lyrics

There was Rachel from South Carolina.
We'd play house.
She'd never let me be the husband,
but she'd let me be the dog.

Then there was Michelle from Cedar Lake.
She was a preacher's kid.
There was no chance for us
just like a Buddhist Lazarus.

Then there was Erin.
Her momma wouldn't let her be with me
because I played Pokemon
and watched too much TV.

Then there was Cynthia.
She was from Argentina.
She was in love with Ramon,
but we'd talk on the phone.

Then there was Megan from America.
She was in love with Chase, Spencer, Derek, David and Andy,
but never with me.

Then there was drugs.
Sweet drugs.
So many drugs.
So many drugs.

That's when I knew
I could never be the husband.
I can only be the dog.
I can only be the dog.

Then there was Bailey from Frankenmuth
with the big ol' boobies
and the parents who really took to me.
But it wasn't meant to be.

Then there was Mary
with the crooked teeth.
Four days til she left for Nanjing.
她 不 是 你 的 朋 友

Then there was Jessi
with the husband in Louisiana.
She hit me in the face with a glass fifth
and keys in her damn fist.
I said, "Fuck this."

That's when I knew
I could never be the husband.
I can only be the dog.
I can only be the dog.

Then there was music.
There was music.
Sweet sweet music.
Music.

Then there was Bodhi.
Sweet sweet Bodhi.
Music and Bodhi.
Music and Bodhi.

That's when I knew
I don't wanna be the husband.
I just wanna be the dog.
I just wanna be the dog.
