Lyrics

Well I'm sitting in this airport all alone tonight
Not much to do but read old magazines
I have to spend the night
Cause my plane is in the fog
I should miss my family
But I miss my dog

Well he never complains about that boring food I give him
He don't say much when things are going wrong
I know it don't seem right
As I'm sittin' here tonight
I should miss my family
But I miss my dog

He is homely as a tree stump and his ears are long and gray
And his hair is on my furniture to stay
With paws like frying pans
His breath can kill a man
But he's the reason I am here today
So I know it don't seem right
As I'm sittin' here tonight
I should miss my family
But I miss my dog

An Old man came up to me
As my tears were flowing down
Said "Son, do you miss your one and only?'
Sir you don't understand
I don't miss woman, child or man
The fact is I miss my old hound
So I know it don't seem right
As I'm sittin' here tonight
I should miss my family
But I miss my dog

That's how this song must end
As an ode to man's best friend
I should miss my family
But I miss my dog
