Dat’s Life Doggie Wednesday

When you’re down and out

and you have

little energy and will

even to shout

just take heed of what

little Frankie “the Hotdog” Sinsnoutra,

old red eyes,

would often soulfully bark and howl……

(Translated, of course…)



Dat’s life (dat’s life)

Dat’s watt them people do say

You’re struttin’ high in April

Pissin’ down in May

But I know I gotta lick my paws

When I’m back in the game

Back chewin’ socks and lickin’ my balls!!


I do say dat’s life (dat’s life)

And as funny as them fleas

Some dogs get their kicks

Lickin’ sour cream topped with cream cheese

But I just don’t let it, let it get me down

‘Cause this fine old doggie world, well, it just keeps spinnin’ around

I’ve been a hand puppet, a puppy, a Pittsburgh Pirate

A pawn and Larry King

I’ve thrown up … been pissed on … over and out

And I know dis one thing

Each time I find myself flat on my snout

I pick myself up, wipe myself off, and get back

To bein’ a total disgrace!


Dat’s life (dat’s life) I tell ya, and I ain’t gonna deny it

I thought of quittin’, bitch

But my heart just ain’t gonna buy it

And when I didn’t think it ain’t worth one more try

I’d just jump right back on dat skinny lizard

and then

I’d just chase them damn flies!!!

  2. I love this. I am one of those people who lately seems to be ‘continuously picking myself up, wiping myself off, and getting back in ‘dat’ race’. Jeez I’m getting knocked on my butt over and over for some reason these last few months but I keep getting up, somehow stronger than ever each time. This was great! I love ‘dat’ dog… ❤
