"Dog End of a Day Gone By" as written by Daniel Gaston Ash, Kevin Haskins and David Jay....
There's a man on the corner
Coming on like Moses
Found a new religion
that rebuts your plastic roses
He's found his path
To the living heart of jesus
You tell him
You've found yours

Been to the future
You've never made
There is nothing less than music
Then the amusement arcade
In a city without a soul
Newspaper boys selling you the hard truth
Lucifer employs by the hands of malady

Stuck at the dog-end of a day gone by, boy
Stuck at the dog-end of a day gone by
Stuck at the dog-end of a day gone by, boy
Don't let the smoke get in your eyes

Well the drunk outside the Wendy's
Is becoming less than friendly
A dog is barking at the moon
The drunk outside the windy
Is becoming less than friendly
A dog is barking at the moon

You want to get away
From the city of light
Then when you've gone
You want to get back
It is some strange addiction
When you need to put yourself
Back in your eye

Stuck at the dog-end of a day gone by, boy
Stuck at the dog-end of a day gone by
Stuck at the dog-end of a day gone by, boy
Don't let the smoke get in your eye

Stuck at the dog-end of a day gone by, boy
Stuck at the dog-end of a day gone by
Stuck at the dog-end of a day gone by, boy
Don't let the smoke get in your...

Stuck at the dog-end of a day gone by, boy

    General CommentLOL! Those lyrics are embarrassingly inaccurate. The first two verses goes like this:

    There's a man on the corner
    Coming on like Moses
    FLOGGING NEW religion
    LIKE A BUNCH OF plastic roses
    He's found his path
    To the BLEEDING heart of Jesus
    You tell him
    You've found yours

    HEIR to a future
    You never made
    There is nothing LESS AMUSING
    Then the amusement arcade
    In a city without a soul
    Newspaper boys selling you the hard truth
    Lucifer employs IDLE HANDS BY NIGHT AND DAY

    Song FactDavid J stated in 1990 in the Chicago Tribune that it's:
    You want to get away
    From the city of LIES
    Also it was stated:
    You need to put yourself
    Back ON THE RACK

    Song MeaningThe dog-end in British slang is a Ciggarette butt. Hence, "Don't let the smoke get in your eye."
    And it is windy not Wendy's, a windy in British slang is a children's playhouse.
    It's tiresome to see such beautiful lyrics butchered by people trying to force fit it to mean a commercial burger joint in the US. And I'm American, I just asked my British friends and read a few articles.

    General CommentI'd like to know what the 'windy' is that the unfriendly drunk is outside of.

    I'd always sing the song as "the drunk outside the Wendy's."
