The Lyrics

This is for our Dog-Eater-In-Chief, the wonderful muslim, Barack Obama. I started off singing, "In the clearing stands a boxer and a tasty morsel he" and it just took off from there. Just before the first "chorus" of Lie-la-lie, remember that the word JUST is the finish of the line it is in as it drops to the end. Try a few times, you'll get it. It took me a bit and I wrote it!
I once ate a Po' Boy though it didn't taste quite right.
I have eaten dogs and tigers and believed the muslim legends of those promises.
Halal meat gleams!
Still a muslim eats what he wants to eat and disregards the screams.

Mmmm! Mmmm! Mmmm!

When I entered Indonesia I was no more than a boy,
Lolo took me to go hunting;
Dogs were quiet in the railway station, running scared.
Laying low.
Seeking out doggie hind-quarters,
From the strays that pass me by.
If the press asks what I'm eating now I'll just...

Lie la lie...

Golfing dog-legs makes me hungry,
So I'm looking for a snack, but I can't find Rover.
Just a come-on from food vendors on the avenue.
I do declare!
There were times I was so hungry that I ate some real food there.

Lie la lie...

Then I'm laying out place settings and I'm hoping for a meal;
Puppy dog.
Then according to halal I'll do the bleeding right.
Bleeding right. Puppy dog.

In the clearing stands a boxer and a tasty morsel he.
And I carry my utensils for a chance to trap my dinner;
And I cut him and I cook him in all my hunger pains.
"I am eating, I am eating, but the muslim still remains."

Lie la lie...

I have a friend who has eaten every critter he could shoot or find on the side of the road. Once he gave me some stew, then told me it was the beaver that had been gnawing on the trees around his lake. I haven't followed the Obama/dog story, but from my understanding of halal, dog is unclean, regardless of how prepared. Same as pork. Perhaps one of our Islamic scholars could advise. Parody is well done.

@Lennie -- I posted my parody of Biden (Ode to VP Joe) here a while ago. Decided I would upload one of my latest. Don't worry. You and Groucho are still the Crème de la Crème.
