    DOGGIE THAT I USED TO KNOW, Gotye "Somebody That I Used to Know" parody to promote adoption of shelter dogs. Please adopt! Millions of dogs are put to death each year just for lack of a home. This video has a happy ending, but not all shelter dogs do.

    With respect to Gotye and this song's copyright holders.

    A PET POSTCARD PROJECT PRODUCTION
    Lyrics: Nikki Moustaki and Matt Kurzban of Damn Glad (the band)
    Vocals: Matt Kurzban
    Video: Nikki Moustaki

    Thank you to everyone who lent video and photos to this project!

    NOTE: By the lyric "they are not my friends," I meant that the dog doesn't know them, not that the shelter workers are bad. Quite the opposite. I have a lot of compassion for shelter workers. They have a hard job.

    LYRICS:

    "Doggie That I Used To Know"
    "Doggy That I Used to Know"

    Now and then I think of when we were together
    Then you dropped me at the pound where I could die
    I thought you were the right human for me
    But I guess I wasn't the right doggy
    But in this cage that's all I can remember

    In this shelter there's a certain kind of sadness
    Like resignation to the end, always the end
    Being sentenced does not make sense
    The people here, they are not my friends
    I can sit, I can stay, heel, and roll over

    You didn't have to drop me off
    Make me out to be a bad dog, when I wasn't
    And all I really need is love
    But you treat me like a stray dog and I feel so ruff
    You didn't have to stoop so low
    I used to have a name now they changed it and I'm just a number
    I guess that I don't need that though
    Now I'm just a doggie that you used to know

    Now I'm just a doggie that you used to know
    Now I'm just a doggie that you used to know

    Now and then I think of all the times you called me Rover
    Now I'm homeless, what is it that I've done?
    How long can I live this way?
    They said tomorrow's my very last day
    They said I've gotta go
    And I wouldn't get adopted because I'm too old!

    You didn't have to drop me off
    Make me out to be a bad dog, when I wasn't
    And all I really need is love
    But you treated me like a stray and I feel so ruff
    No you didn't have to stoop so low
    I used to have a name now they changed it and I'm just a number
    But I'm getting adopted though!
    Now I'm just a doggie that you used to know

    [x2]
    a doggie
    (I used to know)
    a doggie
    Now I'm just a doggie that you used to know

    (I used to know)
    (That I used to know)
    (I used to know)
    a doggie Show less
