Wag the Dog OST

  • 1. Wag The Dog
    Now you can do the Watusi
    You can do it if you try
    Any puppy dog or pussy
    Can do the jerk, do the fly

    Now you can do the wooly bully
    But can you pull the wooly, wooly
    Can you wag? Can you wag the dog?
    Wag the dog? Can you wag the dog?

    You got the shimmy and the hustle
    It’s all the rage downtown
    Yeah, you don’t have to have the muscle
    To get into the mess around

    ‘Cause you can do the wooly bully
    But can you pull the wooly wooly
    Can you wag? Can you wag the dog?
    Wag the dog? Can you wag the dog?

    So make him sit, make him stay
    Come to heel, go play, roll him over, lie still
    Make him go kill, attaboy
    Wag that dog

    You have had the duck and mashed potato
    Funky chicken on a roll
    Move on up a little later
    To the monkey and the stroll

    Yeah, you can do the wooly bully
    But can you pull the wooly, wooly
    Can you wag? Can you wag the dog?
    Wag the dog? Can you wag the dog?

    Now go bow, bow, wow, wow, yeah
    Now go woof, woof, woof woof
    Yeah, that’s right, wag, wag the dog
    (Wag the dog)

    Wag the dog
    (Wag the dog)
    Yeah, wag that dog
    (Wag the dog)

    The locomotion, boogaloo
    (Wag the dog)
    The hully gully and the limbo too
    (Wag the dog)

    Wag that dog
    (Wag the dog)
    Yeah, hitchhike for me baby

    Now we’re barefootin’
    (Wag the dog)
    The funky, funky penguin
    (Wag the dog)

    That’s the bug and that’s the frug
    (Wag the dog, wag the dog)
    (Wag the dog)
    Yeh but can you wag?
    (Wag the dog)

    Wag the dog
    Can you wag the dog?
    Wag the dog
    Can you wag the dog?
