CC chord                                       DmDm chord AmAm chord
  Happiness hit her like a train on a track...
CC chord                                             DmDm chord AmAm chord
  Coming towards her, stuck still no turning back...
CC chord
  She hid around corners and she hid under beds
CC chord                       DmDm chord       AmAm chord
  She killed it with kisses and from it she fled
     CC chord
With every bubble she sank with her drink
      CC chord         DmDm chord          AmAm chord
And washed it away down the kitchen sink

Chorus:
    CC chord
The dog days are over
    CC chord
The dog days are done
    CC chord          DmDm chord
The horses are coming
   AmAm chord
So you better run

    CC chord
Run fast for your mother, run fast for your father
CC chord
Run for your children, for your sisters and brothers
CC chord                             DmDm chord
Leave all your loving, your loving behind
         AmAm chord
You cant carry it with you if you want to survive


    CC chord
The dog days are over
    CC chord
The dog days are done
CC chord                   DmDm chord
Can you hear the horses?
       AmAm chord              CC chord
'Cause here they come 

- silence -

    CC chord CC chord            CC chord        DmDm chord      AmAm chord
And I never wanted anything from you
       CC chord        CC chord             CC chord             DmDm chord         AmAm chord
Except everything you had and what was left after that too, oh

- loud again -
CC chord                CC chord                     CC chord  DmDm chord AmAm chord
Happiness hit her like a bullet in the head.....

 Struck from a great height by someone who should know better than that

    CC chord
The dog days are over
    CC chord
The dog days are done

Can you hear the horses?
