#1.
E
You know my girl just called me up..and she 
                E7
woke me from my sleep.
    E
You should have heard the things she said..
    E
you know she hurt my feelings deep.
                      A
I'm going to buy me a dog.

CHORUS:AD LIB:
A                                              E
A dog?..a dog..Why? Why? Cause I need a friend now.

(Babe, you need all the friends you can get, I'm 

telling you.)
E                  A
I'm gonna buy me a dog..my girl, my girl don't love 
       B
me, no how..(Don't ruin my song, man..it's the only 

song I have!
The song was already ruined before it was wrote.)

#2.
E
She used to bring my newspaper..(you don't even know 

where it's at!)
E                      
Cause she knew where it was at..she used to keep me 
                  A                       E
so contented..but I can teach a dog to do that!

CHORUS:AD LIB:
E                  A
I'm gonna buy me a dog!
(You can't teach dogs to do that, you can only train 
elephants.)
A                     E
Cause I need a friend now..(I need a friend now, now,
yeah.)
E                  A
I'm gonna buy me a dog..
(A dog, here Rover, Fido, Spot..)
                                   B
my girl, my girl don't love me, no how.

(1,2,3..1234567..Hike!Hike!Hike!
I was late on that one.)
I just got back from Africa, ya know, I was playing cards 
with the natives..oh, Zulus?..No, I usually won, ha-ha.
I wish I had a glass of water..Why, are you thirsty?
No, I want to see if my neck leaks.
I'd buy a raccoon but John already has one..$35 bucks.
Where do I come in? Here?

CHORUS:AD LIB:
E                  A
I'm gonna buy me a dog..( dog..a dog, umm yeah.)
                       E
Cause I need a friend, now..(Yeah, yeah..Bop-bop-she-bop-bop- 
rama-lama-.)
E                  A                                       B
I'm gonna buy me a dog..my girl, my girl don't love me, no how.
(How-How-How now, brown cow?
(I think I'm gonna buy me a dog, yes sir..I'm gonna buy me 
a dog. If I was looking for a word to describe what I'm gonna buy
I think dog would be the word. Would it be dog? It would be dog.
Definitely dog.
It would come springing from my lips, dog..Boing, boing boing.
It would be springing! Is that it, Tommy?Can you turn it off please?
Can somebody open the door and let us out?
They're coming to take us away! Ha-ha, he-he, ho-ho.) (Fade.)
