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 housefly 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, it's 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 dusty
The housekeeping suffers but what do you care?
Who minds a few nose prints and a little more hair?
So let's keep a puppy, 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.
Is it worth it you wonder? Are you caught in a trap?
Then that favorite comes up and climbs in you lap
Her look says you're special and you know that you will
Keep all the critters in spite of the bill.
The whole thing seems worth it, the dogs are your life
They're charming and funny and offset the strife.
