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

Really loved chasin’ squirrels way way up the tree
Barkey-snarky, barky-snarky at squirrels all the time
Come on down, and he’ll show you a good time
(Fade out)


Hungry Dog 4 comments

Sing along time: Hungry Dog
(apologies to Bruce Springsteen: Hungry Heart)

“Hungry Dog”
Got a life with a Labrador named Jack
He gets fed every day and gets lots of snacks
If you’ve got a dog you know how it’s goin
You start eating ….and they start showin

Everybody’s got a hungry dog
Everybody’s got a hungry dog
Put down a bowl and it’s gone from the start
Everybody’s got a hun,,,,hungry dog

We rescued him from afar
Jack’s always fun and he’s our daily friend
He takes his toys and he rips em apart
Now here he is wanting a snack again

Everybody’s got a hungry dog
Everybody’s got a hungry dog
Put down a bowl and it’s gone from the start
Everybody’s got a hun…hungry dog

Every dog needs a place to rest
Every dog wants to have a home
Don’t make no difference what kind they are
Ain’t no dog like to be alone

Everybody’s got a hungry dog
Everybody’s got a hungry dog
Put down a bowl and it’s gone from the start
Everybody’s got a hun…hungry dog

Everybody’s got a hungry dog oh. Yeah…
Everybody’s got a hun…..hungry dog
Put down a bowl and it’s gone from the start oh Yeah…
Everybody’s got a hungry dog..

He Was The Labrador 9 comments

Sing along time!
(apologies to Queen: We Are The Champions)

“He Was The Labrador”

He paid his dues
But had a good time.
He posed for pictures
And he had some good times

And bad days ‒
He had a few.
His hair was shaved from surgery and shots
But love came through.

(And so we just had fun and fun, and fun, and fun)

He was the Labrador, my friends,
And he kept on fighting ’til the end.
He was the Labrador.
He was the Labrador.
No time for squirrels
‘Cause he was the Labrador of Jack’s World.

He chased some frisbees
And some tennis balls.
He brought us laughs and fun and everything that goes with it.
It was a ball.

But the Mean Old Nasty Tumor,
Had other plans.
It was Jack’s challenge and legacy on the internet,
To chase away the blues.

(And so we just had fun and fun, and fun, and fun)

He was the Labrador, my friends,
And he kept on fighting ’til the end.
He was the Labrador.
He was the Labrador.
No time for squirrels
‘Cause he was the Labrador of Jack’s World.

He was the Labrador, my friends,
And he kept on fighting ’til the end.
He was the Labrador.
He was the Labrador.
No time for squirrels
‘Cause he was the Labrador…….

Sing along Sunday: (apologies to the Village People and Y.M.C.A.) J.A.C.K.

Hey now, there’s a place you can be….
I said, Young dog, there’s no need to feel down.
I said, hey there, you need to know this fun noun.
I said, people there’s some dumb fun around
There’s no need to be un-happy…..

I said, hey there, when you need to be happy.
You can go there, and no doubt you’ll see
A dog who likes to have a good time.

It’s fun to visit at J.A.C.K.
It’s fun to visit at J.A.C.K.

He does stupid tricks or chews up a new toy,
In a way we all enjoy …

It’s fun to visit at J.A.C.K.
It’s fun to visit at J.A.C.K.

You can have a good laugh, you can have a nose snort
Watching Jack be such a good sport…

Hey there, do you like dog hair?
I said, hey there does your dog sit in your chair?
It is said, dogs can make life better with ease
And we all know they love to please!

So no dog should be all by themselves.
I said, hey there, just type in his World,
And just go there, to the J.A.C.K. (World)
I’m sure it will make your day.

It’s fun to stay at the J.A.C. K.
It’s fun to play at the J.A.C. K.

J.A.C.K. (World) ….you’ll find it at J.A.C.K’s World.


Livin with dog hair 5 comments

Sing along time: “Livin with Dog Hair”
(apologies to Bon Jovi: Livin on a Prayer)

People get used to havin dogs
It’s a union we like 
But a price we pay …
It’s ruff, so tough

Dogs lay about and scratch all day
Waiting all the time,
They just want to play
For fun, it’s fun

The house get messy with lots of hair and snot.
It doesn’t make a difference if we clean it or not.
You’ve got each other and here’s a thought
House cleaning ….give it a shot.

Whoa, …you’re half way there
Whoa,… livin’ with dog hair
Hold the broom and we’ll clean it – I swear
Whoa, …livin’ with dog hair

The kitchen is free of hair balls
Time now for the stairs
What’s this new mark on the wall
So ruff, it’s tough

Some may dream of a hair free day
But when the pup’s in sight
It’s worth the time….
Havin a dog, there’s no other way…

The house get messy with lots of hair and snot
It doesn’t make a difference if we clean it or not
You’ve got each other and here’s a thought
House cleaning …..give it a shot.

Livin’ with dog hair

Toys, hair, chewed furniture, spit and snot
You live for the dog when it’s all that you’ve got!

Whoa, …you’re half way there
Whoa,… livin’ with dog hair
Hold the broom and we’ll clean it – I swear
Whoa, livin’ with dog hair


Don’t Start Peein’ 7 comments

Jack Fact: 50+ songs were re-written as Jackisms. Here is an old favorite.
Sing along time. (apologies to Journey: Don’t Stop Believin’)

“Don’t Start Peein’'”

Just an average dog
Livin’ in dog eat dog world
He’s gotta go out in the rain
Goin anyway

He’s a real good boy
House broke and he don’t exploit
He took no time to explain
Goin anyway

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 up and down the hallway
Their bladders filling in the night
Help em, people
Wake when you hear commotion
There it goes again tonight

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…
Pacing up and down the hallway
Their bladders filling in the night
Help em, people
Wake when you hear commotion
There it goes again tonight

[Instrumental interlude]

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

Sing along time: “Jack Had A Wonderful World”

(with apologies to Louis Armstrong and “What a Wonderful World”)

 

I saw teeth that gleam

A pink tongue too

I saw them smile

For me and you

And I think to myself

Jack had a wonderful world

 

I saw eyes so true

They gave us sight

His bright look at life

Through hardship and strife

And I think to myself

Jack had a wonderful world

 

The colors of his Jack show

So funny with this guy

Were also on the posts

Of people saying hi

We saw friends shaking heads

Saying, “What did you do?”

They’re were really saying

“Jack we love you”

 

Now men and ladies cry

Our hearts hurt too

We miss him much more

Than he’ll ever know

And I think to myself

Jack had a wonderful world

 

Yes, I think to myself

Jack had a wonderful world

 

Oh Jack……..


Labrador Pie 8 comments

Sing along time! (American Pie with Apologies to Don McClean)
*If you really want to rock play the original song and sing the lyrics

Labrador Pie

A little while ago…
I can still remember how the internet used to make me smile
And Jack knew if he took a chance, that he could restore the bal-ance
And maybe they’d be happy for a while…

But everyday made us sure… with each story we ’d endure
Bad jokes on a website… we couldn’t take one more bite

I can’t remember how Jack first tried or even how hard he tried
But we knew the old jokes were dead, the day …..he put pizza.. on his head

So hey.. hey …Labrador Pie
If it’s not to heavy do a photo and make us cry
And them good old folks will laugh and sigh
Sayin that’s some dog oh my…that’s some dog oh my…

Did you first click and love and did you see him wear a hockey glove
If Jack told you to?
Now do you believe how he can roll?
Can a silly dog save our soul?
And did you see him on a Jackardy game show?

Well, I know that you’re in love with him
‘Cause I saw you clickin and messaging him
Jack has balanced a few ole shoes
Man, he loves to amuse..

He was a little rescue pup
With a pink tongue we were lucky to pluck
But we knew we were in luck
The day he balanced and tried

So hey.. hey …Labrador Pie
If its not to heavy do a photo and make us cry
And them good old folks will laugh and sigh
Sayin that’s some dog oh my…that’s some dog oh my…

Now, for eight years we’ve been havin fun
Do tricks and getting some sun
But that’s not how it used to be

When the internet was dark and sad
Cause all we saw was stuff that made people mad
And now there’s a dog that represents you and me

Oh, and in case you have looked away
Jack is still here every day
Your loyalty has been earned
The verdict was returned

And while we all wait for his remarks
Jack played Frisbee in the park
And annoyed neighbors by barking in the dark
Until the day he put pizza on his head….

We were singing hey.. hey …Labrador Pie
If it’s not to heavy do a photo and make us cry
And them good old folks will laugh and sigh
Sayin that’s some dog oh my…that’s some dog oh my…

Better and better he wears a hockey sweater
Chasin birds and balancing chili pepper
Each day we snort and laugh…

Sometimes he does something foul on the grass
He’s fun, but does get gas
With the squirrel in the tree being harassed

Now he’s a dog so it’s not always sweet perfume
But we can sing this little tune

So Jack went out to play ball or sniff the plants
Oh, but he never got the chance
‘Cause the critters were all over the place
It was a mad dash and foot race
Do you know what the critters sang?

The day he put pizza on his head
They started singing hey.. hey …Labrador Pie
If it’s not to heavy do a photo and make us cry
And them good old folks will laugh and sigh
Sayin that’s some dog oh my…that’s some dog oh my…

Oh, and then Jack’s posts were all in one place, a compilation of his face
With no need to search again
See Jack be nimble, See Jack be quick
Jack balanced an old stick ’cause fun is his middle name

Oh, and as we watched him each and every day
Our hearts were filled and we said Yea!
No dog born today
Could beat Jack’s display
And as his posts grew and had insight
It was fun both day and night
We even saw cats laughing with delight
The day, he put pizza on his head

The cats were singing hey.. hey …Labrador Pie
If it’s not to heavy do a photo and make us cry
And them good old folks will laugh and sigh
Sayin that’s some dog oh my…that’s some dog oh my…

I saw a news story that gave me the blues
So the internet I thought I would cruise.
Until a dog made me smile and return each day
He even has a webpage with a store, where I can look for songs I heard before
And man it’s just as fun today

And in trees the squirrel schemed
The critters ran and Jack beamed
But not a word was spoken
The posts were all pics and English that was broken

And the critters that Jack watched from head to toe
The squirrel, cat and that pesky crow
They caught the fever and joined the show
The day he put pizza on his head….

They were singing, hey.. hey …Labrador Pie
If its not to heavy do a photo and make us cry
And them good old folks will laugh and sigh
Sayin that’s some dog oh my…that’s some dog oh my…


Sweet Jack-O’-Mine 5 comments

Sing along time (apologies to Neil Diamond/:Sweet Caroline)
*CAUTION! This made Jack’s mamma cry.

“Sweet Jack-O’-Mine”

When Jack began
We knew we’d always love him
But now he’s got his own songs

Was a rescue
And soon life was much funner
Who’d have believed you’d play along

Nose touchin’ hearts
Reachin’ out, licking me, sniffin’ you

Sweet Jack-O’-Mine
(La -La- Lab)
Good dogs never seemed so good
(so-cool so-cool)

You’ve re-defined
(La -La Lab)
How a dog should wear a hood
But then he …

…got the old tumors
And couldn’t be the one and only
You went and had to get the two

And when it hurt
Fans put it on their shoulders
How they hurt while watching you

Nose touchin’ hearts
Reachin’ out, licking me, sniffin’ you

Sweet Jack-O’-Mine
(La -La- Lab)
Good dogs never seemed so good
You’ve re-defined
(La -La -Lab)
How a dog should wear a hood
Oh, no, no….

Sweet Jack-O’-Mine
(La -La -Lab)
Good dogs never seemed so good
(so-cool so-cool)

Sweet Jack-O’-Mine
Good dogs never seemed so good
Sweet Jack-O’-Mine
Good dogs never seemed so good (fade out)
