D Dog (Dog Song) Lyrics

I love my dog, a charming dog, a cultured dog is he.
Ruff or Bud just wouldn't do, a classy name needs he.
Aloysius, loyal Aloysius.
Aloysius, lovable is he.
Is your dog a pedigree?
He is well bred obviously!
Intelligent? Naturally!
Affectionate? Most definitely!
Aloysius my dog Aloysius.
Aloysius my best friend is he!
