Lyrics
Sir Barks A-Lot
© 2014 Sahlen-Starburst

I met him one night by the old railroad tracks
I gave him a wink but I never looked back
How could I have known he'd have followed me home?
In search of some friendship and maybe a bone
(Pre-Chorus)
My good buddy, you moved in with me
My sweet pal, its true love I see
(Chorus)
And now all my days are filled with fine walks?
Beside me at night it's as if you could talk
We romp and we play and I brush your coarse hair
Oh how my life's changed now that you're here
Sir Barks A-lot the mutt of my dreams
Sir Barks A-lot the mutt of my dreams

My old cardboard box is just large enough
To give us the shelter we treasure so much
A hobo's best friend, our time is our own
My daring protector, I'll find you a bone

(Pre-Chorus)
(Chorus)

(Bridge)
May this never end, our friendship's so rare
Homeless we may be, but we don't care
You give me a bark licks my face playfully
Holding each other in sweet harmony

(Chorus)
