JUST LIKE WILD PONIES IN A PEN

Tho’ it’s been years & years
Images of you keep coming back to me my dear
I still can't control them, I still can’t tame them,
Memories of you keep surrounding me again
Bucking like wild ponies in a pen

& Tho’ it’s been years, there u are my dear
Standing just across the room,
Brushing your long blonde hair before your full-length mirror
Then turning & smiling at me & suddenly
Sitting down on the bed right next to me
Once again, as you did then--
Babe, you always knew just how & when--
To start my heartbeats
Bucking like wild ponies in a pen

& Tho’ it’s been years
That’s just for openers
Memories of you multiply, there‘s more of you each day
You surround me Babe, you outnumber me
Have Mercy Babe, have Mercy--
I thought we were friends!--
But there’s the sound of thundering hoofbeats again
Bucking like wild ponies in a pen

DOGETTE

Dogette Dogette where'd u get that crazy name
u musta been a cute baby girl
but they named you doggy all the same
u make me crazy with everything you do
Dogette darling lemme tell you about u

Dogette lives beneath my roof
Dogette eats my food
Dogette & I fight all night
we're the pride of the neighborhood
a local model for everything that's good

Hey Dogette where'd u get that crazy name
u musta been a cute baby girl
but they named you doggy all the same

Dogette Dogette in the back seat of a my car
Dogette with the college boys in the back room of a bar
Dogette Dogette some nights I look on you from afar
Like u was a movie star

Dogette Dogette just like a hollywood celebrity
some nights you're never alone that I can see
Dogette you even told me
you marched with enough men just last month
to recruit a small army
Dogette I won't be disappointed if next time we meet my sweet
you don't remember me
Dogette Dogette you're beautiful all the same
Hey Dogette tell me where'd u get that crazy name
