Bobby wants a puppy dog for Christmas     (orig.song)

 

 C

Bobby wants a puppy dog for Christmas,

     G

I know you plan to bring electric trains.

  C

Bobby wants a puppy dog for Christmas,

   G                                               C

that's the only song we hear him sing.

 

      C

1. Santa, please remember Bobby's lonely,

             G

    the closest neighbour's farm is quite a ways.

                    C

    And the country school don't have no children Bobby's size,

                 G                                                   C

    and I'd like to give him something he can raise.

 

          C

And Bobby wants a puppy dog for Christmas,

      G

I know you plan to bring electric trains.

         C

But Bobby wants a puppy dog for Christmas,

         G                                                 C

and that's the only song we hear him sing.

 

      C

3. Butch and Susie won't be here for Christmas,

                  G

    and he won't see his cousins now till spring.

        C

    If we can find a playmate he can play with,

      G                                                C

    Santa, that'll be all you have to bring.
