The Lyrics

Sad to say but there is probably some poor kid out there that is named after a dog. Maybe not to this extreme, but this is for all the kids who got picked on for having weird names. ;) Usually the parodies just come to me but this one took me a while. It is a labor of love. ENJOY!
Sitting at home
Starting their new life
He called her dear
She adored him
But they were alone
They longed for something
To share their life with
What to do?
They talked for a while
To try and decide their future Woah ohhhh
My mom named me Rover
She wanted a Bassett Hound
Their ideas differed
My dad wanted me
My mom named me Rover
I just know I can't explain
She wanted a dog
My mom named me Rover
It's kinda weird
She wanted a puppy
Dad filled her with beer
Then they made me
She was upset
That he didn't tell her
Nine months later
There I was.
She feeds me Alpo
And sends me outside to go pee woah ohhh
My mom named me Rover
She wanted a Bassett Hound
She says I'm a "good boy"
She likes to scratch me
My mom named me Rover
I just know I can't explain
She wanted a dog
My mom named me Rover
Ohhh Ohhh Ohhh Ohhh
Ohhh Ohhh Ohhh Ohhh
She likes to play fetch
All day at the dog park
With me on all fours
"Go get it boy"
She is a freak
As you can imagine
But she's my mom
Freak or not
My mom named me Rover
To hell with the consequence
She tells me she love me
That's what I believe
My mom named me Rover
She's a freak; I can't explain
My mom named me Rover
I just know, No I can't explain

Thanks! I guess I can be a little warped at times. ;)

I thought this was hilarious! Maybe because I tried (unsuccessfully) to get my parents to name my sister after the dog (Heidi)
