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
