Kill the Dog

Some songs are just about the fun of writing and playing it. Kill the Dog is an example of such a song. I heard someone complain about the neighbors’ noises and sighing “I should kill their freaking dog”. Basically, that was all the inspiration for this sarcastic poppy ska/punk song?

Out now on Spotify, AppleMusic, Deezer, and all other online music stores.

Em		C
Noises upstairs
Em		A
Drive me crazy all the time 
Em		C
Don’t know what they’re doing 
A		D
But I’m sure that it’s a crime 

Em		C
Scraping of the chairs 
Em		A
Bouncing on the floor 
Em		C
Fighting on the balcony 
G		D
I can’t take it anymore 

	C			D
Though I can’t kill them 
	Em		D		C
Something must be done 
	D
It’s going on too long now 
	E
I’ve been waiting way too long 

		G		Am
I will put my plan to work 
		Bm		A
I need action now, not talk 
		G		A
Each limit has been crossed now 
D
It’s time to kill the dog 

His snoring in the evening 
Her annoying voice 
And maybe worst of all 
Their sorrow bedroom noise 

Though I can’t kill them 
Something must be done 
It’s going on too long now 
I’ve been waiting way too long 

I will put my plan to work 
I need action now, not talk 
Each limit has been crossed now 
It’s time to kill the dog 

C		D
Kick it off the stairs 
Em		C
Feed it cyanide
C		D
Poisoned meat perhaps 
F#m		E
Or maybe I should bite 
Bm		F#m
Strangle with its leash 
A		C
Cut it with a knife 
D
I don’t really care 
E
But it won’t survive 

I will put my plan to work 
I need action now, not talk 
Each limit has been crossed now 
It’s time to kill the dog
