Hey Bulldog

Release date: 13 January 1969

Sheep dog 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 it but you haven't got a clue.

You can talk to me.
You can talk to me.
You can talk to me.
If you're lonely you can talk to me. (Wowwa!)

Hey bulldog. Hey bulldog. Hey bulldog. Hey bulldog.

"Hey Bulldog" is a song by the Beatles which first appeared on the Yellow Submarine soundtrack album in 1969. Written primarily by John Lennon (credited to Lennon-McCartney), and finished in the studio by Lennon and McCartney, the song was recorded during the filming of the "Lady Madonna" promotional video, and like "Lady Madonna" is one of the few Beatles' songs to revolve around a piano riff.
