The Lyrics

This song was written for all the dogs who have to stay at home all day while their owners are away.
Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future

I want to bark like a beagle
Up a tree
Bark like a beagle
At that squirrel teasing me
He just threw a walnut
Down at me
Whoa, I have a contusion

Chase the mailman
And bite him on the feet
Whine and whimper
Till I get somethin' to eat
Bark at people
Walkin' down the street
Whoa, what a commotion

I want to run like a beagle
To a tree
Run like a beagle
That's where I ... "excuse me!"
I want to run like a beagle
Till I'm free
And dig up all the nasturnums

Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future

I want to scratch like a beagle
At my fleas
Scratch like a beagle
Cause I'm feeling itch-itchy
I want to scratch like a beagle
Till I'm free
And the fleas are in all your cushions

Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future

Very nicely done!

Nicely done, but that "time keeps on slippin'" part begs for a change of words. Since he is a beagle, why not refer to the most famous beagle of all time?--"They call me Snoopy, Snoopy, Snoopy, I have no future..." :)

Here's the World War I Flying Ace zooming you some fives from his Sopwith Camel.
