0:11 I’d like to dedicate this next song to Carmelo, who was put to sleep a couple of days ago, because he got too old. But apparently he was a very nice dog and he always let the cat sleep in the dog bed.

0:28 ♫ (Dog panting noise) Heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh. ♫

0:32 ♫ I'm just a'walking my dog, singing my song, strolling along. ♫

0:38 ♫ Yeah, it's just me and my dog, catching some sun. We can't go wrong. ♫

0:46 ♫ My life was lonely and blue. ♫

0:49 ♫ Yeah, I was sad as a sailor, ♫

0:53 ♫ I was an angry 'un too. ♫

0:56 ♫ Then there was you -- appeared when I was entangled with youth and fear, ♫

1:03 ♫ and nerves jingle jangled, vermouth and beer were getting me mangled up. ♫

1:09 ♫ But then I looked in your eyes ♫

1:12 ♫ and I was no more a failure. ♫

1:15 ♫ You looked so wacky and wise. ♫

1:19 ♫ And I said, "Lord, I'm happy, 'cause I'm just a'walking my dog, ♫

1:24 ♫ catching some sun. We can't go wrong." ♫

1:28 ♫ Yeah, it's just me and my dog, singing our song, strolling along. ♫

1:34 ♫ 'Cause I don't care about your hating and your doubt, ♫

1:37 ♫ and I don't care what the politicians spout. ♫

1:41 ♫ If you need a companion, why, just go out to the pound, ♫

1:44 ♫ and find yourself a hound, and make that doggie proud, ♫

1:47 ♫ 'cause that's what it's all about. ♫

1:54 ♫ (Dog panting noise) Heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh. ♫

1:57 ♫ My life was tragic and sad. ♫

2:01 ♫ I was the archetypal loser. ♫

2:04 ♫ I was a pageant gone bad. ♫

2:08 ♫ And then there was you -- on time, and wagging your tail ♫

2:13 ♫ in the cutest mime that you was in jail. ♫

2:16 ♫ I said, "Woof, be mine!" and you gave a wail and then ♫

2:22 ♫ I was no longer alone. ♫

2:24 ♫ And I was no more a boozer. ♫

2:27 ♫ We'll make the happiest home. ♫

2:30 ♫ And I said, "Lord, I'm happy, 'cause I’m just a'walking my dog, ♫

2:34 ♫ singing my song, strolling along." ♫

2:38 ♫ Yeah, it's just me and my dog, catching some sun. We can't go wrong, ♫

2:46 ♫ 'cause I don't care about your hating and your doubt, ♫

2:48 ♫ and I don’t care what the politicians spout. ♫

2:52 ♫ If you need a companion, why, just go out to the pound, ♫

2:55 ♫ and find yourself a hound, and make that doggie proud, ♫
