Lyrics:

Like An Old Dog Chasin' His Tail

Verse 1
Like An Old Dog Chasin' His Tail;
He ought to know better, ought to know he'll fail!
But he keeps goin' round and round,
Thinkin' any second he can run it down.
And just when it starts to slow,
His legs tell him they got no more go!
That's me, through and through.
I just can't seem to catch you.
I been lovin' you so long.
Don't know what I'm doin' wrong!

Chorus
It's like I'm tryin to cross the ocean in a pail,
Usin' my hankie for a sail!
I'm fishin' in a pond for a whale!
I'm Like An Old Dog Chasin' His Tail!

Verse 2
Like a kid on a merry-go-round;
'Cept he enjoys his ups and downs.
He's out on a cowboy guest!
I'm just hangin' on tryn' to do my best.
And just when I think we're a "go,"
My time is up the merry go round slows.
I never know what to do then;
I got to start all over again!
I been lovin' you so long!
Don't know what I'm doin' wrong!

Chorus
It's like I'm tryin' to cross the ocean in a pail,
Usin' my hankie for a sail!
I'm fishin' in a pond for a whale!
I'm Like An Old Dog Chasin' His Tail!

I been lovin' you so long!
Please tell me what I'm doin' wrong!
