Happiness hit her 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'd better run!
Run fast for your mother, run fast for your father
Run for your children, for your sisters and your brothers
Leave all your love and your longing behind
You can't carry it with you if you want to survive
The dog days are over, the dog days are done
Can 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 her her like a bullet in the back
Struck from a great height, by someone who should know better than that

The dog days are over, the dog days are done
The horses are coming, so you'd better run!
Run fast for your mother, run fast for your father
Run for your children, for your sisters and your brothers
Leave all your love and your longing behind
You can't carry it with you if you want to survive
The dog days are over, the dog days are done
Can you hear the horses? 'Cause here they come!

The dog days are over, the dog days are done (Here they come!)
The horses are coming, so you'd better run (Here they come!)
The dog days are over, the dog days are done (Here they come!)
The horses are coming, so you'd better run!
