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:
This one is for the eyes
For the eyes of the other dogs to come
It’s for the eyes of the other dogs to come

One man digs a hole while the
Other one shovels dirt inside
Another hole
One man says “hello” while
Another man is leaving on a
Long journey to a place he’ll not return

And there, on his tombstone
Carved so bold
The words are clear and strong
It says:
This one is for the eyes
For the eyes of the other dogs to come
It’s for the eyes of the other dogs to come

Every entrance has an exit
Every doorknob has a twist
I wonder what my face looked like
Before it looked like this?

And there, on his tombstone
Carved so bold
The words are clear and strong
It says:
This one is for the eyes
For the eyes of the other dogs to come
It’s for the eyes of the other dogs to come
