"I Retrieve"

Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

I retrieve a wooden stick
My master throws,
Beneath my nose..
I retrieve it everytime,
That's how we play..
A hundred feet,
Or miles away..
I retrieve, I retrieve

I retrieve it in a storm,
The hottest day,
Or darkest night..
I retrieve,
Because I'm trained
To just obey..
With teeth, I bite..

Even if my boss would toss
A frozen hog,
Sequoia branch,
A barrel of Grog,
I'm Super Dog,
(So) I'd retrieve...

I'd be pissed off, but I'd retrieve...

Great concept, and funny lines, but having a really hard time singing this to TOS. A good source for Laine and others, that you might have used too, is

Not concerned about the line breaks being different, but word for word, it looks like most of TOS lines #5 and 6 are missing completely. .... wouldn't care about final echo verse being short or missing, since web OS and the many versions can vary. Easy 5 for funny, but will hold off on vote until either the confused pea-brain can be set straight on the issue in first verse, or perhaps a re-write if indicated. Great idea!

That's right, blame it all on me... see if I retrieve any more sticks for you! "Man's best friend", ha! ... more like "man's best scapegoat". It's a dog's life... well, you know what we dogs say, "If you can't eat it or hump it, p*ss on it!" :) :) :)
