your bulldog drinks champagne lyrics – jim stafford

there was a lady in a window
in the room across the way
from the hotel i was staying in
while on my holiday
i couldnt help but see everything
cause i was peeping i confess
still after dinner every night
she had the strangest guest

she’d retire to her favorite chair
and sit there with a dog
fill the crystal gl*sses
while the fire danced on the log
i watched them drink their bubbly brew
until the fire grew dim
then i stuck my head out the window
and said why not me instead of him

oh your bulldog drinks champagne
and i aint one to complain
what a perfect waste of wine it seems to be
so honey, tell ol rover that the big dogs coming over
cause any woman that would get a bulldog drunk
would have to be good to me

fourteen days and fourteen nights
not one word did i hear
her with her silk and champagne
over to me in my shorts with a beer
she just left the curtains wide
and i knew she knew i could see
her and the pug-nosed mutt
guzzling wine and teasing me

oh your bulldog drinks champagne
and i aint one to complain
what a perfect waste of wine it seems to be
so honey, tell ol rover that the big dogs coming over
cause any woman that would get a bulldog drunk
would have to be good to me

so i made a bolder move
i went over and rang her bell
i heard growling from inside
and i got scared as h*ll
then the bulldog staggered out the door
and he said, how do yo do
but the lady bit me on the leg
and i said r-rouf, i love you too

oh your bulldog drinks champagne
and i aint one to complain
what a perfect waste of wine it seems to be
so honey, tell ol rover that the big dogs coming over
cause any woman that would get a bulldog drunk
would have to be good to me
