Ain't Gonna Be Your Dog

When we’re out on the town, you parade me around
Like a poodle dog on a string
When we get home, you lock me out
I guess that pedigree don’t mean a thing

Gonna get my suitcase, coat and hat
And walk right out that door
I’m all done steppin’ and fetchin’
Ain’t gonna be your dog no more

Ain’t gonna be your dog - Lord, I ain’t gonna be your dog
Ain’t gonna be no hound for you to kick around
Ain’t gonna be your dog no more

When we first met, you told all your friends
I was the fire that lit your torch
Nowadays, when they come to visit with you
You make me stay out on the porch

I’m gonna get my 44 pistol
Put you right down on the floor
I may wind up penitentiary bound
But, I ain’t gonna be your dog no more

Ain’t gonna be your dog - Lord, I ain’t gonna be your dog
Ain’t gonna be no hound for you to kick around
Ain’t gonna be your dog no more
