Happiness, it hurt like a train on a track
Coming towards her, stuck still no turning back
She hid around corners and she hid under beds
She killed it with kisses and from it she fled
With every bubble she sank with a drink
and washed it away down the kitchen sink
The dog days are over
The dog days are done
The horses are coming so you better run
Run fast for your mother run fast for your father
Run for your children and your sisters and brothers
Leave all your love and your loving behind you
Can’t carry it with you if you want to survive
The dog days are over
the dog days are done
Can’t you hear the horses
Cause here they come
And I never wanted anything from you
Except everything you had
and what was left after that too. oh.
Happiness it hurt like a bullet in the mind
Stuck them up drainpipes
by someone who should know better than that
