A fur coat --- And there ain’t nuthin’ else gonna do.

 

Said she’d look real classy, make me proud’a her

If I’d run down to the store and buy her a fur.

 

Well, she put me t’ thinkin’ how that I was gonna swing that kinda deal

She knows we can’t afford nuthin’ like that and I’m too afraid t’ steal!

 

But the problem finally solved itself like a bolt out of the blue

It just jumped right out in front of me on highway twenty-two

 

That big ol’ German Shepard, my car he didn’t see

He went to dog heaven left his hide there for me.

 

For six weeks in the basement I worked on it every night

It was trial and error but I finally got it right

 

I put it in a Captain Crunch box carried it upstairs to her

Oooo, how she kissed me when she seen her fur

 

Now she’s got that fuzzy fur coat reaches all the way down to her knees

She’s been complainin’ lately says her closet’s plumb full of fleas

 

She don’t know old Fido is wrapped around her tight

She’s puttin’ on the dog when she goes out at night

 

Yeah, she don’t know old Fido is wrapped around her tight

She’s really puttin’ on the dog when she goes out at night

 

She’s been real depressed since I backed out over the cat

I believe she’s gonna smile real big when I show her that new fur hat!
