A lonely old man buys a dog
Bought a dog a year ago,

Thought id' be some company ya know.

Needed some noise and scuttle in the home,

Wife's been gone and I'm so alone.


Thinking bout the trouble I'm in for,

Cleaning up the messes on the floor.

Feeding n' grooming, worming n' shots

Costing me more then I even gots.


It's been a year now and trouble he be,

But I got more then that, I got loyalty.

I got a friend now tried and true,

Got all that when I bought Billy Blue.
