There I was, fast asleep
yap . . yap . . yap . .
Now rousing from my slumbers deep
yap . . yap . . yap . .
Strug-gl-ing with all my might
Yap . . Yap . . Yap . .
To understand the flashing light
Yap . . Yap . . Yap . .
Ah yes, we’re about to have a storm
Yap . . Yap . . Yap . . Yap . .
And the neighbours dog is true to form
YAP . . YAP . . YAP . . YAP . .
If I had a gun I’d shoot it DEAD
YAP . . YAP . . YAP . . YAP . .
As usual, it’s off it’s HEAD
YAP . . YAP . . YAP . . YAP . .
Though they are deaf to all this row
YAP . . YAP . . YAP . . YAP . .
I must get back to sleep somehow
YAP . . YAP . . YAP . . YAP . .
My wife has closed the windows tight
Yap . . Yap . . Yap . . Yap . .
Even on this hottest night
yap . . yap . . yap . .
Your incessant barking fades away
yap . yap . yap .
By turning my deaf ear, your way
yap . yap .
The storm has gone, the sun is out
It’s morning now without a doubt
I hope your owners slept as well as I
With my deaf ear turned to the sky
