A Dog Can Bite

Oh when a dog comes up to you
You gotta know the things to do
You don't wanna run and you don't wanna yell
Just relax and let him smell.


Oh, when a dog comes up to you
Here's the things you should not do
Never pull and never poke
Cause a dog can bite and that's no joke
A dog can bite and that's no joke.


Be kind and gentle and don't provoke.
Show him love and with each stroke
Be calm and quiet, that's a must.
Oh, when a dog comes up to you
Here's some things that you should do
Hold your hands down by your knees
Then hold real still just like a tree.


A dog can bite and that's no joke
Be kind and gentle and don't provoke.
Show him love and win his trust
Be calm and quiet, that's a must.


Leave him be if he's eating
Leave him be if he's sleeping
Don't let him try to lick your face
Give him room but give him space
Leave him be just in case he's havin a bad day
Oh when a dog comes up to you
You just don't know his point of view
So show him when he [offers?] respect
Cause he might do thing you don't expect.


A dog can bite and that's no joke
Be calm and gentle and don't provoke.
Show him love and win his trust
Be calm and quiet, that's a must.
