eh-very dog has his day

may be sung to the melody of "eh-very dog has his day"...

how much can i take things for granted
how much can i piddle away
how often i say i am blessèd
before eh-very dog eh-very dog
eh-very dog has his day

i move in molecular motion
i'm going around and around
i'm singing à table for my supper
just like eh-very dog eh-very dog
eh-very dog on the ground

tiny toes tiny bones
tiny splinters in tiny souls
tiny eyes tiny tails
waking the master with slaughter

my tongue is so rigid
it finds all the crevasses
i wake in the water
i sing to the slaughter
i am just a dog, a poor lonely dog
i wander the world with my tail
'tween my legs and i rest
'til i can sing again

and i wake in the water
i dance on the moon
i sing for my supper
i don't take no orders
from any-one

i'm a dog for you
and a dog for me
i've got fleas and
lots of gangrene
i'm just a mangy old mutt on the line
singing for pieces of salty brine and
i know that i can't take it with me again
but i know that i might and i try anyway

how much can i take things for granted
how much i can i piddle away
how often i say i am blessèd
before eh-very dog, eh-very dog,
eh-very dog has his day... yesss
eh-very dog has his day... yesss

every doggie every hound
every mealy mouthed chihuaha in town
and the poodles do beg
on their little hind legs
and i say it's a tiny
a tiny world again

tiny toes tiny bones
tiny splinters in tiny souls
tiny eyes tiny tails
waking the master with slaughter

i move in molecular motion... ho ho
i'm going around and aroun... dah
i'm singing à table for my supper
just like eh-very dog, eh-very dog
eh-very dog on the groun... dah

Hey Laura,

Nice tribute to the doggies down there on the groun...dah who know how to come alive when life presents itself - in the water, begging for goodies. It is a beautiful tiny world down there where they are. They often go round when they greet you, "molecular motion", so happy. I like that you see yourself in doggie mode too - unity of life. Woof.

This was certainly a fresh look into the dog nation. Clever, Laura, to find a voice here.
