Lyrics

Lay Down With Dogs

when i was just a boy turnin' into man
my papa said son it's time to hand down my plan
then he started to tell me bout the birds and the bees
he told me lay down with dogs and you are bound to wake up with fleas

he said stayin'outta trouble is the key to success
if you meet the right girl you will find happiness
try to see the forest don't get lost in the trees
'cause if you lay down with dogs you are bound to wake up with fleas

well i didn't quite get what he was talkin' about
he said sooner or later i would figure it out
be careful what you do and take it slow before you hitch
cause the very last thing that you would want is an itch

at the age of 18 my momma took me aside
she warned me bout the girls who act like Jekyl and Hyde
don't be in a big hurry to get down on one knee
'cause if you lay down with dogs you are bound to wake up with fleas

my mama promised me that this was sound advice
cause fallin' in love is like a roll of the dice
gotta give it your all just to find a good match
and then you gotta pray that she don't cause you to scratch

she warned me they would tempt me with their luring eyes
don't fall for their advances it would be unwise
don't settle for a girl just cause she gives you a squeeze
even if she begs you baby please please please
if you lay down with dogs you are bound wake up with fleas
