"Doghouse" as written by and Eric Matthew Stefani....
Out to the doghouse with you, that's what she said
You've been inside too long now, I must clean the mess
Go in the backyard will you, practice your tricks
Go take yourself for a walk, you make me sick

You're just a doggy, in a snap you're fetching the bone
And you're barking when she calls
You're hiding behind the fence, you've been disobedient

Your fun and playfulness is so very becoming
But she has got you by the reins, and there is no running
Conditioned to salivate at the first sound of the bell
Feeding you the remains of yesterday's meal
Can you hear her calling from within the house?

You're just a doggy, in a snap you're fetching the bone
And you're barking when she calls
You're hiding behind the fence, you've been disobedient
Shape up boy!

Can you hear her calling, from within the house?
If you would stop barking, she might let you out
At last she opens the back gate,
You're released, you're now free to roam
You've been waiting for this moment
For sometime and now you must go

Into the fields where there is laughter,
There is peace and you're
Comfortable
Try to hold on now before she calls you home!
You're in the doghouse
'Cause you're just a dog!

    General CommentI really like the shout out reference to the Pavlov's Bell dog experiment...dogs were given food at the same time the scientists rang a bell, so the dogs soon began to associate the sound of a bell with food time. The dogs were conditioned to salivate without any food there, and just at the sound of the bell.

    General Commenti like this song, i think it's one of the few old old nd songs that has some meaning behind it. it's a good ending to the beacon street collection album, which is a fantastic cd, the whole entire thing. definitely my favorite no doubt cd.

    General Commenti love this song. it's both funny and serious at the same time. definitely reflects the band's style at the time.
