The Lyrics

From The Album "The Self Titled Debut Album"
Flying squirrel, he was taken from his outside world
I don't exactly know what brought him here
Do you think it was the local beer

But now I own me a flying squirrel
He's really smaller than a normal squirrel
He likes to jump around and try to fly
He likes to climb up places that's real high
Then try to hide

His name is Rocky and he lives so loose
No he does not have a friend that's a moose

Some say I'm not all there
Just because I own me a flying squirrel
Cause he was taken from a flying world
He's not exactly like your average pet
But he's so better than a dog or cat, and that's a fact

Flying Squirrel, I tied his fur into a jerry-curl
He climbs to places that are up real high
He spreads his arms but yet he cannot fly
Though still he tries

And when he's flying he's soaring so high
Then he starts falling and smacks his behind

Some say I'm not all there
Just because I own me a flying squirrel
He's really smaller than a normal squirrel
He chewed some wires and he made a nest
In my printer so to get some rest, that little pest

Flying squirrel, he's my flying squirrel
You know I do own me a flying squirrel, my flying squirrel
You know I do own me a flying squirrel, my flying squirrel
You know I do own me a flying squirrel, my flying squirrel

(F) My inlaws had some flying squirrels for awhile. We called to inquire after their welfare, one evening, and they told us they'd dyed one of them green. (We were afraid to ask why.) So, anyway, the Jerry-curl actually doesn't seem so far fetched as it might have, before that... and they sure are cute little critters... and I enjoyed reading this very much. :)

Nice rhyming. I can barely remember the show from my toddler years, so have to rely on the recent CGI movie for familarity.

Thanks for all the comments. Thought you'd like to know though, it's not based on The Rocky & Bullwinkle Show, it's actually based on a flying squirrel we rehabed at home for the winter, which ended up being named Rocky. Funny thing is the last verse is true. The squirrel escaped from its caged and made a little nest in my computer printer. There was a bunch hair and debris and some wires chewed up. I got it fixed but it hasn't been the same since.

(ABC) Cute parody, though I'll have trouble forgiving you for mispelling "jheri curl" ;-)
