about

Jimmie and I were watching an old re-run of “Cheers” one night and Norm walked in and said: “It’s a dog eat dog world and I’m wearing Milkbone shorts.” I think, in Nashville, that’s what’s known as a hook. It’s a pretty silly song, but we had a ball writing it.

lyrics

When I walked in to work this morning, the boss was in my face
It ain’t my fault if Floyd screws up everything I delegate
If truth be known, he wants my job. He’s looking to move upstairs
Well, it’s a dog eat dog world out there
And it seems like I’m wearing Milkbone Underwear

I feel like a mailman sloshin’ through the rain
Instead of water pourin’ down, it’s rainin’ Gravy Train
I’m just a big ol’ friendly pup and there’s pit bulls everywhere
Well, it’s a dog eat dog world out there
And it seems like I’m wearin’ Milkbone Underwear

Linda Lu said she wanted me home by six.. the boss said overtime
I missed the fourth anniversary of our third date and when I rolled in at nine
Linda Lu had my steak in Fido’s dish… she was pointin’ at his pillow downstairs
Well, it’s a dog eat dog world out there
And it seems like I’m wearin’ Milkbone Underwear

Chorus
