Sitting in a living room in a condo
Gazmo's on the rug with little Cassy-O
Gazmo's gettin' nervous
Cassy wants to sample the dog. She says:
"Bark, howl, do what you like
But if you're going to growl, just growl into the mike
We're gonna play a game called sample the dog"
Sample the dog...

There's a new age family out in North Carolina
A dog named Jamaica, a daughter named China
A son who plays in a band called Sample the Dog
Third world music on the stereo
Dust on the keys of the piano
And China's in the kitchen tryin' to sample the dog
Sample the dog...

Now Cassy can't read & China can't write
And the Board of Education mumbles in the night
A prayer for our nation: 
"Lord let us sample the dog..."

The exact same thing is happenin' today
In a million homes across the USA
Everybody's workin', tryin' to sample the dog...
