The Black Dog
He’s the bain of my life
Always there, always watching
Just sat in the corner causing me strife
Always with me, my constant shadow
Oh, what can I do for me and my wife
Black dog, black dog, what do you want?
Black, dog, black dog, why don’t you leave?
Black dog, black dog, what have I done?
Black dog, black dog, what do I have to do?
I know he’s there
I can feel his stare
He tries to control me
He causes me despair
He celebrates my sadness with unbridled glee
But black dog, I know what you want
But black, dog, you don’t have to leave leave
But black dog, I know what I have done
But black dog, I know what to do
You can be there
But I will pay no attention
You can watch me
But I do not care
You have no power
You are in detention
My emotions are mine
So sit quietly in your lair
Yes, black dog, you have no purpose
Yes, black dog, you are mine to control
Yes, black dog, you are so small
Yes, black dog, put on your lead
Black dog, black dog, where are you now?
