Dog for a Day

Humming-CD-cover-600Words and music by Jeffrey Pepper Rodgers I'm rushing off into the morning Eyes hanging down Waiting for the coffee to slap me around I hear a thumping on the sidewalk And look up to see a dog face smile I'm off to work as he naps for a while And then I'm planning a career or I'm planning for play Planning for a mortgage on some distant day You know I'm planning for a kid and for dinner Planning to plan no more When I hear paws scratching at the door Chorus If I could shed my skin Alter the shape I'm in Fill out with fur and grow a long tail If I could be that way I would be a happy man A dog for a day I'd scare a squirrel to a treetop And mangle your shoes Chase a stick into the water or simply refuse I'd bark my head off if I wanted Whenever I heard the siren call Or I would sleep, contented, through it all Chorus So I am stuck inside my body And with my two feet But there are human consolations here In the front seat No, I never have a collar or dog chow And I'm allowed on the bed But I wonder what my life would be instead Chorus
