Written in July 2009, when I was kind of an idiot. Least I was a happy idiot.


I didn't think it was possible
But you're just as sweet as I thought you were
The right amount of sunshine for my day

I won't let no man make a dog of me
But you're a woman so I guess I'll see
If I can keep my ego at bay

And run up happy to see you
Wagging my tail just to be with you
Alarming how eagerly devoted I'd be, sweet thing

You can call me a thousand times
Call me some pet name that rhymes
I won't get embarrassed, just call me again

Keep me on the shortest leash
I'll bark and bite whenever thieves
Encroach in the night to rob my best friend

Of her peace and her happiness
I know she deserves no less
Than comfort and protection and affection from me, sweet thing

I'll be grateful for our precious ride
Just as long as I can put my head outside
And pretend that I'm flying
But I won't have to pretend
If your hand's in my hand
Put your hand in my hand (shake)

Maybe it's humanity
That keeps me such a lonely me
The money and the problems, just put them away
Something to eat and something to smell
Someone to love and I might as well
Roll over and enjoy these dog days

Without scratching or scrambling
For some phony life that might have been
What more could I need than what's right here with me, sweet thing
