The Lyrics

For my dog Millie and all the 'man's best friend's out there.
(Before the song starts it should be noted that every instance of the cool slurred guitar sound in 'Joker' will be replaced by the cool far-off sound of a dog howling. I'll it out the first time it happens.)

My owner got me a new chew toy
I tug but he just won't let go
I howl at the bright moon "Howling"<---
And I love an odor I don't know

Need to walk about now, owner
Won't you get off the phone, get off the phone
Now could you hurry please now, please hurry
Won't you throw me, throw me, throw me, throw me a bone

Cause I'm a beagle
Name is Rover
Scratch my belly
I will roll over
Throw the frizbee, watch me run

I'm a barker
And I slobber
Save you from night robbers
I chase my tail because it's fun

I'm the cutest thing that you ever did see
Won't chew on your slippers if you scratch my belly
Scratch the belly, scratch the belly, scratch the belly all the time
If my leg shakes then I'm having a good time

Cause I'm a beagle
Name is Rover
Scratch my belly
I will roll over
Throw the frizbee, watch me run

I'm a barker
And I slobber
But I'm scared of Thunder
Don't move my food until I'm done

Need to be walkin' about now
Won't you get off the phone, get off the phone
Now could you hurry please, hurry now, hurry owner
Won't you throw me a bone

(At this point the four-line phrase that begins with "I'm the cutest thing..." simply repeats itself as the song fades out. The lyrics are the same and you don't hear the whole phrase because the song ends.)
Quick cat joke so all you cat owners don't feel left out. A cat get's taken to be de-clawed and fixed in the same Vet visit. When he gets home, the cat looks at his paws and thinks "Hey, no claws? Then how am I supposed to scratch my... HEEEEEY."

I'm a snake man myself, but this was really good. All 5's my parody brother.

Nice job

(rated earlier) I thought this one was cute. I don't know why, but my fave line was "I chase my tail because it's fun." :)

I'm probably biased toward parodies about dogs, but I liked this one. Fives, mate.

Excellent. Thank you all of you so much for making this newbie feel not like a newbie at all. The term cute was used to describe it more than I thought it would be, but I guess it really is pretty accurate

2nz - nice work! Some sort of kismet that we both submitted parodies on the same original song on the same day. I've only been posting here a little less than a month. I'm gonna go look at your other stuff now, too.

A belated welcome, 2nz. ("Toons?") And I can totally relate with this parody. I'm scared of thunder, and when my belly gets scratched, my leg shakes.

Thanks Spaff, and yeah there's nothing really deep about my name. Just a lazy way of saying the second part of Looney _____. Actually, I could change my name to Looney 2nz when Chuck gets to making passwords for parody authors.

If you want fours, good dog. But if you want fives, you're barking up the wrong tree.

Love it dude - nice job. Coincidentally, your dog sings and my dog Kimba is a writer on this site.

I try to be supportive of my dog's writing career too, but she's had writer's block for a while now. And I know if she keeps barking at everything that comes in the door, she'll lose her singing voice. And wouldn't that be a bitch
