How Much Is That Doggie In the Window

Words & Music by Bob Merrill
Recorded by Patti Page, 1953 (#1)


    C                            G7
How much is that doggie in the window,

The one with the waggley tail?

How much is that doggie in the window? 

I do hope that doggie's for sale.

   C                        G7
I must take a trip to California

And leave my poor sweetheart alone;

If he has a dog, he won't be lonesome,

And the doggie will have a good home. 

Repeat Refrain:

I read in the paper there are robbers 
With flashlights that shine in the dark;
My love needs a doggie to protect him
And scare them away with one bark.

I don't want a bunny or a kitty,
I don't want a parrot that talks;
I don't want a bowl of little fishies
He can't take a goldfish for walks.

Repeat Refrain:
