Bark at the Moon

Well, you know I’m not the jealous kind
I wasn’t born with a wicked mind
I’m not gonna waste my whole life cryin’
Like I’ve done time after time

Its all a game, you know the score
You always play for keeps
Til you win it all, by then you’re in too deep

I didn’t fall asleep last night
This time I know we’re through
You shot me down with friendly fire
I won’t be singin’ the blues

It seems to me your crazy schemes
Have all caught up with you
Left you chasing monkeys ‘round the zoo

These dog days weren’t made for a cat like me
I’d rather be smiling from a tree
Once I met Bojangles ... he sang a touching tune
It’ll make you feel much better
Try barking at the moon

The dominos were all set up
A feather knocked ‘em down
Good fortune smiles on those who wait
But, you have to wear your crown

Well, I’m not wrong, its just not right
I won’t burn a midnight pyre
All we have is smoke without a fire<

These dog days weren’t made for a cat like me
When I’d rather be smiling from a tree
Once I met Bojangles ... he sang a touching tune
It’ll make you feel much better
Try barking at the moon
