Your Bulldog Drinks Champagne
By Jim Stafford
Tabbed by Larry Mofle

            E                       B    
There was a lady in a window in the room across the way
         B                            A            E
From the hotel I was staying in while on my holiday
E                                         B
I couldn't help but see everything 'cause I was peeping I confess
      B                             A                 E
Still after dinner every night, she had the strangest guest 

She'd retire to her favorite chair and sit there with a dog
Fill the crystal glasses while the fire danced on the log
I watched them drink their bubbly brew until the fire grew dim
Then I stuck my head out the window and said why not me instead of him 

        A                  B         E                  A
Oh your bulldog drinks champagne and I ain't one to complain
       E                                 B        
What a perfect waste of wine it seems to be 
   E               A              E                A 
so honey, tell ol' rover that the big dog's coming over
           E                      C#m                 A          B       E 
'Cause any woman that would get a bulldog drunk would have to be good to me 

Fourteen days and fourteen nights not one word did I hear
Her with her silk and champagne over to me in my shorts with a beer
She just left the curtains wide and I knew she knew I could see
Her and the pug-nosed mutt guzzling wine and teasing me 

So I made a bolder move, I went over and rang her bell
I heard growling from inside and I got scared as hell
Then the bulldog staggered out the door and he said, how do yo do
But the lady bit me on the leg and I said r-rouf, I love you too

On the Sun version that I am familiar with, there is an additional verse:

Stop your rambling stop your gambling
Stop staying out late at night
Go home to your wife and family
Stay lit by the fire side bright
