Liz Callaway - Times Like This Lyrics

(Song from "Lucky Stiff" musical Times Like This Lyrics)

All I have to say is I am happy to be sitting here,
Doing what is meaningful to me
Working on behalf of the Universal Dog Home
Not barking up a strangers tree
Now my idea of company would be

A friendly face, the kind of face
That melts you with a grin
The kind of eyes that welcome you
The minute you walk in
A tender glance you simply can't refuse
At times like this a girl could use
A dog.

He listens when you tell him things,
There's nothing you can't say
And unlike certain people you can teach him how to stay
And if the world is giving you the blues
He cheers you up by chewing up the news.
It's things like that that make you choose
A dog

Other people need romance, dancing, playing around
Other people need constant fun, well I'm not one
I have my feet on the ground

Give me a quiet night, a stack of books
A tuna melt of rye
A simple walk together
Underneath the starry sky
And suddenly the night is something rare
And all because there's someone special there.
Who's gazing at the views.
His head upon your shoes.
At times like this, I sure could use
A Dog
