Song Squawk – Dogman

In the mid nineties, I had a little red Buick and a big ol’ bass box in the trunk, and would listen to “Christian Rock”, cranked to 11.

(What did you say?  Huh?  Can  you say that again, I didn’t hear you….)

I have gotten away from that genre for many reasons, the least of which may be a loss of hearing, but some songs have stuck with me over the decades.

The artist’s I listened to sought to reflect Scriptural teaching for the most part. They ranged from “preaching” pop culture religion to significant theological teaching. As I listened to the lyrics, I found some to be quite challenging.

To be honest, I listened because I could justify the rock beat with “sanctified lyrics”.

Occassionaly I will post a song, supply the lyrics and make a comment or two. If you decide to listen to the tune, turn the speaker down unless you are already deaf. Some of the songs tend to have a certain “volume” about them!


This post will consider the song

Dogman – by King’s X

Give me a dollar or give me fifty cents
Let me take it back, if that ain’t what I meant

Give me a coat or give me a bite
Give me a light bulb and make sure it’s bright

Give me the moon or give me everywhere
Give me some powder to spray up in the air
Or give me air

Let me take my thoughts away to think about another day
Remembering the times I pray to help me deal with me
To be the dogman

Give me some attention lend me your ear
Give me what to do and get me out of here

Give me a book give me something to read
Give me a horse race and give me who’s the lead

Let me take my thoughts away, to think about another day
Remembering the times I pray, to help me deal with me

To be the dogman
To be the dogman
To be the dogman
To be the dogman
To be the dogman
Dogman

All the sleeping never waking, all the leaves in need of raking
All the business undertaking, all my bones and muscles aching
Thoughts and mind are surely flaking, over luncheons hands are shaking
Surety of no mistaking, cars and horns and glasses breaking

Give me a color make it black or white
Give me a newspaper tell me if it’s right
Tell me won’t you

Give me a nail or give me a bat
Give me a skinny or give me a fat
Give me please give me

Remembering the times I pray, to let me take my thoughts away
To think about another day, to help me deal with me
To help me deal with me, yeah

To be the dogman
To be the dogman
Dogman
To be the dogman
To be the dogman

Oh to be an obedient dogman!

Take a listen!

Dogman – by King’s X
