Econoline - Dog Song

how do you make your dog so strong
find a car tire and tie it on
to his collar, then make him pull it along
that way your dog'll be strong

how do you make your dog want to fight
keep him hungry and keep his chain tight
then let him loose on the levee tonight
wave a bloody rag and he'll fight

how do you make your dog stay dumb
don't let him learn from anyone
don't let him do nothing but bark and run
that way your dog'll stay dumb

i got a good dog
i call him black
he don't let go
when he put on a bite
i lost some money
but i'll get it back
when i lay my bet tonight

what do you do if your dog is too meek
tie him to a pole, don't feed him for a week
then when you throw him a piece of red meat
see if that dog is so meek

what do you do if your dog don't obey you
kick him hard like a mean old stray cur
and if that don't work, give him away for
it ain't no good if your dog don't obey you

how do you make a man like a dog
hell that's easy as falling off a log
just do what i told you in this song
and any man will be your dog

i got a good dog
i call him black
He don't let go
when he put on a bite
i lost some money
but I'll get it back
when i lay my bet tonight

how do you make your dog so strong
find a car tire, make him pull it along
but be sure and teach him right from wrong
'cause your dog gonna eat you if it gets too strong
