Children and Dogs

This song is by Graham Parker and appears on the album Struck by Lightning (1991).

She said she just wanted a friend And then she'd be good
Something to play with now again And give lots of food
We've got a yard that's big enough She says he's like a dream
But they've got us running round in circles Like a pair of clowns it seems

Children and dogs will always win Everyone knows that
I won't work with either one again It's not in our contract
Children and dogs

Now I'm outside freezing to death Just walking the dog
Instead of throwing myself at my wife I'm throwing a log
We haven't slept for two nights He howls out at the moon
The kid says sometimes he bites Can you bring a bunny rabbit home soon

Make you trip over your ankles Do all kinds of things that rankle
Make you wanna go and drink a tankful And remember when you were single

The bedroom's got two carpets And one sticks to your clothes
Let's take a photo of all of us Fixed grins in a family pose
