Big Black Dog Submit Correct Lyrics

A big black dog
Little too much gray around the muzzle
A big black dog
Why she ended up at the pound is a puzzle
A big black dog

Did she run away
Because somebody didn't treat her right?
Did they leave her out in the cold night air
Too lonely night?
A big black dog

A big black dog
I found her one day
Down there are the at the men's room
A big black dog
Waiting in a cage in line for the death row
Big black dog

Did somebody put her out on the road
And did just not care?
Did they think an old dog is too much trouble
For them to bear?
A big black dog

Her name is Bella, Bella
You're not brown, you're not yellow
Bella, Bella
My big black dog

Big black dogs, they're everywhere
Looking for a home, they're hungry and scared
All they need is food and attention
To give back love, sometimes redemption of sin
You could find them here in a big black dog

A big black dog
She may be a little rough around the edges
A big black dog
When you throw a ball, she'll always go and fetch it
Big black dog

With a brand new leash and a brand new collar
It's a brand new game
I love to see the way she runs to me
When I holler out her name
My big black dog

Her name is Bella, Bella
You're not brown, you're not yellow
Bella, Bella
My big black dog
My big black dog
