It starts with me, a lone wolf guy
I met a pretty woman with water-green eyes
Daughters made four but the missing cog
Was a big black, big black, bushy-tailed dog

He came one June with checkered past
He cleaned a bone and dirtied a bath
The toothy white grin was no façade
On the lips of the big black bushy-tailed dog

BRIDGE
We’ve got more than just a pal
Use your ears and hear about our
Canine family values
What we had can’t compare with now
And when the moon is bright
We hold our faces to the light
And howl

We take our licks, we rise above
Guided by the hand of unconditional love
Lessons well-learned from the teacher’s log
Of the big black, big black, bushy-tailed dog

BRIDGE

I’ve found my pack, a family guy
Who wed a pretty woman with water-green eyes
Daughters wrapped up in the fuzzy fog
Of the big black, big black, bushy-tailed dog
Lessons well-learned from the teacher’s log
Of the big black, big black, bushy-tailed dog
