« Dogs », de The Who (1968)

Les membres du groupe britannique The Who accompagnés de deux lévriers

Cette chanson du groupe anglais The Who a été inspirée par Chris Morphet, un ami de Pete Townshend, le co-fondateur des Who, qui été fasciné par les Greyhound. Dogs fait référence à deux chiens ayant participé à l’English Greyhound Derby, une célèbre course canine britannique : Camira Flash et Yellow Printer.

Paroles de la chanson « Dogs »

The first time we met

You were a kennel maid

You gave me a tip

I got me forecast paid

You were holding the greyhound

In trap number one

Your white coat was shining

In the afternoon sun

 

Now we're both together

We're never gonna break apart, no no

'Cause we're a happy couple, you and me

With a greyhound at either knee

 

"I'll have ten shillings to win

On Camira Flash, young man"

"Hey, what dog's that?"

"Hey, its... it's the duke's dog, innit?"

 

There was nothing in my life

Bigger than beer

There was nothing in my life

Bigger than beer

 

 

'Ceptin' you, little darling

'Ceptin' you, little darling

We're a happy couple, you and me

With a greyhound at either knee

 

We go to the dog track

On Saturday nights

We put all our money

On a dog that we like

A kiss and a cuddle

And hot meat pie

Two dollar tickets

And a starry sky

 

There was nothing in my life

Bigger than beer

There was nothing in my life

Bigger than beer

 

'Ceptin' you, little darling

'Ceptin' you, little darling

We're a happy couple, you and me

With a baby on either knee

 

Yes it's you, little darling

Yes it's you, little darling

Now it's you, little darling

Now it's you

 

"Eh, where's me wage packet?

Ah, I'll put twenty-five knicker, please

On Yellow Printer

Oh, I hope the wife don't find out

Yes, it's sure to win, isn't it?

Yes, I know, it's a good dog

I saw it run at White City, just last week

Broke the record, Yellow Printer

Nice dog, yes, lovely form

Lovely buttocks
