about

More satirical than autobiographical. Or as my friend Bob Z says, "It's epigrammatic!"

lyrics

There's a new guy in the White House
It's the same old shit at mine
There's a tyrant in the kitchen
And she gives me a hard time
She's bustin' my cojones,
Tramplin' on my pride
I'm sleeping in the doghouse
It's too damned cold inside.

At three o'clock this morning
She kicked me out of bed
With my liver full of moonshine
And my pencil full of lead
She really hurt my feelings
I'm a sensitive guy!
Now I'm sleeping in the doghouse
It's too damned cold inside.

If I want to play the guitar
and carry on all night
And sleep until the afternoon,
I think I have that right.
But my wife don't see it my way
She says get off your lazy ass
Now I've packed up all my instruments
And I'm looking for a place to crash.

Maybe someday she'll convince me
To get a nine to five
Earn an honest paycheck
and bathe from time to time
But for now I'm just enjoying life
One six pack at a time
I'm sleeping in the doghouse
It's too damned cold inside.

I'm sleeping in the doghouse,
It's too damned cold inside.
