"(Was My) Rover Killed?"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

they put him to sleep
with sodium and medications
the injuries too deep
all those little machinations

I let him out at night
a car ran over both his shoulders
threw him off the road
crashed into those roadside boulders

on the next day, it appears
he was uptight no heartbeat, from the dear..
life appeared to fade away

underneath the car
as it was wildly swerving
he didn't get too far
innocent, and not deserving

at least he's all right
in death there's little consternation
nullified his life
was my rover killed???

day after day, it appeared
right after flight. he'd pee and re appear,
once to me, then run away..
then he'd come back again

they put him to sleep
with sodium and medications
the injuries too deep
all those little machinations

I let him out at night
a car ran over both his shoulders
threw him off the road
crashed into those roadside boulders


day after day, it appeared
right after flight. he'd pee and re appear,
once to me, then run away..
he'd come back now.. gone away....
