The Lyrics

For Artistry Competition.
As a friend you're my best
But you should know
You're covered in fleas, but that's OK
There's shampoo made for this, you know
But before long, the third time today

Oh not again, no!
You piddled again

'Cause you're a dog
And I'm not
Without a doubt
That much I know
You're a dog
And I'm not
From your tail to your snout
That makes it so

Can't keep off the table
I say "get down!"
You use chewing rings
You ought to know by now
To not chew my leather ...soles
We need training more to calm you down

Oh not again, no!
You piddled again!

'Cause you're a dog
And I'm not
I take you out
For a stroll
You're a dog
And I'm not
Pour steak and sauerkraut
Into your bowl

To our mailman, a pest
I think you know
You're bothered by flies, but that's OK
You rolled 'round in something, I know
Gotta give you another bath today

Oh not again, no!
You piddled again!

'Cause you're a dog
And I'm not
Without a doubt
That much I know
You're a dog
And I'm not
From your tail to your snout
That makes it so

'Cause you're a dog
And I'm not
To be or to be not
Shakespeare said so
You're a dog
And I'm not
Together we smoke pot
We share a bowl

Had to YouTube the OS... I like 'em/it! And the parody? --a brilliant bit o' dog'gerel! (Nice you didn't go for the easy Pooch-piddlin' get with Fountains of Wayne...)

"To be or not" was random, but so was "You're a dog, and I'm not", and I loved that about this parody that line just made me giggle. "You're a dog and I'm not".

Also had to find a youtube for the OS, upon which god-awful mess your parody is a huge improvement. Loved the "rolled 'round in something ..." bit -- had a Beagle years ago who managed to be lovable despite a predelection for rolling in was cat sh!t. A full (and only slightly hyperbolic) descripttion of that dog, written shortly after his demise (of natural causes) in 1986. can be read at http://www.amiright.com/parody/misc/gilbertsullivan70.shtml :-)

(Artistry) Seemed a bit bland, and I doubt letting your dog smoke pot is a good idea, but this paced pretty well, and had some interesting lines.

(Artistry) Your dog on pot: "All you've got is cat food? I'll take it, man, I'm starvin'." The dog on pot image was the highlight of the parody, I wonder how this one would have turned out with that as the main focus -- "'Cause you're a dog -- and on pot".

(Artistry) That was absolutely wonderful Agrimorfee--I wasn't expecting any gems in this round because of the simplicity of the original artist--you really put a smile on my face with this one. What's interesting is the line that got the biggest giggle out of me was near the beginning "You're a dog, and I'm not--without a doubt" Stating the obvious just really worked because it kinda satires TOS without directly naming it or the artist and while still sticking to your own theme. . .awesome job-cute parody, and still funny all the same.
