LINCOLN CROCKETT: Music

Dog

Make Love Music
That Dog, don't mind sittin' on the porch
Any given day he'll be out there of course
Keepin' an eye out for that sneaky cat
Savin' the whole world from the mailman

I might be workin' for a 'job well done, Son'
For home and family I am on the run, not havin' fun
but I'm not complainin' 'bout the burnin' heat
When that dog's just smilin' 'neath the shady tree

Oh, and when I feel a weight around my neck
I know I can make it there, with the best
Oh, and when I feel like there's no turnin' back
I just do like that dog: take this day, and leave the rest
Like my dog...

You see your friends you kiss them on the mouth
get stupid happy just to leave the house
you're hangin' out, well then I'm hangin' out too
Cuz Nothin' makes me happier than to be here with you

Oh, and when I feel a weight around my neck
I know I can make it there, with the best
Oh, and when I feel like there's no turnin' back
I just do like that dog: take this day, and leave the rest
Like my dog...

Speak to me of gentle things
pearls of hope and diamond rings
Oh, that glitter in the sun
Tell me of the day you had
of all the good, and all the bad
well I swear, I swear that I will never run
Like my dog...
