Dog Train
Lyrics: Sandra Boynton
Music: Sandra Boynton

Along about midnight when it's dark, dark, dark
There's a long, low whistle and a faraway bark
And then a high, high whistle only hounds can hear
To let them know the train, the dog train is near

Dog train riding all night long
On the dog train they'll be riding 'till dawn
You'll never ever see it as it rockets past
The train goes nowhere, but it goes there fast
Dog train

Now the dogs never know if they'll be going at all
They get to lie around home and wait for the call
But it has to be warm so the doggies can ride
With their ears in the breeze and their noses outside
Their cold, wet, happy, quivering noses outside
They run away and they get aboard the

Dog train riding all night long
On the dog train they'll be riding 'till dawn
You'll never ever see it as it rockets past
The train goes nowhere, but it goes there fast
Dog train

There's seven thousand dogs in eighty-eight cars
A sliver of moon and millions of stars
And every single dog has only one need
To ride this train at a dazzling speed
Dog train, dog train, dog train

Kitty-cats are not allowed
No, kitty-cats are not allowed
No, kitty-cats don't wanna ride the dog train

Kitty-cats are not allowed
No, kitty-cats are not allowed
No, kitty-cats won't go 'cause it's a dog train
A cat would be a catastrophe
A cat would be a catastrophe

Now what do we got?
Now what do we got?
Now what do we got?
Well, we got big dogs, and little dogs
And right-smack-in-the-middle dogs
And fat dogs, and skinny dogs
And quite-absurdly-mini dogs
City dogs and pretty dogs from way out of town
Dogs in every shade of black, white and brown
Lumbering dogs and doggies that spring
And one small fluffy pink poodle thing
Old dogs, and new dogs, and fine dogs, and true dogs
And safe dogs, and chicken dogs, and dogs dogs dogs dogs

Dog train running all night long
On the dog train they'll be riding 'till dawn
You'll never ever see it as it rockets past
The train goes nowhere, but it goes there fast
So fast, dog train, dog train

What do you want to know about it?
What do you want to know about it?
What do you want to know about the dog train?

What do you want to know about it?
What do you want to know about it?
What do you want to know about the dog train?

It has to be warm so the doggies can ride
With their ears in the breeze and their noses outside

Now if you notice that your dog is just lazing around
With its head on its paws and its tail on the ground
Well by now you realize there's a simple explanation
Chances are your dog has been all over creation
On the

Dog train riding all night long
On the dog train they'll be riding 'till dawn
When the whistle blows they'll all howl along
It's their very own version of the dog train song
I wish I could travel with them on the

Dog train riding all night long
On the dog train they'll be riding 'till dawn
You'll never ever see it as it rockets past
The train goes nowhere, but it goes there fast
Dog train
The train goes nowhere, but it goes there fast
Dog train, dog train, dog train

Think about it, Rover
Choo-choo it over
Dog train
Wish I could travel with them on the dog train
(Dog train riding all night long)
We'd run away together on the dog train
Run away together on the dog train
(Dog train riding all night long)
Wish I could travel with them
Wish I could travel with them
Wish I could travel with them on the dog train
Dog train
Dog train
(Hot diggity dog, hot diggity dog, hot diggity dog, hot diggity dog)
(The train goes nowhere but it goes there fast)
(Dog train)
(Dog train)
