Fillin Station Dog

I’m a fillin’ station dog at the end of a chain

A fillin’ station dog keepin’ outta the rain

I’m a fillin’ station dog, got my tongue hangin’ out

A fillin’ station dog - that’s what I’m about

 

I’m a fillin’ station dog tryin’ not to get kicked

I’m always lookin’ for somethin’ I can lick

I’m a fillin’ station dog ’mid the tires an’ the grease

A fillin’ station dog lookin’ for my peace

 

I’m a fillin’ station dog with one little wish

For some shade from a tree an’ some water in my dish

Some friendly conversation, won’t you throw me a bone?

A warm, tattered blanket when I’m sleepin’ all alone

 

A pat on my head, every once in a while

A scratch on my neck, a friendly kinda smile

So, I can lay my tired nose down on my tired paws

And take a little doze, because that’s what I do

‘Cause I’m a fillin’ station dog

 

Then, I’ll give up a couple o’ bars to the moon

I know she likes my tune

I got a low and throaty

Lazy kinda croon

 

Da, dahtn’ da da da dadada...

 

Then, I’ll give up a couple o’ bars to the moon

I know she likes my tune

I got a low and throaty

Lazy kinda croon

 

I’m a fillin’ station dog with one little wish

For some shade from a tree an’ some water in my dish

Some friendly conversation, won’t you throw me a bone?

A warm, tattered blanket ’cause I’m sleepin’ all alone

 

I’m a fillin’ station dog with not much to do

I’m a fillin’ station dog, not much use to you

I’m a fillin’ station dog ’mid the tires an’ the grease

A fillin’ station dog, lookin’ for my peace

 

Yeah, I’m a fillin’ station dog

I’m a fillin’ station dog

Yeah, I’m a fillin’ station dog
