There once was a greedy old dog with a bone
Crossing a bridge on his way home
He looked in the water below and he saw
A dog reflected there with a bone in his jaw
He tried to grab the other dog's bone and let go
Of his own bone which fell in the water below so
Don't be a greedy old dog with a bone
While you're stealing someone's sweetheart
You may lose your own

There's a guy I know who plays around the lot
With a gal who's not
As nice as the one he's got
Someday he'll find out
That he was really dumb
While he was busy stealing he was being stolen from

There once was a greedy old dog with a bone
Crossing a bridge on his way home

A dog reflected there with a bone in his jaw
He tried to grab the other dog's bone and let go
Of his own bone which fell in the water below so
Don't be a greedy old dog with a bone
While you're stealing someone's sweetheart
You may lose your own

While you're stealing someone's sweetheart
You may lose your own
