​Dogtown

This song is by Yoko Ono and appears on the album A Story (1974).

The town's dawning, I'm the only one awake.
The streets are whistling, I light my fourth cigarette.
I think of my friends, they were once not so dead.
What are they thinking now?

One day I'll be just a little stone,
Nobody'll know that the stone had such emotions.
Anyway, I'm always on the run.
Someday I'll be remembered for the phone calls I never made,
Letters I never mailed,
And stories I never finished telling anyone.

The town's yawning, I let my dog walk me around.
He took a shoot and people smiled,
I tried the same and people frowned.
Yes, it's a dog, dogtown.

One day let's be a pair of trees,
Nobody'll know that the trees had such a history.
Anyway, we'd never be this lonely.
Someday I'll be remembered for the fine words I meant to keep,
A warm smile I meant to leave,
And a true song I meant to finish writing all my life.

Yes, it's a dogtown, it's a dogtown,
Yes, it's a dogtown, it's a dogtown.
Dog, dog, dog, dog, dog, dog, dog, dog, dogtown.

Peas porridge luck, peas porridge stuck,
Peas porridge in the pot nine years old.
Some gets paid, some gets grades,
Some stays in the pot nine years old.

Yes, it's a dogtown, it's a dogtown,
Yes, it's a dogtown, it's a dogtown.
Dog, dog, dog, dog, dog, dog, dog, dog, dogtown.

Peas porridge loved, peas porridge spoiled,
Peas porridge in the pot nine years old.
Some gets laid, some gets slayed,
Some stays in the pot nine years old.

Yes, it's a dogtown, it's a dogtown
Yes, it's a dogtown, it's a dogtown
Dog, dog, dog, dog, dog, dog, dog, dog, dogtown

Dogtown, dogtown, dogtown, dogtown,
Dogtown, dogtown, dogtown
