"A Boy Needs a Dog" is a song from the 2004 movie Teacher's Pet: The Movie. It was sung twice in the film. The short version was sung by Leonard Helperman before Leonard and his mom left for their trip to Florida, and the long version was sung by the same characters when Scott Leadready II (Spot as a human) decides to return to Leonard.

It was performed by Shaun Fleming as Leonard Helperman and Nathan Lane as Spot Helperman/Scott "Manly Manning" Leadready II.

Short version

Leonard Helperman: I know it's been said, 

Everyone needs someone.

A loyal companion,

To share in life's fun.

For a day at the park,

Or a game of leap frog.

(Spoken: Sing it with me, Spot.)

Leonard and Spot: A friend needs a friend,

A boy needs a dog

Long version

Scot: I know it's been said,

Everyone needs someone

A loyal companion,

To share in life's fun

For a day at the park

Or a game of leap frog

A friend needs a friend

A boy needs a dog


A small hand to shake (Leonard: Wanna run a race?)

For a bowl full of grub (Leonard: What a funny face)

A face to be licked,

When a tummy gets rubbed

Like a mom and a dad

Need their bundle of joy

Both: A friend needs a friend

A dog needs a boy


Scot: I can't go on with just half of my heart

Leonard: Nothing and no one can keep us apart

Both: It's a permanent bond you can never destroy

Scot: A friend needs a friend

Leonard: A friend needs a friend

Scot: I've got to get back to my boy! (Leonard: A friend needs a dog needs a boy!)
