The Lyrics


I'm a canine,
And I loudly bay.
I patrol outside,
I keep the punks away.

Trespass, you'll pay,
What can make you feel afraid?
My growl, (My growl, my growl)
Knockin' out my growl. (My growl)

No one has out run me,
I tree cats that flee.
I'm not a meter long,
But your worst enemy.

Well, I should heel; stay,
When the mailman comes my way.
My growl, (My growl, my growl)
Barkin' out my growl. (My growl)

Boooow Wooooow!

Stay, stay, stay.
Nay, nay, nay.

I chase out the bunnies,
Garden abstain.
I get all the bitches baby,
Alpha's my claim.

Well, I'll fetch, catch, play,
I will so not heel, no way.
My growl, (My growl, my growl)
Snarl snout my growls, (My growls)

Snarlin' out my growl.
I even got some bow-ly bays,
With my growl.
Get even with that cat one day,
With my growl.

really cute, Guy. Of course, I can identify because I like dogs, and other animals.. Good rhyming and pacing. 5 growls

Sounds like a removal of the nads is needed to calm him down a bit. Got a grip on most variant US spellings now but was unaware of metre/meter.

I have a question for anyone who reads this & knows the answer. When the UK has an O and a U together (eg. colour) the US drops the U (color), but there are some exceptions (eg. shoulder - why not sholder). Is there any method involved or is it just random that some do and some don't?

You've RCA'd this up very mastering the voice of what a dog might say...

Very smoothly done; some great lines in here, like "trespass, you'll pay", when the mailman comes my way" and love the "Booow wooow" for the Temptations "ooh ooh. Great subs in this one.
