The Lyrics

this is pretty random
Why do you purr?
That noise is making me worry
Since you ought to go Bow Wow

Now this is freaky
Like a mouse you are squeaking
But I still hear no Bow Wow

A fish is not what you are will you get out of the ocean
Singing's not your strong suit now you're making a commotion
You're not a bird

Canine is what you are how
Do you forget all the time that
You aren't a cow?

Just say bow wow
Like that young rapper dude
Bow Wow, why do you have to moo?
Bow Wow, Why can't you say these two words?

Don't eat that boat
You know you aren't a goat and
You still need to go Bow Wow

At least you don't
Believe that you are a coat rack
Yet I still hear no Bow Wow

You must think it's a hoot that you act like a spotted owl
If you cannot say bow wow then please at least a growl
That's all I ask

Canine is what you are how
Do you forget all the time that
You aren't a cow?

So say Bow Wow
That's what you ought to do
Bow Wow, puppy, what's wrong with you
Bow Wow, I am distraught with you now

Bow Wow, Bow Wow

Now having such a stupid mutt is really quite a nuisance
If I knew who sold me you I think that I would sue him
Why are you dumb?

You're crazy you're not a man
You should stop trying to write things
You don't have a hand

Just say bow wow
Like that young rapper dude
Bow Wow, why do you have to moo?
Bow Wow, Why can't you say these two words?

Bow Wow, Bow Wow

I have a cat and I think he's in pain. He keeps saying me-ow, me-ow, but he won't tell me where it hurts. You just never know with pets. Nice parody, random but still nice.

Stream of conciousness funny. Woof! Woof Woof.

Speaking as a member of the canine community, I must say your pooch is not at all problematic. Clearly this urbane animal is trying to broaden his horizons! (Speaking as a human, if your cow is mooing perhaps you should lay off the mind-altering substances!! ) Great parody!
Stray Pooch - January 05, 2004 - Report this comment
OK, I meant if your DOG is mooing. Perhaps I should steer clear of the mind-altering wee hours!!!

Everytime Pip and I come up with a parody idea so original we think no one can beat us to it, you do! Do we have a psychic bond here or what? :-0 (We have one in the hopper about a teddy bear that moos)... You beat us to the sea otter one too...

Freud would have a good time with you, Ethan ! Well done!
Johnny D - January 06, 2004 - Report this comment
I know what you mean, Meriadoc and Peregrin - Rick D and Mari D and yours truly Johnny D have from time to time found our mutual parody ideas swirling together simultaneously in the same weird "Amiright Authors Astral Nexus" or whatever you want to call it ....... ooo-OOO-OOO-ooo..... your next stop.... The Twilight Zone..... doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo....

My father has a dog who actually has figured out how to walk on his hind legs, just like a person. He doesn't sound like a cow, but he wouldn't hesitate to pick a fight with one. Good spoof, but just wait for my revenge -- I happen to be a cat person =^..^= -- MM

Pet Clark + Psychedelic Drugs = Ethan Mawyer.

By the way: *Pet* Clark. How perfect is that? Great job, E.

A dog's worst nightmare. Nice job - funny, quirky. (Unlike Spaff's comment - Spaff, had you written, ""Pet Clark how purr-fect is that?" - I would have me-owed a here. Bob, I mean, Kimba
