  • You call me a dog, well, that's fair enough
    'Cause it ain't no use to pretend you're wrong
    And you call me out, I can't hide anymore
    I have no disguise you can't see through

    You say it's bad luck to have fallen for me
    What can I do to make it good for you?
    You wore me out like an old winter coat
    Trying to be safe from the cold

    Oh, when it's my time
    To throw the next stone
    I'll call you beautiful
    If I call at all, ooh
    You call me a dog

    And you tell me I'm low 'cause I've slept on the floor
    And out in the woods with the badgers and wolves

    You threw me out 'cause I went digging for gold
    And I came home with a handful of coal

    But when it's my time
    To throw the next stone
    I'll call you beautiful
    If I call at all
    And when it's my time
    To call your bluff
    I'll call you beautiful or leave it alone, yeah

    You call me a dog
    And that's fair enough
    It doesn't bother me as long as you know
    The bad luck will follow you
    If you keep me on a leash and you drag me along

    And when it's my time
    To throw the next stone
    I'll call you beautiful
    If I call at all

    And when it's my time
    To call your bluff, ooh
    I'll call you beautiful
    I'll leave it alone, yeah, yeah
