Lyrics

That dog that you got now is not the one you used to
That dog that you got now is not the one you used to
That dog that you got now is not the one you used to
That dog that you got is just the one you got

Yesterday we went out and got caught in the rain
The man got you so freaked out
That you just called him deranged
He turned up his palm and said,
“Mam, can you spare some change?”
You retracted your mission, you forgot your refrain

That dog that you got now is not the one you used to
That dog that you got now is not the one you used to
That dog that you got now is not the one you used to
That dog that you got is just the one you got

The man stood there preaching in his portable booth
Claiming all of his teachings paradoxical-proof
Points to words up on the wall as signs of arrogant youth
Placed his hand on your forearm and then recited this truth

Nothing never ever, lasts forever-ever
Nothing ever ever, lasts forever-ever

That dog that you got now is not the one you used to
That dog that you got now is not the one you used to
That dog that you got now is not the one you used to
That dog that you got is just one you got

On the way back home you threw a shoe at my head
Kicked the dog and groin who dared to lay where you tread
Swore that I would not again feel the pleasure of you bed
Placed my hands on my forehead and this is all that I said

Nothing never ever, lasts forever-ever
Nothing ever ever, lasts forever-ever

Don’t fall all about now, walk tall like you used to
Don’t fall all about now, walk tall like you used to
Don’t fall all about now, walk tall like you used to
Don’t fall all about now, walk tall

Please Man, can you now spare some,
Can you spare some change to believe in?
Please Mam, can you now spare some,
Can you spare some change to believe in?
