Tune: Salty Dog, Traditional

 
Come gather 'round from near and far
Let me tell you 'bout this man who walks into a bar
And on the bar sets down a shaggy dog.

If I canıt tell a shaggy dog
Then I wonıt tell no jokes at all
Honey, let me tell a shaggy dog.

He says, now donıt go into shock,
But this here shaggy dog can talk,
And someone says, "That's just a shaggy dog."

I know my dog will tell the truth­
Whatıs on top of a house? The dog says, "Roof!"
And someone says, "That's just a shaggy dog."

"Again, I say, dog, tell the truth­
Whoıs baseballıs best?" and the dog says, "Ruth!"
And someone says, "That's just a shaggy dog."

The dog says, after the folks all go,
"Should I have said DiMaggio?"
And the man just says, "Shut up, you shaggy dog."
