The Lyrics

Written by my friend Charles, who likes the idea that this is on the web. We will both use the name Static.
I get up every morning
At the 'larm clocks warnin'
Go downstairs to the kitchen
I lift up my leg and begin to peg
And I know my owners gone fishin'

And if he's to late
I'm getting nothin' on my plate
Because I know that I've been found
And I don't want to mention
That I now have detention
So I go to the park to be a hound

And I'll be takin' care of business
On the rug
Takin' care of business
Like a thug
Takin' care of business
Day or night
Takin' care of business
Soiling anything in sight
Break Down

Orientals are the best
But they never stand the test
Of lasting through a couple
Of .....sessions

And when my owner gets home
I'm not gettin' a bone
Because I know that I have been bad
So when he gets home, and yells like a megaphone
I just call for my dad

And I'll be takin' care of business
On the rug
Takin' care of business
Like a thug
Takin' care of business
Day or night
Takin' care of business
Soiling anything in sight
Break Down

Now I'm out on the Street thanks to My Business
Oh Yeah

We did this in a Poetry Slam and everybody loved it! The background music is on Kazaa as: "Life as a Dog Finished and Usable Version" or something like that. Ain't it cool?P.S. I helped him with the thug and keg parts, and with the music help. He loves the idea that this is on the web. Seeya soon. Static...
