Lyrics

It’s been a long, hard day at work
My boss is tryin’ to be a jerk
But when I get home everything’s gonna be alright
'cuz my companion knows how to treat me right

When I pull in around 4
Walk up to that front door
Stick the key in the lock and turn it to the right
She’s layin’ on my bed and damn’, she’s ready to bite

When the tail is wagging ‘cuz the master just walked in the door
It’s time for a treat
You got to give the dog a bone

You know they call her Man’s Best Friend
She likes to move at my command
Lickin' and pawin' and shaking that tail for me
Sometimes I like to walk her
At times I take her off the leash

And if you’re ever needing a fix
She likes to show you all her tricks
Like playin’ with the ball and a game of hide and seek
The best trick of all is trying to make her speak

When the tail is wagging ‘cuz the master just walked in the door
It’s time for a treat
You got to give the dog a bone
