I Was Just a Stupid Dog To Them
1982 Nina Simone
Recording sessions
1982 January: Paris (FR) Studios Davout
I was just a dog to them
They didn't want to change
Just a stupid dog to them
With a funny sounding name

Bob Marley had died a week before
Bratislava was a place to go
Just a stupid dog to them
Now everything will change

I was just a clown to them
They didn't want to change
Just a stupid clown to them
With a funny sounding name

Anyway it was all a lie
Just a chance for them to get by
Just a stupid dog to them
Just a stupid dog to them
Now everything will change

I was just a dog to them
They didn't want to change
Just a stupid dog to them
With a funny sounding name

Marley died a week before
Bratislava was a place to go
Just a stupid dog to them
Just a silly clown to them
Just a stupid dog to them
Now now everything will change
