This tune is about Karma the labradoodle. Illustration by Sarah Davis Baker.


Yellow Dog on a yellow night, howling at a yellow moon
Barking up a cedar tree at a fiery eyed raccoon
Running all the black cats down
Tabby tigers too
Gonna getcha getcha getcha getcha ooooo

Would you fetch a willow stick, if I throw it hard
Would you come back when I call and stay here in the yard
I don’t think you understand a single word I say
You here what you wanna hear and I guess thats OK

Yellow Doggy — get your ball and bring it back to me
Yellow Doggy — when I call your name
Leave behind your sheddy hair
And all your circus fleas
Just bring all your doggy love to me.

I bet you could learn to dance and hop on your hind feet
Balance things upon your snoot or maybe even speak
Yellow Dog roll over, Yellow Dog play dead
Sit, stay, heel, wait, drop it, go to bed.
