• Give me a dollar or give me 50 cents
    Let me take it back if that ain't what I meant
    Give me a coat or give me a bite
    Give me a light bulb and make sure it's bright
    Give me the moon or give me everywhere
    Give me some powder to spray up in the air

    Let me take my thoughts away to think about another day
    Remembering the times I pray to help me deal with me
    To be the dogman

    Give me some attention lend me your ear
    Give me what to do and get me out of here
    Give me a book give me something to read
    Give me a horse race and give me who's the lead


    All the sleeping never waking all the leaves in need of raking
    All the business undertaking all my bones and muscles aching
    Thoughts and mind are surely flaking over luncheons hands are shaking
    Surety of no mistaking cars and horns and glass is breaking

    Give me a color make it black or white
    Give me a newspaper tell me if it's right
    Give me a nail or give me a bat
    Give me a skinny or give me a fat

    [Chorus] Writer/s: Douglas Theodore Pinnick, Jerry Wayne Gaskill, Ty Ryan Tabor
