  • Lyrics
  • I love my dog as much as I love you
    But you may fade, my dog will always come through.

    All he asks from me is the food to give him strength
    All he ever needs is love and that he knows he'll get

    So, I love my dog as much as I love you
    But you may fade, my dog will always come through.

    All the pay I need comes shining through his eyes
    I don't need no cold water to make me realize that

    I love my dog as much as I love you
    But you may fade, my dog will always come through.

    Na, na, na, na, na, na, nana...

    I love my dog as much as I love you
    But you may fade, my dog will always come through.

    Na, na, na, na, na, na, nana...

    I love my dog, baby, I love my dog. Na, na, na...
    I love my dog, baby, I love my dog. Na, na, na... Publisher: Sony/ATV Music Publishing LLC, Universal Music Publishing Group

  • Jeff Barto from Huntersville, NcCat heard the melody of the song titled "Plum Blossom" on Yusuf Lateef's album title "Eastern Sounds." He used this melody to "I Love My Dog." Lateef's lawyers complained to Cat about it back in 1966. I don't know what came of that stir. But, years later as Yusuf Islam, Cat acknowledged Lateef on his box set and gave restitution. How coincidental that he crosses paths with a man who he later takes his name (Yusuf).
  • Adam from Sydney, AustraliaThis is a great song to hear when reminiscing about my beloved dog. It's great to hear another dog lover sing about one of the simplest pleasures in life: the bond between a dog and their master.
  • Floria from Us, ScThe music was too loud on this release. When he sang it in concert with only the guitar to accompany the lyrics, it was better. Still not my favorite either.
  • B from Blair, MiRe Stevens record deal: the label was Deram Records which was set up by Decca Records (UK) - Not Dream.
  • Michael from Tasmania, Australiai really liked this song
    Like you John i love the violin, it gives it such a sad yet comforting feeling
  • John from Gosford, AustraliaI think it was awesome. It was so explicit in its imagery. You can really imagine a dog bounding through the grass to the rhythm of the song, so brilliant. The violins were great too.
  • Charlie from Thomaston, Dci have to say that this was the WORST cat stevens song EVER! don't get me wrong, he was a great artist, but that song, that song really flopped, atleast for me.
