One dog buries a bone
And then the other dog digs it up
And finds a prize in store
One dog dies and the other dogs
Go dig him up a tomb with his name inscribed
And there on his tombstone carved so bold
The words are clear and strong
It says:
[CHORUS]
This one is for the eyes
For the eyes of the other dogs who come
It's for the eyes of the other dogs to come
One man digs a hole while another man shovels dirt
Inside another hole
One man says hello while another one is leaving
