The Lyrics

Did you know your pet thinks they have their own personal celebrity in you? How "bout that? So why don't you show your pet off this Thanksgiving? It's always an "in" thing to do.
Some say fame can be a Rolex®
That ticks with grief for keeps *
Some say fame can be a Faux-lex
That tocks too brief and cheap **
Some say fame can be a pretext
For non-celebrities
I say fame it is a mindset
And you a timeless piece


It's the Hare that's there for Emmie
Who's tuning out bad weeks
It's the bird that sings for Grammie [Grandma]
Who's chirping fits the beak
It's the cat who loves her Toni
Who plays the purr-fect act
And the dog who begs his Oscar
Who oft times wins a snack

When "the rich" are seen too famous
And their clothes seem way too glam
And you think that fame is shameless
For these turkeys and these hams
Just remember this Thanksgiving
Warm inside your safe abode
Comes a peace brought by a pet's love
Watch your beasts, become en vogue

* Marlon Brando for one
** MC Hammer knows what time it is
