I understand songs tell stories, certain ones paint real life scenarios. Although this track has an adorable quality, I cannot help but picture a woman repeatedly asking a pet store shop keeper “How much is that doggie in the window?” By the climax of this tale he may have thought she had some mental instability. Also take notice of how with each chorus Patti sang louder, meaning not only was she monotonously reprising her question but yelled at him while doing it. Lastly I listened closely and realised all Ms. Page’s verses can be interpreted in this case as expectations she had for this particular dog, but of unnecessarily descriptive detail.
