Hey Bulldog

One of the lesser known Beatles songs and one of my favorites, Hey Bulldog was composed and recorded in February 1968.  WARNING: Contains barking.  Whimsical sounding, but the lyrics are quite serious. Solid guitar riffs, catchy rhythms and fun interplay between Paul and John, particularly towards the end of the video.
Sheepdog, standing in the rain
Bullfrog, doing it again
Some kind of happiness is
Measured out in miles
What makes you think you're
Something special when you smile
Childlike, no one understands
Jackknife, in your sweaty hands
Some kind of innocence is
Measured out in years
You don't know what it's like
To listen to your fears
You can talk to me
You can talk to me
You can talk to me
If you're lonely, you can talk to me
Big man, walking in the park
Wigwam, frightened of the dark
Some kind of solitude is
Measured out in you
You think you know me, but you haven't got a clue
