Children And Dogs - Graham Parker

    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
