When they’ve given you a salary, pretend you’ll dance all night
I forget what they have done to me-- I’m sure it was all right
I’m sure they’ll all have fun for me-- but pretty soon they’ll run from me
But carefully so they are only barely out of sight
And I’ll soak up all their grimaces when they get back
Cause one of their ladies has a fabulous rack
Is that the beginning or the end of my life?
Man protects dog, dog protects wife
Take it with a grain of salt-- there’s nothing you can’t lose
And if somebody’s arms will guard you does it matter whose?
As long as all the jobs get done and all the cracks get filled
No one will care who did the work and whose grey blood was spilled
Don’t cry for who you love-- romance is not your style
And if you have to break my heart then say it with a smile
My fate is unescapable, but luckily I’m capable
And though the end result is bad, the effort was worthwhile
We all have sat in the empty ranch waiting for something new
You’ll never give me what I want, but then again that’s you
Dodging the bullet to get hit with the gun
When the son protects the mother, who protects the son?
Is this my introduction to a whole new life?
Wife protects dog, dog protects wife
