Story

Inspired by Sydney, who, after a long day of hyperactivity (every day) lays on her big white chair….we all know the answer to the question posed!…

Lyrics

DOG DREAMS    (5:20)  Trish:  vocal/guitar     Ken:  guitar    Janet Peterson:  cello

She lies there so peaceful – curled up all alone

Then suddenly growls and lets out a groan

Next comes a woof – and she twitches her feet

She’s chasing some mystery- her world is complete

Do Dogs Dream…Do dogs really dream?

Do Dogs Dream… Do you think they dream?

 

Coyotes and wolves – ancestors of dreams

Instincts so ancient – all deep in her genes

Running in packs through the woods and the trees

No fences, no leashes – so wild and so free

Do Dogs Dream… Do dogs really dream?

Do Dogs Dream… Do you think they dream?

 

She dreams that her people will always be near

For rubbing her belly and scratching her ears

Of rides in the car with the windows all down

Her head hanging out –there’s sniffs all around

 

Of chasing the squirrels and fetching a stick

Of tugging and chewing and shredding to bits

Of digging up dirt to bury a bone

Jumping the fence – to be free to roam

 

She lies there so peaceful curled up all alone

Then suddenly twitches and lets out a groan

She wakes up and stretches – turns ‘round several times

Total contentment is so hard to find!

 

Do Dogs Dream – do dogs really dream?

I may be mistaken, but I think they dream

Do dogs Dream – I think there are times

She couldn’t be happier, -life is just fine

She feels safe and warm – Yeah, life is just fine
