Some Questions Never Get Answered

I have been waiting my whole life to find out how much is that doggie in the window, but I am not thinking about purchasing it.  I guess this one will end up going to the grave with me.

How much is that doggie in the window?
The one with the waggly tail
How much is that doggie in the window?
I do hope that doggie’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 doggie will have a good home

How much is that doggie in the window?
The one with the waggly tail
How much is that doggie in the window?
I do hope that doggie’s for sale

I read in the papers there are robbers
With flashlights that shine in the dark
My love needs a doggie 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 fishies
He can’t take a goldfish for a walk

How much is that doggie in the window?
The one with the waggly tail
How much is that doggie in the window?
I do hope that doggie’s for sale

  1. I once walked into a pet store, something I had done before in my life but not often, and found myself greeted by a cat… a kitten who must’ve been looking out the window before I entered. This was a very friendly cat. I keep saying cat before kitten because I took the fella’ home, and he wasn’t a kitten forever. The kitten had free reign in the shop, not being kept in a cage; I could relate to that. When the price of the cat was inquired as to, the answer was a very agreeable offer of the little guy being free (in yet another way). The new friend had blue eyes and brown features on a cream-colored coat. He was a chocolate-point siamese, but not pure (no official papers). At home, it was determined that the real cost was the time and effort to remove a few fleas. Best pet ever.
