about

A typically canine reaction to a quintessentially human situation.

lyrics

sitting in a bar nothing much to do,
a beer in my hand but it tastes like glue
I guess I’ll be leaving pretty soon
might take a drive in the countryside,
find a place in the bush where I can hide
and spend the night howling at the moon
somehow I’m on my own again, the bitch has left me for some fat baboon
the fire just won’t turn back on again
gonna spend the night howling at the moon, at the moon
gonna spend the night howling at the moon

no money in my pocket, no bird in my hand,
the cream has gone sour and my ship ain’t coming in
I cannot get back to my blue lagoon
just like a hound alone on a hill, nose to the sky, I suppose I will
spend the night howling at the moon
somehow I’m on my own again, the bitch has left me for some fat baboon
the fire just won’t turn back on again
gonna spend the night howling at the moon, at the moon
gonna spend the night howling at the moon

I'm running out of gas and the rent ain’t paid,
I can’t win at cards and I can’t get laid
there ain’t no air in my balloon
if I had fifty cents for every time she left,
she’d be crying poor and I’d be laughing rich
but for now, I’m howling at the moon
somehow I’m on my own again, the bitch has left me for some fat baboon
the fire just won’t turn back on again
gonna spend the night howling at the moon, at the moon
gonna spend the night howling at the moon, at the moon
gonna spend the night howling at the moon
