Lyric Dirty Water Dog


No candidate would I support
His platform could I endorse
Another accomplice slinging dirt
Campaign promises falling short
I don t belong to any race
Pledge allegiance to a place
No borderline in the sand I d trace
I m just a sucker for a pretty face
Uncomfortable in the realm of the political
Position s always been a little left of cynical
I m fundamentally for the individual
Preoccupied purely with the physical

When heavy is the weight of the world
And the river runs a little too deep
Like a hound dog chasing a bird
Sometimes a certain tom s gotta peep
I m a peek-a-boy, looking at girls
And I think I like, I think I like, I like what I see

I don t wanna find religion
Or another man s opinion
I Can t choose what s not my decision
When there s only one under the sun
There s no need to be denied
Chew before swallowing pride
I want to live so let me die
Oh by the way, what s your sign?

Can t comprehend the meaning of the metaphysical
I d rather leave that to your so-called intellectual
But what I do know I know feels only natural
I m just a red-blooded heterosexual

When heavy is the weight of the world
And the river runs a little too deep
Like a dirty water doggin a bird
Sometimes a certain tom s he gotta peep
I m a peek-a-boy, looking at girls
And I think I like, I think I like, I like what I see

(Guitar Solo)

When heavy is the weight of the world
And the river runs a little too deep
Like a dirty water doggin a bird
Sometimes a certain tom s he gotta peep
I m a peek-a-boy, looking at girls
And I think I like, like a hound dog, chasin a bird

And I think I like
A dirty water dog
And I think I like, I think I like, I like what I see
