    DOGTOWN

    The town's dawning, I'm the only one awake
    The streets are whistling, I light my fourth cigarette
    I think of my friends, they were once not so dead
    What are they thinking now

    One day, I'll be just a little stone
    Nobody'll know that the stone had such emotions
    Anyway, I'm always on the run
    Someday, I'll be remembered for
    The phone calls I never made
    Letters I never mailed
    And stories I never finished telling anyone

    The town's yawning, I let my dog walk me around
    He took a shot and people smiled
    I tried the same and people frowned
    Yes, it's a dog, dog town

    One day, let's be a pair of trees
    Nobody'll know that trees had such a history
    Anyway, we'd never be this lonely
    Someday I'll be remembered for
    The fine words I meant to keep
    A warm smile I meant to leave
    And a true song I meant to finish writing all my life

    Yes, it's a dogtown
    It's a dogtown
    Yes, it's a dogtown
    It's a dogtown
    Dog, dog, dog, dog
    Dog, dog, dog, dog
    Dogtown

    Peas porridge stuck
    Peas porridge boiled
    Peas porridge in the pot nine years old
    Some gets laid
    Some gets paid
    Some stays in the pot nine years cold

    Yes, it's a dogtown
    It's a dogtown
    Yes, it's a dogtown
    It's a dogtown
    Dog, dog, dog, dog
    Dog, dog, dog, dog
    Dogtown

    Peas porridge stuck
    Peas porridge boiled
    Peas porridge in the pot nine years old
    Some gets grades
    Some gets slayed
    Some stays in the pot nine years old

    Yes, it's a dogtown
    Yes, it's a dogtown

    From the Yoko Ono album 'Approximately Infinite Universe'.

    Approximately Infinite Universe is a double album by Yoko Ono, released in early 1973. It represents a departure from the experimental avant-garde rock of her first two albums towards a more conventional pop/rock sound, while also dabbling in feminist rock.

    The 1997 CD re-issue on Rykodisc added two acoustic demos of songs from this era that were later released on 1981's Season of Glass.
