Wag The Dog  Mark Knopfler

[F]Now you can do the wooly bully  [E]
[A5]But can you pull the wooly wooly
Can you wag can you wag the dog
[D7]     [Bm/5-]        [Bb]      [A]                  
D9(no5)
You got the shimmy and the hustle
It's all the rage downtown
Yeh you don't have to have the muscle
To get into the mess around
[F]Cos' you can do the wooly bully [E]
[A5]But can you pull the wooly wooly
Can you wag can you wag the dog
[D7]     [Bm/5-]        [Bb]      [A]                  
[D7]So make him sit make him stay
Come to heel go play
Roll him over lie still
Make him go kill attaboy D7 Bm/5-
[Bb]Wag that dog b[A]aby

D9(no5)
You have had the duck and mashed potato
Funky chicken on a roll
Move on up a little later
To the monkey and the stroll
[F]Now you can do the wooly bully  [E]
[A5]But can you pull the wooly wooly
Can you wag can you wag the dog D7 Bm/5-
[Bb]Mmm wa[A]g the dog!

[D7]Now go bow bow wow wow
Now go woof woof woof woof

[D7]Yeh that's right wag th[Bm/5-]e dog
The locomotion boogaloo
The hully gully and the limbo too
Wag that dog
Yeh hitchhike for me baby
Now we're barefootin'
The funky funky penguin
That's the bug and that's the frug
Yeh but can you wag
Wag the dog can you wag the dog
Wag the dog can you wag the dog

All along the sound you can hear a rythm guitar played by Richard
Bennett (maybe on his Gretsch). This track mostly features something like that:

Guitars:

Mark Knopfler plays a Gibson ES335 of 1958.
On the studio version, solos are played with a wah pedal, probably a Vox.
On the live version, solos are played by bluesman and friend Mike Henderson on a
Danelectro Silvertone with a Fender fixed bridge and ultra heavy strings that give
this unique sound.
