Mongrels in the Night By Frank Cynatra

Mongrels in the night, exchanging curses
Wondering in the night
What were the chances, Cockerel would crow
Before our sleep was through?

Something in the air, was so enticing
That all the area’s mutts came a-sprinting
Something in my brain
Told me I must (not) shoot you

Mongrels in the night, few raucous pooches
Sparring in the night
Upto the moment
That eye we closed,
Little did we know
Sleep was just a million miles away
Seven noisy, fighting dogs away

Every single night, we’ve been together
Partners till daylight, captives forever
Listening to the fights
Of mongrels in the night!

P.S. If you are sleep-deprived enough, you can sing this to Frank S’s "Strangers in the Night"
P.P.S. These are not my friendly neighborhood Mutt & Moron
