A big black dog
Little too much gray around the muzzle
A big black dog
How she ended up at the pound is a puzzle
A big black dog

Did she run away
Because somebody didn't treat her right?
Did they leave her out in the cold night air
Through lonely night?
A big black dog

A big black dog
I found her one day
Down there at the metro
A big black dog
Waiting in a cage in line for the death row
A big black dog

Did somebody put her out on the road
Did they just not care?
Did they think an old dog is too much trouble
For them to bear?
A big black dog

Her name is Bella, Bella
You're not brown, you're not yellow
Bella, Bella
My big black dog

Big black dogs, they're everywhere
Looking for a home, they're hungry and scared
All they need is food and attention
To give you back love, sometimes redemption of sin
You could find it there in a big black dog

A big black dog
She may be a little rough around the edges
A big black dog
When you throw a ball, she'll always go and fetch it
Big black dog

With a brand new leash and a brand new collar
It's a brand new game
I love to see the way she runs to me
When I holler out her name
My big black dog

Her name is Bella, Bella
You're not brown, you're not yellow
Bella, Bella
My big black dog
My big black dog
