If I was A Dog

If I was a dog

you'd still love me

You wouldn't put me out

alone at night

If I was a dog

you'd still pat me

on the head

If I was a dog

it'd be all right


But I ain't a dog

I'm a man

And that was why

it had to end

There's just one thing

I don't understand

Why I couldn't stay

your best friend

Sure, a dog

he might pee

on the carpet

and you might catch him

chewing up your stuff

But that don't mean you 

would not forgive him

'Cause being your dog

would be enough


If I was your dog

you'd still love me

You'd give me stuff to eat

and stroke my hair

If I was a dog

you'd let me sleep

up on your bed

If I was a dog

you'd still care

I concur. Most people do take better care of their pet than their spouse. "Now I wanna be your dog."--Iggy Pop.

This is really cute absent seriousness! Made me smile :-)

If meant seriously, I'd just point to the distinction of personal responsibility being much higher in humans than in animals. -Soulja4Alethia
