Her love is like a candle
You light it up at night
Her heart is like a pack of cards
One chance to guess it right
Sometimes I do

She's got a tongue like a viper
But she can whisper like a dove
Soft touch like brushed velvet
Till she hits you from above
And sometimes she does

She leaves me breathing
Down like a fallen log
Just when I feel like dancing
I wake up sleeping with the dog
And it goes

Sleeping with the dog
Sleeping with the dog
Sleeping with the dog, yeah

I have to guess at the mysteries
Of her unfathomable soul, yeah
Guess when the time seems right
To make a broken spirit whole
That time is due, c'mon

She leaves me breathing
Down like a fallen log
And just when I feel like dancing
I wake up sleeping with the dog
Yeah, and it goes

Sleeping with the dog
I'm sleeping with the dog
I'm sleeping with the dog

I'm sleeping with the dog
Sleeping with the dog
I'm sleeping with the dog

I'm sleeping with the dog
Sleeping with the dog
I'm sleeping with the dog

I'm sleeping with the dog
Sleeping with the dog
Sleeping with the dog
