Gonna Buy Me A Dog Lyrics

by Monkees

Now?
You know my girl now?
No?

You know my girl just called me up
And she woke me from my sleep
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 tellin' you
I'm gonna buy me a dog
My girl, my girl, don't love me no how

Don't ruin my song man
It's the only song I have
It was ruined when it was wrote
Uh, where's the verse?

She used to bring me my, my newspaper
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

One, two, three, four
One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, hike!
Eight, nine
Hike!
Hike!

I was late on that one
I just got back from Africa, you know
I was playing cards with the natives
Oh, Zulus?
No, I usually won, ah, ah, ah!

I wish I had a glass of water
Why? Ya thirsty?
No. I want to see if my neck leaks
I'd buy a raccoon, but John already has one
Thirty-five bucks
Where do I come in, here?

I, I'm gonna buy me a dog
Dog!
A dog hmm!
Yeah!
As I need a friend now
Yeah, yeah!
Boop, boop, sh-bop, bop, ramalama
I'm gonna buy me a dog
Want my girl?
My girl, don't love me no how, how

Now, 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
I think 'dog' would be the word
Would it? Would it be dog?
It would be dog
Definitely dog

It would come springing from my lips
'Dog'
Springing from!
Let's get out of here
Springing from my
It's alright Tony, can you turn it off please
Can somebody open the door and let us out?
They are coming to take us away!
