Movie Star Dog

Movie Star Dog
Words and music by Stuart Reedy

The sun just keeps on going around the earth and I keep going too
And every morning I brush my teeth and comb my hair like you
But I’m a schizophrenic man I do my shopping in garbage cans
Believe or not I have a plan; I know just what to do

I’ll getta Movie star dog
And that will make things fine
He’ll be a Rin-Tin-Tin-looking Lassie Lad
And with me all the time
We’ll save little Timmy from the well
Yes everything will be just swell
As soon as I can get a movie star dog

I went this morning to get some cigarettes at my favorite place
When I walked in the waitress got this horrible look upon her face
So I sat at the table that isn’t there and attempted to order the standard fare
Knowing that the police would soon be there; my mind began to race

I know I gotta getta Movie star dog
And that will make things fine
He’ll be a Rin-Tin-Tin-looking Lassie Lad
And with me all the time
We’ll save little Timmy from the well
Yes everything will be just swell
As soon as I can get a movie star dog

The police locked me in the county detention center in a padded room
They told me to relax because the doctor he was coming soon
So I just laughed and rolled my eyes and struggled with straight-jacket ties
Immune to all their evil lies; safe as in the womb

‘Cause, I’m gonna getta Movie star dog
And that will make things fine
He’ll be a Rin-Tin-Tin-looking Lassie Lad
And with me all the time
We’ll save little Timmy from the well
Yes everything will be just swell
As soon as I can get a movie star dog
