French Dog Blues

Band songlist

Info

French Dog Blues is a Babyshambles song that features as track #8 on their second album, Shotter's Nation. The track is credited to Doherty, Ian Brown and Kate Moss. French Dog Blues was first heard in 2006, when the Paris Rehearsals were uploaded to Doherty's website, also known as French Dog Blues.

Although a music video has been made, directed by David Mullett, the track has not been released as a stand-alone single. The music video doesn't feature Babyshambles, but drawn cartoon versions of them, playing their instruments along with a drawn version of the French Dog, the hero of the song. The illustrations in the video were done by Neal Fox.

Lyrics

I model lacklustre panicky in vain search for the remedy
No words only melody come so I take the day off
My love, my love, she sits with me, I love, I love her company
Raindrops on roses and dust-filled trinkets

So, this washes over you
My French dog blues
Chien, bleu, chien, franzosischer hund
And the French dog blues
And the French dog blues
By the French dog blues

Never surrender to flattery
Frown on, come down on duplicity
And above all things my son,
Take the money and run

I still model lacklustre panicky in vain search for the remedy
No words only melody came
I take another day off

Oh, this washes over you
French dog blues
Chien, bleu, chien, franzosischer hund
Yeah, I see you

I only ever wanted the one with the flag
All you ever wanted was a 60 dollar bag
And a cheap limousine for your deep pile dreams on the highway
on the highway
highway, oh

Chien, bleu, franzosischer hund

And the French dog blues
And the French dog blues
By, the French dog blues
And the French dog....
