The Girls and the Dogs  Scott Walker

The Girls And The Dogs
The [G]girls are as fast as a [Gmaj7]game
Are as [G6]bright as a flame and you're always to [Am]blame
The girls are as pink as the [Am7]light
And as dark as the [Am6]night and they're always [Bb]right
[Bb]The girls are as cold as the [Bbmaj7]sphinx
Always dreaming of [Bb6]minks, they drive you to [Cm]drink
The girls are as soft as a [Cm7]sigh
That whispers good-[Cm6]bye and leaves you to [D]cry
But the [Em7]dogs, well, they're only [A]dogs
Just wagging their [Em7]tails as they watch it [F#m]end
Oh, the [Em7]dogs, well, they're only [A]dogs
And maybe that's [A7]why they're man's best [D]friend
The girls can make you feel cold
Can make you feel old, an antique to be sold
The girls they play with your heart
They tear you apart, you're never too smart
The girls they throw you from towers
They'll whip you with flowers it depends on the hours
The girls eill treat you like trash or let you be brash
It depends on your cash
But the dogs don't depend on a thing
They just lick your face when they see it end
Oh, the dogs don't depend on a thing
And maybe that's why they're man's best friend
The girls you know that they are vain
They will poison your brain, they will drive you insane
The girls will laugh at your jokes
How they love the coat on (???) but it is all a hoax
The girls are still making dates
They still making you wait and they say you are late
The girls are yours for a throw (?)
At least you think so, ah but you will never know
The dogs, well you know the dogs
They lift up a leg as they see it end
The dogs well you know the dogs
And maybe that's why they're man's best friend
The girls they're not what they seem
They all have a scheme, they call it a dream
The girls are as hot as they please
And you're down on your knees with the greatest of ease
The girls say you're on the right track
Then they take it all back, tie it up in a sack
The girls they will give it of course
But they give with such force that it gives you remorse
But the dogs they give nothing at all
They just lift a leg as they watch it end
Oh, the dogs, they give nothing at all
And that's the reason why they're man's best friend
And [Em7]yet it's because of the g[Bm]irls when they've knocked us ab[C]out
And our tears want to shout that we kick the dogs ou[G]t[Gmaj7] [G6] [G7] [G] [G7] [G]
