Lyrics

[Intro] [CHARLIE, spoken] Why settle for a couple of bones when you can have the whole bank? Ha ha ha ha ha!

[ITCHY, spoken] Hey, Charlie! Charlie, look! You hit the jackpot! Oh ho ho Atta boy, Charlie, I'm proud o' ya! Charlie, tell 'em!

[Verse 1] (sung) [CHARLIE] Oh, you can’t keep a good dog down

[ITCHY] No sir!

[CHARLIE] No, you can’t keep a good dog down I’ve seen pain and hurt

[ITCHY] That's right

[CHARLIE] I’ve eaten dirt

[ITCHY] That's true

[CHARLIE] It’s hard to buy but even I've been jilted by a skirt!

[ITCHY] He lies!

[CHARLIE] But look, pal, I’m still around

[ITCHY] Haha!

[CHARLIE] 'Cause you can’t keep a good dog down!

[Chorus] [ITCHY] Ya can’t keep a good dog down

[CHARLIE] No you can’t!

[ITCHY] No no no no, you can’t keep a good dog down

[CHARLIE] I’ve been bought and sold

[ITCHY] He’s been warm and cold

[CHARLIE] But ten to one I’ll still be runnin’ rackets when I’m old

[ITCHY] Not in some cage in the city pound

[CHARLIE, ITCHY] 'Cause ya can’t keep a good dog Can’t keep a good I say ya can’t keep a good dog down

[Verse 2] [ITCHY] In him’s the luck of the Irish

[CHARLIE] The pride of the German

[ITCHY] And even, haha, a bit of Siam

[CHARLIE] Siam? You see the come of the English

[ITCHY] The charm of the Spanish

[CHARLIE] A pedigree a-certainly ain’t what I am! So call me a mixed up pup

[ITCHY] You’re a mixed up pup

[CHARLIE] Haha! But the only way this pup knows is up!

[ITCHY, spoken] OK, boys! C'mon! Help me get 'im! You get his leg Lift 'im up! C'mon! Didn't'cha hear the man? Up! Up! Up! C'mon!

[Chorus] (sung) [CHARLIE & DOGS] Oh, ya can’t keep a good dog down (Bow wow wow wow!) You can’t keep a good dog down (Bow wow wow wow!)

[ITCHY] He’s been fat and thin

[CHARLIE] I’ve been out and in

[ITCHY] He tried a life of virtue

[CHARLIE] But prefer a life of sin! So tonight, man, we own this town I’ve known hunger, I’ve known thirst Lived the best and seen the worst But the only way I know to finish is to finish first!

[CHARLIE & DOGS] So watch out when you hear this sound!

(all of the DOGS howl uproariously)

[CHARLIE & DOGS & ITCHY] 'Cause you can’t keep a good dog No, ya can’t keep a good I say you can’t keep a good dog down You can’t keep a good dog down!
