"Proud to Be a Dog" is the closing number to Teacher's Pet: The Movie, where Spot realizes that his real destiny is to be a dog. It's a reprise of "I Wanna Be a Boy".


Spot: Back down the south end of the leash is where my place is

Houses: Chasing balls and licking faces

Spot: A simple mutt living a dog's life. Now I'm in the thrall of natures call, it's my destiny to be man's best friend

Hydrant and Chorus: And to bite your own rear end

Spot: And so it's bye-bye to species second-guessing, this Rover's learned his lesson.

I'm proud to be a dog!!!

Dogs: The freedom fido can't be denied-o

Spot: I'm glad to be a dog

Dogs: A dog and nothing but a

Blue Fairies: Dog's what he must be

Spot: I'll be spot-on

Chorus: With his pants not on

Spot: Because at last, I see, that a tree needs a log

Leonard: And a sow needs a hog

Spot: Just like London needs fog

Leonard: Or a princess a frog

Spot: Well a friend needs a friend,

Spot and Leonard: A road needs a bend, a film needs an end

Everyone: A boy needs a dog! Needs a boy, needs a dog, needs a boy, needs a dog, needs a boy, needs a dog, boy, dog, boy, dog-boy-dog-boy-dog-boy-dog-boy-dog!!!
