Gonna Buy Me A Dog


By Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart



Now?
You know my girl
Now?
Yeah
You know my girl just called me up,
And she woke me from my sleep. (snoring)
You should have heard the things she said.
You know she hurt my feelings deep.
I'm gonna buy me a dog.
(A dog?) A dog. (Why?) Why...
'Cause I need a friend now.
(Babe, you need all the friends you can get, I'm telling ya.)
I'm gonna buy me a dog.
My girl, my girl, don't love me no how.
Don't ruin my song, man.
(It was already ruined before it was wrote.)

Where's the verse?
She used to bring me my, my newspapers.
(You don't even know where it's at.)
'Cause she knew where it was at.
She used to keep me so contented,
But I can teach a dog to do that.
I'm gonna buy me a dog.
(You couldn't teach a dog to do that, you can only train elephants.)
'Cause I need a friend now.
(I need a friend now.) Now.
(Yeah) I'm gonna buy me a dog.
(A dog. Here Rover, Fido, Spot.)
My girl, my girl, don't love me no how.
I 2 3, 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Hike. Hike. Hike.
(I was late on that one. I just got back from Africa, you know. I was playing cards with the natives.) Oh, Zulu's? (No, I usually won.) (laughing) I wish I had a glass of water. (Why, are you thirsty?) No, I want to see if my neck leaks. I'd buy a raccoon but John already has one. ($35 bucks.) Where do I come in?

I'm gonna buy me a dog.
(Dog.) A dog. Yeah
'Cause I need a friend now
(Yeah Yeah) Boop boop she boop a lop ram a lamb
I'm gonna buy me a dog.
What my girl?
My girl don't love me no how.
How now brown cow.
I think I'm gonna buy me a dog.
Yes, sir, I'm gonna buy me a dog. If I was looking for a word to describe what I'm gonna buy it would be,
(Would it be?)
I think it would be dog.
(Would it be dog?)
Definitely dog.
It would come spring my from lips.
(Springing…let's get out of here.)
Boing Boing.
It would be springing.
(Is that it Tommy?
Could you turn it off please?
Can somebody open the door and let us out?
They're coming to take us away!
Oh ha he he ho ho
They're coming to take us away!)
