The Lyrics


What's the worse thing anyone can do to a dog? Tie it up outside and ignore it and only see it to feed and water. Dogs are very social animals and need attention. I have three border collies and they have never been tied up and left alone. All three are very well adjusted. I have neighbors that have dogs tied and neglected. The more they bark the more they are ignored. They are man's best friend if they are given that chance to be. Although the parody has humor there is a lesson in it. Be kind to your pets, please.

Extra verses were added since this OS is so short.

Please unleash me, hey hello!
Fi Fi's in heat and I must score,
To keep me tied up is a sin,
So unleash me, let me out of this pen.

There's a new cat next door here,
And he always comes so near,
He knows how far my rope unfolds,
So unleash me, I swear I'll bite him so.

Please unleash me, 'cause I see,
The postman coming to tease me.
He is no friend and he ain't kin,
Unleash me, I'll bite him on the shin.

Please unleash me, gotta go!
My friends are loose in packs of four,
There's Butch and Spot and Rin Tin Tin,
Unleash me, so I can romp again.

Please unleash me from this place,
I hear cars that I must chase.
On fire plugs my scent's gone cold,
Unleash me, or snarling, I will show.

When you got me from the pound,
A new fam'ly I have found.
You kept me inside from the cold,
You did not teach me how to go.

I was once warm, safe and snug,
Until I crapped on your new rug.
You've tied a leash around a tree,
At least though I have a place to pee.

Last time loose I found a skunk,
I was so sure it was a cat.
He sprayed me good with his urine,
Unleash me, I won't go near again.

Please unleash me set me free,
To be tied up is such a bore.
That bush tailed rodent nut did hurl,
Unleash me and let me chase that squirrel.

Good work, Guy! Your writings always give me a new leash on life. ;D

Very a-pup-riate for the animal abuse angle..That's why I only have my stuffed, (not literally) dog, Sniffy...good write, Guy

I was worried you were going to "unleash" something else, like Sarah Palin or something even worse. Instead, you get a 35. That's a 5 in dog points.

Yeah, lets get a pet and lock it up.

I know my dog would approve! Of course, in this weather, she's not that keen on going outside at all... Nice job!

Sir, I saw "JerryDorsey" at the old CircleStar theatre in RedwoodCity. He puts on a fine show; his voice is heavenly, but he is not as dark, as he is depicted on his album photos . . .

Canine kismet? I'm about to post a somewhat similar parody.

Nice. I have no respect for anyone who owns a pet and pays no attention to them. Once knew a family that kept their dog chained up all the time. Never played with him. Never gave him anything but food. It's more than sad, it's a crime to me. Good work, Guy.

Farce - never stuff your dogs - it makes them lazy and fat. I like your dog's name. Thanks for commenting.

MP - Naw - There are enough wackos in office that are off of their leash and I'm sure you know who I have in mind.

Ann - OK - I'll get me a pet politician like Holder and lock him up.

Mark - Thanks - and the write wasn't too ruff.

Lady of the wee dog biskets. So his dark is then not worse than his light? I had a dogwood tree once but I had to put it down because it lost its bark. Thanks!

JAB - I await it in great anticipation. Thanks.

I approve of your amusing n' fives-worthy doggerel!

For some reason this looked familiar but according to the above comments I haven't seen it yet. Still this one was pretty fun.

ABC (UV)- Never heard the original song before...and I'm more of a cat person. I really do like the message behind this song though!

(ABC) Loved this one...

(ABC) I was glad this wasn't about BDSM lifestyles...

TOS is beautiful but boring. . .I agree with the message even if it did get a bit boring. . .Agri, that would have been hilarious

(ABC5) By GOD, that OS is boring. I guess it has to be, his name took all his interesting points. That said, great parody here, just wish it was applied to a less slow-as-a-stoned-snail OS. 555!
