  • Song Lyrics:
    Gonna Buy Me A Dog
    (Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart)

    You know my girl just called me up
    And she woke me from my sleep
    You should have heard the things she said
    You know she hurt my feelings deep.
    I’m gonna buy me a dog [a dog, a dog! why?]
    ’cause I need a friend now. [say, you need all the friends you can get]
    I’m gonna buy me a dog,
    My girl, my girl, don’t love me no how.

    She used to bring me my newspaper
    ’cause she knew where it was at.
    She used to keep me so contented.
    But I can teach a dog to do that.
    I’m gonna buy me a dog,
    ’cause I need a friend now
    I’m gonna buy me a dog,
    My girl, my girl, don’t love me no how.
