Bulldog Blues

Story Behind The Song

Jim Kaufman told stories of his life to pop hit songwriters Dick Wagner and Alan Gordon. Jim's wife goes out of town on business ("You say you're a consultant. I still don't know what that means!" And Jim and the bulldog just hang together --lyin' around -- till she comes back to town.

Song Description

Comical reflections and commentary on life alone with the Bulldog. When my honey goes away, it's just me and the Bulldog hangin' around. "Lyin' around in my old blue jeans," takin' a ride into town..."I sing to the Bulldog, and he sings back at me." "We need the money, but I need my honey too!" Fun, funny and engaging lyrics and music. TOP music session players and songwriters make this a hot (and very musical) recording.

Lyrics

Bulldog Blues

Woke up this morning
Bulldog hid my shoes
Went for the paper there was drool all over the news
If he could open up a bottle
The bulldog'd prob'ly drink all my booze
Ten days a month you're down in New Orleans
You say you're a consultant, I still don't know what that means
Well I'm singing to the bulldog, he's singing back at me

We need the money, honey, but I need my honey too
Yeah we need the money honey, but I need my honey, too
The sun is going down and I got the bulldog blues

Flat broke, no green
Lying around in my old blue jeans
Since you went away
It's just an ordinary day
I wake up, I lie down
Me and the dog take a ride into town
No one's around it's just an ordinary day

They told me 88 keys could open up a lot of doors
Well I been working on this song since 1994
And now everybody tells me they don't play this kind of music anymore
Two guys in bow ties came by to witness me,
They talked their way in,
Telling me what life really means.
The bulldog ran 'em off
Cause he was raised a Nazerene.


We need the money, honey, but I need my honey too
Yeah we need the money honey, but I need my honey, too
The sun is going down and I got the bulldog blues

Flat broke, no green
Lying around in my old blue jeans
Since you went away
It's just an ordinary day
I wake up, I lie down
Me and the dog take a ride into town
No one's around it's just an ordinary day

We need the money, honey, but I need my honey too
Yeah we need the money honey, but I need my honey, too
The sun is going down and I got the bulldog blues

Flat broke, no green
Lying around in my old blue jeans
Since you went away
It's just an ordinary day
I wake up, I lie down
Me and the dog take a ride into town
No one's around it's just an ordinary day
Since you went away it's just an ordinary day
