For 7/7/19 ~ “Dog Days Are Over”

Jim gives us the following #SLS prompt for today – July 7, 2019 – Zodiac animals those being a Rat/Ox/Tiger/Rabbit/Dragon/Snake/Horse/Sheep/ Monkey/Rooster/Dog/Pig.  

I have to say before I get into the music that I had the MOST delightful time picking a song.  As my compulsion pulled me, I tried to find a song for every animal.  With more options than I knew what to do with, I sat with analysis paralysis trying to find perfection.  And that search was amaze balls.  However perfection is an illusion.  I was going to take the easy route and go with Survivor’s Eye of The Tiger since I alluded to it last week but then I was reconnected with Florence + the Machine.  The rest shall we say is history.  What a grandiose introduction.  LOL 🙂   I hope you enjoy.

Lyrics
Happiness, hit her like a train on a track
Coming towards her, stuck still no turning back
She hid around corners and she hid under beds
She killed it with kisses and from it she fled
With every bubble she sank with a drink
And washed it away down the kitchen sink
The dog days are over
The dog days are done
The horses are coming so you better run
Run fast for your mother run fast for your father
Run for your children for your sisters and brothers
Leave all your love and your longing behind you
Can’t carry it with you if you want to survive
The dog days are over
The dog days are done
Can’t you hear the horses
‘Cause here they come
And I never wanted anything from you
Except everything you had
And what was left after that too, oh.
Happiness hit her like a bullet in the back
Struck from a great height
By someone who should know better than that
The dog days are over
The dog days are done
Can you hear the horses
‘Cause here they come
Run fast for your mother and fast for your father
Run for your children for your sisters and brothers
Leave all your love and your loving behind you
Can’t carry it with you if you want to survive
The dog days are over
The dog days are done
Can you hear the horses
‘Cause here they come
The dog days are over
The dog days are done
Can you hear the horses
‘Cause here they come
The dog days are over
The dog days are done
The horses are coming
So you better run
