SHE LOVES MY DOG MORE THAN ME lyrics  ©Freebo, Bassline Music (BMI) Harold Payne, Harold Payne Music(BMI)
Once upon a time,
Everything was so fine,
Cozy just my baby and me.
I was so well fed,
Had my breakfast in bed,
I was happy as a man can be.
Then my buddy called up,
Had the cutest little pup,
I couldn’t help but take him in.
Little did I know
Her affection would go
To my new little four legged friend.

CHORUS:
Now she loves my dog
More than me.
She loves my dog
More than me.
I love my dog,
And she loves my dog,
But she loves my dog
More than me.

We were lyin’ by the fire,
Burnin’ with desire,
When suddenly, to my chagrin,
As the fire got to stokin’,
Came a cold nose a pokin’,
Somewhere it should not have been.
I thought she’d shoo him away,
But she told him stay,
It kind o’ took me out of the zone.
Now a man’s best friend
Gets the girl in the end,
And I’m left holdin’ the bone.

CHORUS:

So I’m sittin’ here  fumin’
While he’s getting’ all the groomin’,
That ain’t how it’s supposed to be.
Well you know I don’t hate ‘em,
But I’ve got an ultimatum;
Baby, it’s the dog or me!
Well I got her reply
As she led me outside,
And she handed me my People Chow.
Now I’m howlin’ at the moon
While he’s up in my room,
And I’m in the Doghouse now.

CHORUS:
There’s a moral to the story:
When you fall from glory,
You gotta do it gracefully.
So I’m back in the bed,
With the dog at the head,
We’re a Nuclear Family.
And I accept my fate,
And there’s little debate,
‘Cause this ain’t no democracy.
From the moment he came,
it’s been a doggone shame….
That she loves my dog
More than me.
CHORUS

I Like My Dog Better Than You lyrics  ©2015 John Hollingsworth with additional lyrics by Terry Talbot


I like my dog better than you
He doesn’t tell me what to do
Lets me wear the same shirt twice in a row
And leave my clothes all over the floor

I like my dog. He’s got a big wet nose
Doesn’t blow my money on fancy clothes
Never calls my cell ten times in a row
I like him better than you

Chasin’ my tail all over town
Wishin’ you were around
Grab the leash. Can’t you at least
Give me another try

I like my dog. He a good ‘ol pup
He puts the seat down if I leave it up
Lets me talk about my mother-in-law

I like him better than you

Man, I love my dog. Man, I love my dog
Oh, I love my dog. Oh I love my dog
Man, I love my dog. Man I love my dog
Oh, I love my dog. Oh, I love my dog

Now I hold the clicker when I watch TV
The dog and I don’t bicker ‘bout what to see
Lets me eat my dinner right outta the can
Wipe my face with the back of my hand, yeah

I love my dog. He likes to ride in the car
Never says a word about where we are
Lets me pick the songs on the radio

I like him better than you

I’m chasing my tail all over town
Wishin’ you were around
Grab the leash. Can’t you at least
Give me another try

Come on, boys
I like my dog better than you
He doesn’t tell me what to do
Lets me wear the same shirt twice in a row
I like him better than you!
Ooh waa ooh
