Wise man he once told me
The scars aint worth the roll
But our wheels keep spinning
I guess they broke the mold
I don't know

The life I lead is the life of a dog,
I may have fleas but I run our yard.
I see those clones looking down on me,
But unlike those clones this dog is free.

Oh lordy, it's a dog's life
Oh lordy, it's a dog's life, dog's life

I'm feeling kinda irie.
It's bubbling inside me.

Straight up it's a dogs life,
Way-way-wait, stop that track.
Lets rewind, retrack, pull slack, and roll back
To the days when I hung with G-Mack
You got to face facts
So relap
Yo what about G-Mack?
Man it's homey Elo
Man it's cousin D-Loc
Moved into his house
And we didn't wanna be broke
So roll some smoke
I wrote rhymes
Decided way back that we had good times
And we drank brews, and we shot booze
Both got ladies and broke the rules
Whether I snooze my squeeze,
Clean my slate,
And like a dog should
Yo I pissed on his plate!

Man I'm lovin southern Cali (Cali!)
Drinkin brews in the alley,
Just holding down the stages from Diego to the valley,
Bustin' up my car,
We gettin' lifted off to Maui.
As I fly, goin' big at Snow Valley.

Oh lordy it's a dog's life (It's a dogs life)
Oh lordy, it's a dog's, life dog's life

I'm feeling kinda irie.
It's bubbling inside me.

The life I lead is the life of a dog
I may have fleas but I run our yard
I ain't no slave to a suit and a tie
No ratfaced clone I'll never be that guy
I ain't caught up in some selfish career
I'm living in love lordy, not in fear
I see those clones looking down on me
But unlike those clones, I man is free

Save the bone for the clones
My mental's homegrown
I'd rather be myself than live my life like a drone
If you got a job here's what i say
You'll be off to work and I'll be on my way
Skate a pipe or go dirt bike riding
You'll be punching clocks
And I'll be grinding and sliding
Fifty-fifty grinds, can-cans, and knack-knacks
It really don't matter cause I roam with the dog pack

Oh lordy it's a dog's life (It's a dogs life)
Oh lordy, it's a dog's, life dog's life

Ohla in stylee these throws make me irie
My satisfaction when the crowd gets smiley
Behind me, chanting KottonMouth Kings!
Throw me on stage busting rhymes, blowing rings.

I'm feeling kinda irie.
It's bubbling inside me.

Lord have mercy, forgive me for my sins
I live the dogs life, so how do I begin
I ain't never had a dope track, to write a dope rap
I started with the broke pack, then I handled that
No full track to playback
Just my ghettoblaster
I ball grip with D-Loc
Then the mic I master

Imagine I go to work on a Monday morning
While I contemplate lord, what I'm doing
I might go surf or write a song instead
I might puff, I sleep and eat, and go back to bed
Or call down to Xland
My true brethren
Flash the latest dub from the new Too Rude album for you
He is the man but me stylin'
But then now we're the KottonMouth Kings up on the Too Rude rhythm!

Oh lordy it's a dog's life (It's a dogs life)
Oh lordy, it's a dog's, life dog's life
