  • There's a portrait on my wall
    A map of a friend
    Confer to where I call
    On whom I can depend
    My imaginary back door
    I have a saint Bernard
    Oh my lord
    In my big backyard

    La la, la la la
    La la, la la la

    Dispatches from the pound
    I recieve in my dreams
    Black tears of white and brown
    That's a rip on the scheme
    And life won't seem to hard
    If I had a Saint Bernard
    Oh my Lord
    It wouldn't be so hard


    La la, la la la
    La la, la la la

    Who else is going to rescue me when I'm face down in the snow?
    No other dog looks a bit like me
    I'm feeling
    Or unwilling
    Unable to make the show

    In my imaginary backyard
    There's a flask around his neck
    A brandy for me
    Sip on as I reflect
    On your mortality
    Like a four legged Minnie Maud
    I'm talking Saint Bernard
    On a four
    He's my minnie maud

    La la, la la la
    La la, la la la

    I'm talking Saint Bernard

    La la, la la la
    La la, la la la Writer/s: RON SEXSMITH
