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 http://www.cowboylyrics.com/lyrics/laine-frankie/i-believe-12555.html

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!" :) :) :)
