Lyrics

My parents won't let me get the pet I want,
So I thought up a plan to help them change their minds.
I've been hitting the catalog hard,
Using and abusing my library card,
Digging up piles of books of a certain kind!

Nothing but dog books in my backpack
Nothing but dog books on my shelf
Books where the dog is the kid's best friend
Books where the kid gets the dog in the end
Dog books for my parents to read to me
Nothing but D-O-G

I began my plan with Pinkerton, Behave!
Then we read about Walter floating up to the sky.
We solved a case with Nate the Great and Sludge.
We shared an adventure with Henry and Mudge.
We'll be laughing at Hank the Cowdog through July!

Nothing but dog books in my backpack
Nothing but dog books on my shelf
Books where the dog is the kid's best friend
Books where the kid gets the dog in the end
Dog books for my parents to read to me
Nothing but D-O-G

Now I know I'm onto something when my mom sobs up a storm
as The Preacher calls Winn Dixie in the rain,
And I know I'm making progress when Old Yeller fights that wolf,
and my dad lets loose a tear he can't contain!

Nothing but dog books in my backpack
Nothing but dog books on my shelf
Books where the dog is the kid's best friend
Books where the kid gets the dog in the end
Dog books for my parents to read to me
Nothing but D-O-G
