Youíll Be Sorry

Sit! Stay! No! Stop! Good dog.
Letís take it from the top.

You can chase a squirrel thatís gray.
You wonít catch it anyway.
But donít chase that squirrel thatís black
With the white stripe down its back.
D-D-Donít chase that squirrel.
Thatís not a squirrel.
And if you catch that squirrel
Youíll be sorry. Sorry.
If you catch that squirrel youíll be sorry.

You can chase a blue-tail fly,
Theyíre hard to catch but try.
But that little fat galoot in the fuzzy yellow suit
D-D-Donít chase that fly. Thatís not a fly.
And if you catch that fly youíll be sorry. Sorry.
If you catch that fly youíll be sorry.

I talk and talk and talk until Iím blue.
Words donít mean a thing to a dog like you.
A bee will sting.
A skunk will spray.
I guess a dog just has to learn the hard wayÖ

You can chase an old groundhog,
Thatís good fun for a dog.
But the ones with the long sharp spines,
Now those are porcupines.
D-D-Donít catch that porc.
Heís a thousand points of fork.
And if you catch one fork youíll be sorry. Sorry.
If you catch one fork youíll be sorry.
Stay! Stop! No!


This song appears on Tom Chapin's Billy The Squid CD.
