Glee: The 3D Concert Movie Motion Picture Soundtrack
Released: November 30, 2010
By: Florence + The Machine
Sung by: New Directions

Episode: Special Education

Dog Days Are Over by Florence + The Machine is featured in Special Education, the ninth episode of Season Two. It is sung by Mercedes and Tina with the New Directions singing back-up.

Will gives the solo parts to Rachel, but she refuses because she is still upset about her recent break-up with Finn, so she passes it on to the two "unsung heroes," Mercedes and Tina. The song is the last part of the episode, making it the second time New Directions sung a celebratory song after Sectionals.

The song was originally performed by Florence + The Machine from their debut album Lungs. It became a hit, pushing the originally 'Indie' labelled into prominence.

Lyrics

Tina:
Happiness hit her
Like a train on a track

Mercedes:
Coming towards her
Stuck, still no turning back

Tina:
She hid around corners (New Directions: Oooo)
And she hid under beds

Mercedes:
She killed it with kisses (New Directions: Ooo, ooo, ooo)
And from it she fled

Tina:
With every bubble (New Directions: Oooo)
She sank with a drink

Mercedes:
And washed it away down the kitchen sink (New Directions: Ooo, ooo, ooo)

Tina (New Directions):
The dog days are over (Oooo)
The dog days are done
The horses are comin' (Ooo, ooo, ooo)
So you better run

Mercedes and Tina (with New Directions):
(Run fast for your mother), run fast for your father
(Run for your children), for your sisters and your brothers
(Leave all your love and your longing behind)
You can't carry it with you if you want to survive
(The dog days are over), the dog days are done
(Can you hear the horses? 'Cause here they come!)

Tina:
And I never wanted
Anything from you
Except everything you had
And what was left after that too
Oh

Mercedes with Tina and New Directions:
Happiness hit her like a bullet in the back
Struck from a great height
By someone who should know better than that
The dog days are over
The dog days are done
Can you hear the horses?
'Cause here they come

Mercedes and Tina (with New Directions):
Run fast for your mother, (New Directions: Oooo) run fast for your father
Run for your children, for your sisters and your brothers
Leave all your love and your longing behind (New Directions: Ooo, ooo, ooo)
You can't carry it with you, if you want to survive.
(The dog days are over) (New Directions: Oooo)
The dog days are done
(Can you hear the horses? 'Cause here they come!) (New Directions: Ooo, ooo, ooo)

New Directions (Mercedes and Tina with New Directions):
The dog days are over (Mercedes: Yea-ee-yeaah!)
The dog days are done (Here they come!)
The horses are comin', so you'd better run (Here they come!)
The dog days and over
The dog days are done (Here they come!)
The horses are comin', so you'd better run
