  • (HOW MUCH IS)THAT DOGGIE IN THE WINDOW
    17/04/1953 - 1 week at #1 - 11 weeks on chart

    How much is that doggy in the window
    Woof woof
    The one with the waggely tail
    How much is that doggy in the window
    Woof woof
    I do hope that doggy's for sale

    I must take a trip to California
    And leave my poor sweetheart alone
    If he has a dog he won't be lonesome
    And the doggy will have a good home

    How much is that doggy in the window
    Woof woof
    The one with the waggely tail
    How much is that doggy in the window
    Woof woof
    I do hope that doggy's for sale

    I read in the papers there are robbers
    woof woof
    With flashlights that shine in the dark
    My love needs a doggy to protect him
    And scare them away with one bark

    I don't want a bunny or a kitty
    I don't want a parrot that talks
    I don't want a bowl of little fishes
    He can't take a goldfish for walks

    How much is that doggy in the window
    Woof woof
    The one with the waggely tail
    How much is that doggy in the window
    Woof woof
    I do hope that doggy's for sale Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
