Puttin’ On The Dog
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!
