Sound asleep Sunny day Hear somebody call my name Andy: Wake up Reggie, time to go to get up Reggie: Ugh... Stretch and yawn Collar on To the lawn, and do the same Andy: Just like yoga! Reggie: Yeah, downward dog... Barking loud and chasing clouds away Playing all my favorite games to play Watering the old oak tree Sniffing where I shouldn't be Try it out it's really fun you'll see When you're a dog Back at home Free to roam I can do just what I please Dig a hole Chew the bone And don't forget to scratch those fleas Reggie: Uh did I say fleas? I meant dry skin Andy: Yeah, right... I don't need to learn to sit or stay I don't hear a single word you say But if you say you have a treat I'll be waiting at your feet One more treat would make the day complete When you're a dog Barking loud and chasing clouds away Going for a ride on holiday Seeing all the sights to see With my best friend next to me Hanging out the window is a breeze When you're a dog Reggie: Yeah, hangin' out with you is a real breeze too Andy Z! Andy: Hey, thanks Reggie

I've fallen for someone Who's way out of this world It can't be helped You are no ordinary girl And now I’ve found a way To let the words and music say That you're the one for me Answer if you please Will you be my Alien Girlfriend? Your every move is like A note upon the page (Pleadia) The sweetest melody To ever hit the stage And if you’d sing with me I'm sure that we would always be in perfect harmony A stellar symphony Will you be my Alien Girlfriend? I’ve told myself I know full well This girl is way out of my league But in my mind I see us Dancing through the galaxy Will you be my Alien Girlfriend? Yes I know you’re not from this planet You’re so cool, I can’t even stand it Will you be my Alien Girlfriend?

There are people in our lives Who come around in perfect time A special someone to believe in It's a feeling that's so strong As if we've known them all along A gift of grace they lift us up where we belong You’re my friend You’re my friend You’re my friend ‘til the end The one who always teaches me And opens my eyes so I can see You’re my friend You’re my friend You’re my friend ‘til the end The one who’s always there for me Through thick and through thin You’re my friend And though our lives go to extremes We make a pretty awesome team As long as we’re in it together I’ll be your voice when you can’t sing You’ll be my second set of wings To rise above the clouds and see the brighter things You’re my friend You’re my friend You’re my friend ‘til the end The one who always teaches me And opens my eyes so I can see You’re my friend You’re my friend You’re my friend ‘til the end We’ll never have to be alone, no never again (You’re my friend) And we'll be friends until our final race is run Two shadows riding out to greet the setting sun And when we meet again I’ll look into your eyes and then You will remember me Your friend eternally You’re my friend
