Story

'Lie Down With Dogs' is a fun little morality play of a song. A hard rockin' electric blues tune, sort of in the vein of Jerry Reed or Tony Joe White but with more attitude... A Lot More!  “When you lie down with dogs, you wake up with fleas”

Lyrics

When I was a young boy… my papa told me son

Better watch who your trustin’… before the damage is done

It’s okay to pet that dog… but don’t you lay down

Cause’ when you wake up in the mornin’… you’ll be scratchin’ around

 

CHORUS:

Cause’ when you lie down with dogs… you wake up with flees

Better to be antisocial… than to wind up with a social disease

Walkin’ on the wrong side of the road

is bound to bring a young man to his knees

Cause’ when you lie down with dogs… you wake up with fleas.

There once was a fish who longed to make a big splash

Clean up the water and take out the trash

Made friends with a gator as a means to an ends

One thing that ole' fish forgot....

Gator ain't got no friends
