Parody Written by:

John A. Barry

The Lyrics

Sheepdog has mange,
Check out his strange fur.
Wasted and buggy,
Clenching his bone.

Skinny and tick-bled,
Looks like he's haunted.
Sheep even bleat: "Put him dow-ow-own!"

When there's mange,
Face is contorted in pain,
When there's mange.
Ovines view him with disdain.
When there's mange
When there's mange
When there's mange

Sheepdog's deranged,
Acts even stranger.
Face looking ugly,
Drenching in foam.
Tics rustle his head,
Rictus* undaunted,
Feet are uneven, he falls down.

This ain't mange!
Rabies has rotted his brain--
Therefore, strange.
I run to the rifle range
For 12-gauge,
For 12-gauge,
For 12-gauge.


*gaping grin or grimace

Rick: I've always wondered, and the Oliver Stone movie didn't clear this up: What did Morrison do during those llllllllongggg solos? He didn't play an instrument, so what did he do? Or were the solos not a tribute to the Fifties jazz stars Manzarek, Krieger and Densmore liked so much but an excuse for Morrison to sneak backstage with a chick?

Nice parody. Yeah, nature's a mother, and father time can be a jerk too, especially animals that have 7 years worth of age in one of ours.

Mostly, he just staggered around the stage but, when he sang, he drew you in like a magnet.
