C                            G7

I know a dog and his name is Rags.

G7                         C

He eats so much, his tummy sags.

C                                   F

His ears flip-flop and his tail wig-wags.

    G7                C

And when he walks, he zig-zag-zags.



C          F        G7  C

Flip-flop, wig-wag, zig-zag.

C          F        G7  C

Flip-flop, wig-wag, zig-zag.


F                      C

He rolls around in the grass all day.

C                    [n.c.]

And when I whistle,  [whistle]


He doesn't obey!

C                  G7    C

He always runs the other way.




F                     C

He doesn't have a pedigree.

C          F        G7       C

But I love him, and he loves me.
