Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

*A three-way pun, of sorts. Hock can denote "steal," "pawn," or "any white Rhine wine."
I keep a close watch on this kid of mine,
I keep my eyes wide open all the time
So he won't consume products from the vine.
Keep him in line. . .
I lock the wine.

I do it 'cause he once got in my hooch.
He drank a lot and gave some to our pooch.
And then the dog gave me a vermouth smooch.
Give me felines,
They won't touch wine.

I said, "Why don't you drink Corona Light?
It tastes like water and won't get you tight.
Although you'll probably have to piss all night."
He doesn't whine
And feigns, that's fine.

He says, "OK." I've got him on my side!
So I decide to take a little ride.
He picks the lock and leaves a note that's snide:
"It tastes so fine!"
He hocked* the wine.

The dog with the vermouth smooch was the best line. :-)

This is the second parody on the site, as far as I know, to rhyme "hooch" with "pooch," following my own "Big Slobbers." I will certainly raise a toast to this doggone parody!
