Does your dog agonize?

DOES YOUR DOG AGONIZE?©2006 Lou & Peter Berryman, Cornbelt Music
Does your dog agonize
And do you empathize
Do his dreams wallow in
The dog he could have been
And if you ask him hey
Have you been good today
Does he avert ‘is eyes
Does your dog agonize
Does he ask of your cat
Why can’t I be like that
So full of confidence
A pet of consequence
And does that reinforce
His core of deep remorse
Tho he’s fine otherwise
Does your dog agonize
Did your dog write the book
About the hang-dog look
Does his tail droop and drag
Then give one feeble wag
Does he eye doggie girls
And whine when spotting squirrels
But then apologize
Does your dog agonize
Does he think maybe you
Should find him things to do
Like maybe blow your wad
On the iditerod
Then feels ashamed that he
Can’t independentlyLearn to self actualize
Does your dog agonize
BRIDGE: Some say that maybe we
Anthropomorphically
Project our own regrets
On unsuspecting pets
I spose it may be true
It’s really me who’s blue
I don’t tell my dog tho
It makes him worry so
Does your dog agonize
And do you empathize
Do his dreams wallow in
The dog he could have been
And if you ask him hay
Have you been good today
Does he avert ‘is eyes
Does your dog agonize
