Gonna sit right here and sing myself a tune
That I wrote one afternoon after everyone had gone
And I know that this won't mean a lot to you
You've got better things to do but for me I'll just go on

Old dog is lying in the middle of the road
He don't do nothing 'cause he don't want to
And I think I'm gonna like that hound
'Cause the more he sits around, the less I want to do too

Gonna sit right here and watch the world roll by
Till we both just up and die watching clouds and eating flies
Don't want to bother no one, don't want nothing here to change
A dusty road is all we've ever dreamed of

And I think I'm gonna love this life
Maybe someday take a wife
She can join us if she wants to
Ain't nobody gonna tell what to do

If a car comes we just move
And we both move real smooth

Like old dog is moving must be something in the air
Some bitch is coming up the road now
And I think I'm gonna like that hound
'Cause the more he gets around, the more I want to do too
