Dedicated to all the old dogs. Yeah, that means you.


Old dogs are the best dogs
they never bark at night
unless they hear a burglar
or think it's getting light
old dogs never hound you
they pick a comfy chair
and wait for you to wander by
and skritch them here and there

Old dogs are the best dogs
the best dogs through and through
and someday if i'm lucky
i'll be an old dog too

Old dogs are the best dogs
they really paid their dues
they climb up on the sofa
and help you watch the news
old dogs can remember
the way things used to be
they dream of chasing rabbits
and snore adorably

The best at all they do

Old dogs are the best dogs
they're never in a rush
not even if it's suppertime
or someone hollars mush
old dogs never worry
they're not afraid to leave
they only wish that they could stay
to comfort those who grieve

The best dogs tried and true
