The Lyrics

Man's best friend.......
Oh, I've been out on the town
Stumbled home, threw up, fell down
But I still have a thirst no ale can quench
Some hard liquor, I'll be fine
Whistle for my smart canine
I let him smell my breath and yell “ Go fench!...fetch!”

Beered up, really steamed
Dog knows what I need
That's my Jim Beam retriever
He's a booze-finding breed

He once hunted grouse
Now it's schnapps behind the couch
Absinthe I once hid behind the sink
He'll make me coffee and some toast
He's the mutt I love the most
And it's ironicRover doesn't drink..

Beered up, really steamed
Dog knows what I need
That's my Jim Beam retriever
He's a booze-finding breed
Queer pup is esteemed
Now he's found my weed
Not just a Jim Beam retriever
He's a spliff-sniffing steed!

*Spoken during instrumental*
"Kristof, a steed's a horse, not a dog"
"I was being metaphorical"
"But it doesn't make any sense!"
"Let's just finish the song, shall we?"
"And what's more, dogs can't make hot bever.."
"Shut up!!"

Beered up, really steamed
Dog knows what I need
That's my Jim Beam retriever
He's a booze-finding breed!!

This is probably why dog is man's best friend. Hilarious. I was LOLing from the mental images after the second line. 5's.

ha! loved the little out-take near the end "what number is this Jo? seven, eight...." etc - I'd forgotten about that - yes a Jim Beam retriever is some special kind of dog, Kristof - if it weren't for the Jim Beam bit - hate the stuff - 555

I see: You're blind drunk, and he's a seeing-redeye dog. And that's NOT a photography joke.

(ABC3) Friday night at Krostof's house: "How many times do I have to tell you--SHAKEN, not STIRRED!" Funny concept brought to its fullest. 444

(ABC3J) Ah, I know this one now, and this was too funny, Kristof. Jim Beam would have been good enough for 5s, but adding in the schnapps, absinthe and weed lines was over the top.

(ABC3-J) As Stu mentioned, the aside at the end was a riot. Nice job with this little number. 555

Absolutely brilliant, and my kind of song. Wish I had a dog like that.
