So long and farewell to my puppydog friends
We've had some good times, but here's where it ends
I don't wanna chase rabbits, and I don't want to play
I just came here to tell you that I"m going away
We've been running in circles. Enough is enough.
Staying around is just ruff, ruff, ruff

So long, doggies -- doggies, goodbye.
I'm going away, and I'm telling you why:
I'm tired of barking up the wrong, wrong tree.
I've got places to go, and places to see
And that's why
I'm saying so long, doggies, goodbye

Oh, why do you hound dogs just howl at the moon?
I'm leaving today, and I'm changing my tune
I'm looking for something, I don't know what,
So starting today, I'm a traveling mutt
I've got to move on, for it's sad but it's true
I'm six years old, but I feel forty-two

Oh, So long, doggies -- doggies, goodbye
I'm going away, and I'm telling you why:
I'm tired of barking up the wrong, wrong tree
I've got places to go, and places to see
and that's why
I'm saying so long, doggies, goodbye

Ah, you can't have respect for a dog that begs
A dog needs to stand on its own four legs
I'm not looking for someone to throw me a bone
I'm my own dog now, I can make it alone

Well, I'm leaving my collar. I'm leaving my tags
I'm bringing a dream and a tail that wags
My heart is warm and my nose is still cold
I want to get around before I grow too old
I'm taking my leave, and I'm showing you how:
When you make an exit, take a bow wow wow

Oh, so long, doggies -- doggies, goodbye
I'm going away, and I'm telling you why:
I'm tired of barking up the wrong, wrong tree
I've got places to go, and places to see.
I'm a lone dog rover, and I have to run free
I'm my own dog rover. I belong to me.

No more digging through cans. I've got bigger plans
No garbage. Bone voyage
So long. Dog gone.
