For this week’s Song Lyric Sunday, writers weren’t endlessly chasing a tune to fulfill the given prompt like I do cats in the neighborhood. Simply enough, the song’s title or lyrics required either the words: “this,” “that,” or “other.”

“The Puppy Song” by Harry Nilsson not only paws at the hearts of dog lovers, but many of the lyrics were as true as the dog days of summer are long. For instance, when Nilsson wrote: “I’d take my puppy everywhere; La, la, la-la I wouldn’t care,” I imagined my Dad singing the same exact lyrics as he brings me into the grocery store, ice cream shop, or even his work because he understands how much I enjoy being a part of everything. Enjoy the song!

Lyrics to “The Puppy Song” by Harry Nilsson:

Dreams are nothing more than wishes

And a wish is just a dream

You wish to come true, woo woo

If only I could have a puppy

I’d call myself so very lucky

Just to have some company

To share a cup of tea with me

I’d take my puppy everywhere

La, la, la-la I wouldn’t care

And we would stay away from crowds

And signs that said no dogs allowed

Oh we, I know he’d never bite me

Whoa de lo…….

We, I know he’d never bite me

If only I could have a friend

To stick with me until the end

And walk along beside the sea

Share a bit of moon with me

I’d take my friend most everywhere

La, la, la-la I wouldn’t care

We would stay away from crowds

With signs that said no friends allowed

Oh we, we’d be so happy to be

Whoa de lo………….

We, we’d be so happy to be together

But dreams are nothing more than wishes

And a wish is just a dream

You wish to come true

Whoa whoa……….

Dreams are nothing more than wishes

And a wish is just a dream

You wish to come true

Whoa whoa woo……..

Dreams are nothing more than wishes

And a wish is just a dream

You wish to come true
