One More Dog

One Dog Is No Trouble And Two Are So Funny 
The Third One Is Easy, The Fourth One’s A Honey 

The Fifth Is Delightful, The Sixth One’s A Breeze 
You Find You Can Live With A Houseful With Ease 

So How ‘Bout Another? Would You Really Dare? 
They’re Really Quite Easy, But Oh Lord, The Hair! 

With Dogs On The Sofa And Dogs On The Bed 
And Crates In The Kitchen… No Bother, you said!

They’re Really No Trouble, Their Manners Are Great 
What’s Just One More Dog And One More Little Crate? 

The Sofa Is Hairy, The Windows Are Crusty 
The Floor Is All Footprints, The Furniture’s Dusty 

The Housekeeping Suffers But What Do You Care? 
Who Minds A Few Nose prints And A Little More Hair? 

So Get a new Dog, You Can Always Find Room 
And A Little More Time For The Dust Cloth And Broom 

There’s Hardly A Limit To The Dogs You Can Add 
The Thought Of A Cutback Sure Makes You Feel Sad 

Each One Is Special, So Useful, So Funny 
The Food Bill Grows Larger, You Owe The Vet Money 

Your Folks Never Visit, Few Friends Come To Stay 
(Except Other Dog Folks Who Live The Same Way) 

Your Lawn Has Now Died And Our Shrubs Are Dead, Too 
Your Weekends Are Busy, You’re Off With Your Crew 

There’s Dog Food And Vitamins, Training And Shots 
And Treats, Beds and Toys, Which Cost Lots and Lots 

Is It Worth It, You Wonder? Are You Caught In A Trap? 
Then That Favorite Comes Up And Climbs In Your Lap 

His Look Says “You’re Special”, And You Know That You Will
Keep All of The Critters, In Spite Of The Bill 

Winter’s A Hassle, The Dogs Love It True,
They Must Have Their Walks, Tho’ You’re Numb And You’re Blue. 

Late Evening Is Awful, You Scream And You Shout 
At Dogs On The Sofa Who Refuse To Go Out 

The Dogs And The Kids, The Mess, And The Thrills 
The Work And The Worry, The Pressure, The Bills 

The Whole Thing Seems Worth It, The Dogs Are Your Life 
They’re Charming And Funny And Offset The Strife 

Your Lifestyle Has Changed, Things Just Won’t Be The Same 
Yes Those Dogs Are Addictive And So’s The Dog Game!
