Lyrics

You gotta stomp whistle and scream
you gotta wake right up in your dreams
you gotta jump whittle and drive
keep that feelin' alive
you gotta kick holler and shout
I'm gonna tell you what it's all about
you gotta tell me that you love me
tell me that you're mine
we're puttin' on the dog tonight
we're puttin' on the dog tonight

we'll be puttin' on the dog tonight
puttin' on puttin' on the dog tonight
we'll be puttin' on the dog tonight
well we'll be puttin' on the dog tonight
puttin' on the dog
puttin' on the dog

we'll flip follow and fly
just do it now and don't ask why
you gotta strut wiggle and slide
let everyone know that you're alive
you gotta crank gallop and twist
do it once you'll never resist
tell me that you love me
tell me that you're mine
we're puttin' on the dog tonight yeah
puttin' on the dog tonight all right

well we could go into a zuki jump
it's rainin' it pours
big ol' Lincoln with the suicide doors
tip that bottle from the brim to the dregs
you ain't dancin' till you cross your legs
puttin' on the dog tonight
we'll be puttin' on the dog tonight
we'll be puttin' on the dog tonight
puttin' on the dog tonight
puttin' on the dog
I'll be puttin' on the dog
puttin' on the dog
