I get a lot of fun,There's an awful lot of fun in the fun-ctioning of human love.I'm just a hound, but I have been around.Madam, I have found, I've always found a jestIn the gestures of romance.There was a lady once who fell in love and taught her doggyOf the high romance with which her life was now infused.He was faintly puzzled, for he found her notions foggy;It must've been the language that the lady used.I'm just a dog. I wonder what the heck,Well really, what the heck - this hecstasy of human love.I'm just a brute, I couldn't care a hoot.Madam I'm a dog and I see through the mistThe mysteries of romance.You must confess it's messy and a bit unnecessaryThe preliminary etiquette would bore me stiff.I'm inclined to find the ceremony rather phoney:Courtship between dogs consists in one swift sniff.I'm just a dog and I dislike the cant.Why is there so much cant in these canticles of human love?I'm just a brute. I couldn't care a hoot.Madam, I'm a dog and I don't get the mess,The message of romance.While you're contemplating it, awaiting it and hating itAnd overcomplicating it, it's bound to pall.Dogs see much less in it, they get cracking and begin it.It's a matter of a minute and then up tails all.I'm just a dog and I dislike the con.Why is there so much con in this constancy of human love?I'm just a brute. I couldn't care a hoot.Madam,I'm a dog and I don't like the lie,The lifetime of romance.She was marvellous, was Isabel, and it was thrillingWhen I met her in the corporation park one day.So without a fuss we had a smell and she was willingAnd so there and then I put her in the family way.I'm just a dog and I prefer the sin,By far the biggest sin, the cynical approach to love.I'm just a hound, but I have been around.Madam I have found, I've always found a dogIn the dogmas of romance.
