Album: Keep The Dogs Away (1977)

Songfacts®:

  • Tell me that I'm big and strong" - seriously? As frontman Jon Mikl Thor was the first Canadian to win both the Mr. Canada and Mr. USA titles, how does this rate as a lie on a scale of 1 to 100?

    Running to 3 minutes 12 seconds, track 5 on the 1977 Keep The Dogs Away album was written by Willi Morrison. In 1987, Fleetwood Mac released a song on the same theme. Best go with that. >>
