Dog Days Are Over
GleeKids DogDays1
Album: Glee: The Music, The Complete Season Two
Released: November 30, 2010
By: Florence and The Machine
Sung by: New Directions
Solos: Tina and Mercedes
Place: The April Rhodes Civic Pavilion
Episode: Special Education

Dog Days Are Over by Florence + The Machine is featured in Special Education, the ninth episode of Season Two. It's a duet sung by Tina and Mercedes with the New Directions singing back-up. Will wanted to give the solo parts to Rachel, but she refused the solo(for the first time) because she was still upset from her recent break-up with Finn, so she passed it to the two "unsung heroes", Tina and Mercedes. 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. The song was originally scheduled for release in Nov. 24, 2008, but it was pulled to Dec.1, 2008.

Lyrics

Tina:
Happiness hit her
Like a train on a tra-a-ack

Mercedes:
Coming towards her,
Stuck, still no turning ba-a-ack

Tina:
She hid around corners
And she hid under beds

Mercedes:
She killed it with kisses
And from it she fled

Tina:
With every bubble,
She sank with a drink

Mercedes:
And washed it away down the kitchen sink

Tina:
The dog days are over
The dog days are done
The horses are comin'
So you better run

Mercedes and Tina with New Directions:
Run fast for your mother,

Mercedes and Tina
Run fast for your father

Mercedes and Tina with New Directions:
Run for your children;

Mercedes and Tina
for your sisters and brothers

Mercedes and Tina with New Directions:
Leave all your love and your longing behind

Mercedes and Tina
You can't carry it with you, if you want to survive.

Mercedes and Tina with New Directions:
The dog days are over

Mercedes and Tina
The dog days are done

Mercedes and Tina with New Directions:
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

Tina and Mercedes with 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, run fast for your father
Run for your children; for your sisters and 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

The dog days are over
The dog days are done (Mercedes and Tina: Here they come!)
The horses are comin'
So you'd better run
The dog days and over
The dog days are done (Mercedes and Tina: Here they come!)
The horses are comin',
So you'd better run
