make anyone else happy.
 You'd better always think twice,
 and tell her you love me."
But I would be better of dead in the road,
right down the middle
Dirty Dog's got a broken head
Dirty Dog has dug himself the big hole

We all go down...together
We all close our eyes
Dead dog tells no lies
