He Shook Me All Day Long

Sing along time: “He Shook Me All Day Long”
(apologies to AC/DC : She Shook Me All Night Long”)

(Guitar intro)

He’s a fun machine he licks his food bowl clean
He the most fun dog that I ever seen
He has deep searching eyes telling me no lies
Bringing me his frisbee to see if it flies
Throw it and watch it soar
Then we played tug of war
I told him to give but he said what for
Cause he gave it a shaking
My arm was quaking
My back was aching
And we were playing tug
And he shook me all day long
Yeah he …shook me all day long

I’m working extra hard to get a firm grip
I pretty sure I heard the frisbee rip
Boy is he ever strong pulling me along
Got it and threw it again
Now he’s come back for more
Got it again and now we pull it around
Here we go again because ,he loves this game
Cause he gave it a shaking
My arm was quaking
My back was aching
And we were playing tug
And he shook me all day long
Yeah he, shook me all day long
And knocked me down
He shook me all day long
He had it and was shaking
He shook me all day long
Yeah he shook me….
When he shook it

(guitar riff)

He really shook me it’s true
Shook me all day long
He shook me cause he is so strong
Yeah, yeah, I’m gonna be sore before too long
He really got me after I threw
Shook me all day long
Yeah he shook me
Yeah he shook me
All day long…..

Funny Dog 2 comments

Sing along time: “Funny Dog”
(apologies to Billy Joel: Piano Man)

(piano/harmonica intro)

It’s 6 o’clock on a Sunday
The regular crowd logs on in
There’s a dog on the floor next to me
As I lean over and scratch his chin

(harmonica)

The dog says, “Dad can you play frisbee with me
You throw it and see how far it goes
I’ll catch it and not miss a beat
And I’ll get muddy feet
Cause I run and catch your bad throws ”

La la lab, dog, da dog
Lab lab di da da da dog

Post a pic you’re the funny dog
Post us a pic alright
Everyone needs a good chuckle sometimes
And a pic of a Jack is just right

Now my dog likes to get his photo taken
He loves the cameras cause you see
When the cameras comes out and he does a trick
There’s lots of treats for he

Then Jack says “Dad our bad jokes are really goofy”
As we smile I scratch his ears and face
“Well, I’m sure that I could catch that squirrel
If it was only a fair race “

La la lab, dog, da dog
Lab lab di da da da dog

Now Jack is a real dog I insist
Who takes everything in stride
And plays with his toys and looks for critters
And really loves to take a ride

(harmonica)

And the Fedex man is delivering stuff
As Jack is chewing on a bone
Yes, he barks and he growls and scares him away
Cause it’s his job protecting his home

(piano riff)

Post a pic you’re the funny dog
Post us a pic alright
Everyone needs a good chuckle sometimes
And a pic of Jack is just right

(harmonica)

It’s a pretty good post for a Sunday
And that gives us a smile
‘Cause we knows that it’s time to have fun and play
And to forget about life for a while

And Jack’s talent makes us marvel
As people wonder what he’ll do each day
And they see his pics on-line and snort at this canine
And say “Jack thanks for the smile today”

La la lab, dog, da dog
Lab lab di da da da dog

Post a pic you’re the funny dog
Post us a pic alright
Everyone needs a good chuckle sometimes
And a pic of Jack is just right

Dogs of Summer

Sing along time: (apologies to Don Henley: Boys of Summer)

“The Dogs Of Summer”

Pawprints on the road
Pawprints on the beach
Wet dog smell in the air
The dog went to the beach
Doggie break, doggie treat
The fun goes down as we roam
If you went to his house
He was out and not home

But you can see him-
Wet black fur shinin’ in the sun
He’s got his hair matted back and his tongue out baby
And he’ll tell you even though summer’s gone, his fun isn’t done
After the dogs of summer have gone

We will never forget the sight
Soon it will be a dream
Chasin critters while sun was blazin
Now we do it all by moon beam
Now it gets dark quick and we will have to wear gloves
But hey, fun will always be back
And we’ll see what dog fun is made of

But you can see him-
Wet black fur shinin’ in the sun
He’s got his hair matted back and his tongue out baby
And he’ll tell you even though summer’s gone, his fun isn’t done
After the dogs of summer have gone

Out in the yard today, saw a toad hopping after a fly like a maniac
Dad’s voice got really loud and he said “Leave it alone. Let’s go get you a bone.”
We went in and watched tv
What was the show?
Something about whatever
Just in, but want out again-

But you can see him-
Wet black fur shinin’ in the sun
He’s got his hair matted back and his tongue out baby
And he’ll tell you even though summer’s gone, his fun isn’t done
After the dogs of summer have gone`

But you can see him-
Wet black fur shinin’ in the sun
He’s got his tongue hanging out and his hair matted baby
And he’ll tell you even though summer’s gone, his fun isn’t done
After the dogs of summer have gone

Toys on the Floor 1 comment

Sing along time:
(apologies to Three Dog Night : Joy to the World aka Jeremiah Was a Bullfrog)

“Toys on the Floor”

Jack-a-roo was a good dog
Was a good dog of mine
He never picked up his toys nor made his bed
But I helped him when he whined
And we always had a mighty fine time

Singin’
Toys on the floor
All the crows and squirrels, now
Toys that he squishes and get stomped by me
Toys is all we see

If I left them toys undisturbed
Tell you what it be
I’d see stuffing on floors, to the doors, while he snores
Look at the debris

Singin’ now
Toys on the floor
All the crows and squirrels, now
Toys that he squishes and get stomped by me
Toys is all we see

(guitar)

You know we love them doggies
Love to have some fun
I’m a new toy provider, let’s go outsider
A canine-playin’ sum of my dog
I said a canine-playin’ sum of my dog

Toys on the floor
All the crows and squirrels
Toys that he squishes and get stomped by me
Toys is all we see

Toys on the floor
All the crows and squirrels
Toys that he squishes and get stomped by me
Toys is all we see

Toys on the floor
All the crows and squirrels
Toys on the floor
Toys is all we see

Toys on the floor
All the crows and squirrels
Toys that he squishes and get stomped by me
Toys is all we see

Toys on the floor
All the crows and squirrels
Toys that he squishes and get stomped by me
Toys is all we see

Toys on the floor
All the crows and squirrels
Toys that he squishes and get stomped by me
Toys is all we see

Toys on the floor
All the crows and squirrels
Toys that he squishes and get stomped by me
Toys is all we see

Jack He Be Good 1 comment

Sing along time: “Jack He Be Good”
(apologies to Chuck Berry : Johnny B. Goode)

Deep down on the internet near places barely seen,
Showin up without warning on computer screen
There played a black dog who did tricks for food
Who went by then name of Jack and he was good
He never ever learned to walk on a leash so well,
But he could balance stuff like ringing a bell.

Go Go
Go Jackie Go
Go
Go Jackie Go
Go
Go Jackie Go
Go
Go Jackie Go
Go
Jack he be good

He use to put stuff on his head and do a quick trick
Or sit beneath the trees and chew up a stick.
Oh, the internet friends marveled how on his head stuff stayed,
And telling his dad to be sure Jack got paid.
The people watching the passing by, they would stop and say
Oh my that black lab can make things stay

Go Go
Go Jackie Go
Go
Go Jackie Go
Go
Go Jackie Go
Go
Go Jackie Go
Go
Jack he be good

(guitar riff: this is where you duck-walk)

His friends told Jack you the man,
And you should be all over the internet land.
Many people seeing you be a clown
Not just nearby but the entire world around
Spitting their coffee as they watch him play
Saying Jack he was good today.

Go Go
Go Jackie Go
Go
Go Jackie Go
Go
Go Jackie Go
Go
Jack he be good

Don’t Start Peein’ 1 comment

Sing along time: ” Don’t Start Peein’’
(apologies to Journey and Don’t Stop Believin’)

Just an average dog
Livin’ in a cozy world
He’s wants out to pee, or he’ll go anywhere

He’s a real good boy
House broke and he don’t exploit
He’s wants out to pee, or he’ll go anywhere

He zinged out and across the room
A brief whine and he went zoom
I would smile but that ain’t right
Once out, he goes on ,and on and on

Canines…. waiting….
Pacing around the hallway
Their bladders filling in the night

Help em, people
Wake when you hear the commotion
Happinin’ sometimes in the night

Workin’ hard to change his will
Nobody wants a spill
Sometimes we chance it and roll the dice just one more hour

Some will win
Some will lose
Some were born to dry their shoes

Oh, the saga never ends
Once out, he goes on, and on, and on

Canines…. waiting….
Their bladders filling in the night
Pacing around the hallway

Help em, people
Wake when you hear the commotion
Happinin’ sometimes in the night

[Instrumental interlude]

Don’t start peein’
Hold on to that feelin’
Help em, people !!!!!!!

Don’t start peein’’
Hold onnnnnnnnn!!!!
Help em, people ……..

Don’t start peein’
Hold on to that feelin’
Help em, people…..

Catch That Squirrel 1 comment

Sing along time: “Catch That Squirrel”
(Jessie’s Girl: apologies to Rick Springfield)

Jack is a dog,
Yeah, we know he’s good most of the time 
But he needs to make a change
Maybe learn how to climb
Jack needs to catch that squirrel before we lose our mind

And he’s watching with intense eyes
And he’s salivating and drooling, I just know it!
And he’s dreaming about it, all day and night

You know I wish that he’d,catch that squirrel
I wish that he’d catch that squirrel
Where can I buy a good squirrel trap?

We play along with the game
Doesn’t that seem just a little odd and strange
You know that squirrel eats the bird seed and doesn’t give a hoot
I wanna catch him but my wife thinsk he’s cute

Cause Jacks watching with intense eyes
And he’s salivating and drooling, I just know it!
And he’s dreaming about it, all day and night

You know I wish that he’d catch that squirrel
I wish that he’d catch that squirrel
Where can I buy a good squirrel trap?

Please catch that squirrel
I wish he’d catch that squirrel
Where can I buy a good…
Where can I buy a good squirrel trap?

And Jack keeps chasin them varmints all the time
Watchin em go scramble up a tree…
He’s been patient he’s been waitin his time
Is that the way is always gonna be?
(guitar riff)

Tell me, will he ever catch a squirrel like that?
(guitar again)

You know I wish that he’d catch that squirrel
I wish that he’d catch that squirrel

Where can I buy a good squirrel trap?

Catch that squirrel
I wish that he’d catch that squirrel
He wants; I want to catch that squirrel….

Hit Me With Dog Snot 1 comment

Sing along time: Hit Me With His Dog Snot
(apologies to Pat Benatar “Hit Me With Your Best Shot”)

Well he’s a real good doggie
With a fun history 
Of ripping up your toys
And playin with me
That’s OK,
I see how he does it
But when he sneeze
It’s time to duck it

He hit me with dog snot…
Yea… he hit me with dog snot
Got me with his dog snot
He fired away

He got it on me on my good shirt
Hey that’s not fair
But wait hey, it’s all in my hair
Wipe it off, it’s all in vain
No doubt he’ll sneeze and get me again

He hit me with dog snot….
Yea… he hit me with dog snot
Got me with his dog snot
He fired away

(guitar riff)

Well he’s a real good doggie
With a fun history
Of ripping up toys
And playin with me
Before I get another splotch
On my snot slick face
I better make sure
My shirt I can replace

He hit me with dog snot…
Come on! .. he hit me with dog snot
Got me with his dog snot
He fired away

He hit me with dog snot…
Why did he hit me with dog snot?
Got me with his dog snot
He fired awaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyy!

Brownie Eyed Dog 3 comments

Sing along time: (apologies to Van Morrison, Brown Eyed Girl) 

Brownie Eyed Dog

Hey, where did he go
Days when the laughs came?
Dog on the internet
Playing a new game,
Laughing and a-running, hey, hey,
Skipping and a-jumping
He’s a goofy morning dog with
His tail waggin and a-thumping
And he’s, ….a brownie-eyed dog,
Jack,…….. a brownie -eyed dog.

Whatever happened
To the lil pup we knew
Chasing down squirrels was a good time, while… barking to let them know.
Standing at the boardwalk laughing
Hide and seek with a tennis ball
Slipping and a-sliding
And sometimes he tripped and fall
With you, my a brownie-eyed dog,
Jack , my brownie-eyed dog.

Do you remember when we used to sing
Sha lab lab lab lab lab lab lab lab lab lab dee dah
Just like that
Sha lab lab lab lab lab lab lab lab lab lab dee dah
Lab dee dah.

So easy to find new friends
Now that he’s so well known.
I saw friends just the other day,
They had his pics on their phone!
Facebook memories bout this dog
Let’s us laugh and smile from seeing
A dog sit on the kitchen floor
Brownie on his cranium , with you, my brownie-eyed dog
You, my brownie-eyed dog
Now you know the tune it’s your turn…. to sing
Sha lab lab lab lab lab lab lab lab lab lab dee dah
Laying in the green grass
Sha lab lab lab lab lab lab lab lab lab lab dee dah
Dee dah dee dah dee dah dee dah dee dah dee
Sha lab lab lab lab lab lab lab lab lab lab dee dah
Dee dah lab dee dah lab dee dah lab

Born to Love 3 comments

Sing along time: (apologies to Bruce Springsteen: Born To Love)

Born to Love

In the past they had to sweat it out on streets or a crate away from love it seemed 
All day they waited for someone in conditions that were often too obscene
Sprung from cages some just in time,
To homes they are taken and ready for a howlin good time
Oh-oh, Baby you saved these dogs from attack
Free from the death trap, it’s a s proven map
They got get out, old or young
`Cause dogs like this, baby they were born to love

yes, folks they are

If you let them in then they will be your friend
They guard your house and televisions
Just wrap your heart round the fur and spit
And say goodbye to your tensions
Together you will break the trap
Now dogs run till they drop, with balls they never bring back
Oh-oh, they walk with you until you grow tired
`Cause baby they were just scared and lonely crier
But now they know how it feels
They don’t have to worry bout life
Cause they know when your love is real

Oh, can you handle the pee
(Saxophone solo)

Inside your house you learn the sounds of whines and groans so they can go out in the yard
In cars you see them in rearview mirrors
And the windows get so smudged
The amusing bark heard while in the park
Dogs may tear up the house to show you’re missed
But they will die for you defending you in a fight
How could someone not like this! Huh?

1-2-3-4!

Everyone’s life is packed busy but find time to take them for a drive
Maybe a quick toy play or run tonight
Or a game of seek and hide

Together you can solve some of the madness
A dog will love you with all the gladness in its soul
Oh-oh, they find a way to get under your skin
But when they lick you on your face
Cause they really got to go
Then you see them in the sun
Cause dogs like this
Baby they were born to run

Oh honey, dogs like this
Baby they were born to love

Come on sing with me, dogs like this
Baby they were born to love

Love uh-uh-ve
Wo-oo-oo-ff
Run-uh-un-oh-oh-oh-oh
Run-uh-uh-uh-un
Wo-oo-oo-ff
Whoa-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Run-uh-uh-un
