Back to What Would You Say lyrics

What Would You Say

Up and down the puppies' hair
Fleas and ticks jump everywhere
'Cause of original sin

Down the hill fell Jack and Jill
And you came tumbling after
'Cause of original sin

Rip away the tears
Drink a hope for happy years
And you may find
A lifetime's passed you by

What would you say
to a monkey on a string
to a doggie on a chain
What would you say

I was there when the bear
Ate his head, thought it was a candy
Everyone goes in the end

Knock knock on the door
Who's it for, nobody in here
Look in the mirror my friend

I don't understand at best
I cannot speak for all the rest
In the morning rise a lifetime's passed me by

What would you say
(Dont' drop the big one)
to a monkey on a string
(Don't cut my life line)
to a doggie on a chain
(Don't bite the mailman)
What would you say

Every dog has its day every day has its way
Of being forgotten- "Mom it's my birthday"

What would you say
(Dont' drop the big one)
to a monkey on a string
(Don't cut my life line)
to a doggie on a chain
(Don't bite the mailman)
What would you say
