Lyrics

NOTE TO TAXI DISPATCH!! I am finishing a full band recording of this song with a professional vocalist on Monday November 5, 2007, and will upload a new mp3 Monday afternoon.... wanted to let you know, just in case any reviewer started listening to submissions before the 5:00 deadline. Wait for the new demo!!

Thanks. Will


The Dog Don't Know Sit

I've gotta mutt named Amos; he's as sweet as sweet tea
What he lacks in proper breeding he makes up in personality
A more loyal friend, you will never find
But when it comes to what I say, he doesn't pay no mind

That dog won't hunt, that dog won't come
He refuses to do what I tell him to
Just stares up at me looking dumb
He don't know how to shake, he won't fetch, he won't stay
Lord, it pains me to admit the dog don't know sit

I ain't saying he's clueless; he's got gumption galore
He can drag a roasted turkey twice his size
From the counter to the kitchen door
He can sniff out any dead thing from here to Birmingham
And there's one special trick he does just because he can

But that dog won't hunt, that dog won't come
He refuses to do what I tell him to
Just stares up at me looking dumb
He don't know how to shake, he won't fetch, he won't stay
Lord, it pains me to admit, the dog don't know sit

Well, you know what they say 'bout people and their pets
As time goes by, they look and act alike
Pretty soon, you got a matching set
Well, I don't like taking orders; I get set in my ways
So if my dog takes after me, I reckon that explains

Why the dog won't hunt, that dog won't come
Why he refuses to do what I tell him to
And just stares up at me looking dumb
He don't know how to shake, he won't fetch, he won't stay
Still, it pains me to admit
The dog don't know sit
The dog don't know sit
The dog don't know sit
The dog don't know sit
