Dark Canine

The black dog followed them home.  The dog was malnourished, so the band would feed this nameless black Labrador retriever that stayed on the grounds where they were recording their next album.  They wrote a song about an extremely attractive woman who really knew how to shake her thing.  This woman with big legs spent his money, took his car and started telling her friends that she was gonna be a star, but it turned out that she didn’t have a soul.  He realized that even though this woman appealed to his interests, that she was no good for him and he would be better off with one that would comfort him by telling the truth and then he would become a happy man.  The woman was unnamed just like the dog, so they called this new song ‘Black Dog’.

Written for Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie First Line Friday hosted by Dylan.
