The Lyrics

For a Youtube listen to Elton John's "Your Song HERE

The author of this parody owns three Border Collies. And yes they stay pretty busy.

I'm a hyped Border Collie, I'm heeling beside,
Don't follow my nose, my mark's freezily eyed.
I've no need for money, I've joy of a kid,
My job is to rouse, stare, not loaf and lick.

If I were a schnauzer,(huh) or dog Eskimo,
Or a canis of notions in a kennelling show.
You'd like me as such and I'm blest to have you.
So lift up this dog and kiss you he'll do.

And I can smell anybody, 'cause I'm a dog,
Or maybe bite kibbles and bits or a bone.
But when you don't mind,
But when you don't mind, I just speak hound not words,
Lick under my hindness with my dog tail curled.

A cat! I say roof! he's ticked off and cross.
I'll foil his curses then go show him who's boss.
Off he runs in fright climbs, as he smote this dog,
Hear how evil that mew, that creep me turned on.

Doggy chews please, and petting, 'cause these things I'm due,
They'll be no forgettin', get two green, and one blue.
Everyday our thing is, just a playful scene,
No one will cheat us guys of our routine.

And I must smell every bum, see, of every dog,
It's just a light sample, but it must be done.
And nope we don't mind,
And nope we don't mind, if our butts smell like turds,
An underfull ripe sniff with tail up and curled.

Keep rodents in line,
Keep rodents in line, when they creep round my world,
How wonderful life is when I'm chasing squirrels.

John - I'm sad to see that canines are not a fave of yours but glad you liked my tribute to the species Thanks!

JD - I sang it to my dogs and they howled. (not sure if they liked it or my singing voice sounded like a howl at the moon) Thanks for your review and comment.

Cakes - Your canine is very modest and very lady like. No advancing to the rear for your royal and no doubt loyal lady. Thank you.

Ant - I could not resist using "roof" in this parody. It so fit - Thanks.

2Eagle - I have two dogs that could be show dogs but that would only make them snobby and high strung, not to mention "notionable". And whoda thunk that JB didn't like dogs. Seems I've seen that comment from him before. I can not imagine a world without man's best friend. Thanks so much.

Alvin - It took me a moment to get the St Bernard ref - then I remembered who wrote EJ's lyrics. Such a fine compliment. Thanks you Sir Alvin. We'll save "Your Hindness for the Queen". BR> Merry - I don't know what I'm going to do if I need to use Elliot in a mob parody. Somehow Ness-ness is going to be hard to ness around with. Thanks!

A bit "ruff" if it was sung, but as a written parody the subs in this song were amazing. And since we're basing this contest on the written work rather than how it would sound as a recording I have no choice other than to give it 5 doggie treats.

This song was an absolute howl! Pardon the pun, but I happen to be a bit of a dog lover myself. We own a dalmation named Rowan (we named himafter Rowan Atkinson). Our favourite character from a John Candy film happens to be Barfolomew from Spaceballs.

(ABC) Bow Wow! A howl of approval for you. I like your lyrics better than Bernie Taupin's.

(ABC4Y) I'm not a big fan of dogs (too loud!) but this was very good. Particularly liked the 'lick under my hindness' line.
Guy - August 18, 2008 - Report this comment
Matt - Though "ruff" it may be, I'm happy you didn't "growl" at it. - Thanks.

Dr. Music - Speaking in the first person plual back at ya, we, myself and my three Border Collies wag our tails with appreciation. Barfolomew lent me his movie prop tail so I could wag with my pack.

Ag - Bernie has put out some awesome lyrics for EJ. That is why I like to parody EJ originals. This is quite a complement. Way thanks for the boost, friend.

BPC AKA COP - Dogs are some of the best folks I know. Thanks for the thumbs up on this. My alter ego (2-LOUD) is pleased as well, and that is indeed rare for him.

(ABC) I don't own a dog because I'm in an apartment, but I love puppies, and as my own song "Doggie" suggests, I love dogs in general, though obviously not the funniest song in the comp, one of the cutest, and for that, still get 5s

BAD - I have a large 6 1/2 foot privacy fence that borders a larger than normal backyard for the area that I live in. So having three of these full sized dogs is not a problem. Collectively I call them my "dog-ons". Each one is unique in personality and extremely intelligent. I am most definately a dog person and IMO they don't come any better than border collie. Thanks for the boost and I hope someday you get a place where you can have and enjoy a fine dog.

Sir Guy, ~Le Roi de ~K9~ Parodie~ I enjoyed this again. My childhood was populated with dog friends! I believe that humans 'began' with the protection of dogs, and that our civilization began with the development of the Cat!

(ABC4) it's hard to make a parody really funny when you're syllable-matching as closely as you did here, Guy, put you still managed it - for some reason my fave line was "And I can smell anybody, 'cause I'm a dog" -555

Guy, somewhere the late John Candy is looking down at you from Heaven and smiling.
