"I Love My Dog" as written by Bradley James Nowell, Earl C. Hudson, Paul D. Hudson, Darryl Aaron Jenifer and Gary W. Miller....
I love, I love my dog
Yes, I love, I love my dog
And I love, I love my dog

Walkin' on, walkin’ down babylon way
Got to keep going straight
Got to love my lady love
Got to keep going away

And I love my dog
Gots to keep it going straight
I love my dog
Got to keep being a man

And I love, I love my dog
And I love, I love my dog
Yes, I love, I love my dog

I love my dog
Got to keep it going straight
And I love my dog
Got to keep my PLA

I love my dog
I love my dog

    General Commenti love, i love this song. sublime's one of the few bands that can do a serious song about a dog and it could still kick ass. but then again, it's not just any dog, it's lou.

    General CommentThis is based off "I Luv I Jah" by Bad Brains.

    Same basic feel to it, although BB made it really aggressive near the end.

    General CommentIt's PMA (positive mental attitude), not PLA. He spells it out in one of the live versions.

    General Commentyeah it is PMA, and i'm pretty sure he says "gotta keep him from goin' stray", instead of gotta keep it goin' straight.

    General CommentThese lyrics are definitely off. It's "Got to keep him from going STRAY" -Also, its "PMA" (Positive Mental Attitude) Nonetheless, amazing song. No metapphoric meaning, not that I know of. Seemingly a simple sincere ode to man's best friend.

    General CommentCover of Bad Brains' I Luv I Jah. It's pretty obvious that he wrote it about his dog instead of Jah. He just took the song and changed the lyrics, which is fine with me. The thing I didn't like was they actually put an I Love My Dog Dub on Everything Under the Sun, which made no sense because there were already very few lyrics in I Love My Dog.
