Sometimes I'm scratching at the back door
Waiting to be let out for five minutes
To take care of business
They don't always pay attention to my needs

Someone's laughing at the way I'll drop anything
I'm doing just to chase the things
They throw into a field
I'm going in ways that I can't explain

It gets me going in ways that I can't explain
Never grow tired of a routine that seldom changes

Sometimes when we're walking down the sidewalk
I wish I was fixed up so I didn't have all these feelings
That keep me in a permanent frustrated state

When you go out and you leave me in
I have hours to ponder, too many to fill
I feel myself going now in ways that I can't explain


My eyes are either filled with life or they're glazed over

Leave some space at the foot of your bed
So I can give you the protection you deserve
I feel much better knowing firsthand that you are safe

    General CommentI personally love this song; just a fun song to listen to. It always puts me in a good mood. I think the meaning of this song is pretty straightfoward: it's a song from a dog's point of view. He scratches at the back door because he needs to go to the bathroom; he'll chase things into a field; he wishes he was "fixed" so he isn't (sexually) frustrated; and he wants to be at the foot of their bed so he can protect them. Just a good song about something completely silly.
