Oh, I Wanna Be A Dog!

You've probably heard many of Barry Polisar's songs and stories already. One of the songs that you may have heard is All I Want is You  which was featured in the opening credits of the film Juno and on the Grammy Award-winning Juno Soundtrack.

Over the course of 35 years Barry Polisar established a national reputation for his original and satirical songs about real kids and their concerns. Barry is well-loved for relating to children in a variety of songs such as "I Don't Wanna Go To School" and "Don't Put Your Finger up Your Nose" but my personal favorite is "I Wanna Be a Dog", of course!

As you follow along with the lyrics please note that besides our very own Daisy, the dogs pictured(except the poodle)are our clients and we love that they enjoyed helping make this post pawsible!
                                               Oh, I wanna be a dog        

                                                I wanna wag my tail

                                                             Chase cars

                                    and  knock over garbage cans

                            Bite the lady who brings the mail!

                                                   Oh I wanna be a dog


                                                   I wanna dig big holes

                                    I wanna sniff French Poodles

                                                   and basset hounds

                                     and look for telephone poles.

                                     Oh, I wanna have dog breath

                                      I wanna learn how to growl

                                          Scratch fleas and ticks

                                               and run after sticks


                                 The moon's gonna make me howl.

                                              Oh, I wanna be a dog

                                                I wanna big wet nose

                                       I wanna run in the street

                                                get mud on my feet

                                      and jump onto your clothes.

                                              Oh, I wanna be a dog

                                                   I wanna lie around

Being human these days is getting too crazy

                                        I just wanna be a hound.

  14. That is so wonderful. When I was teaching the littlies I would have used it when we were dealing with the letter "h". That chorus is just made for enjoying the letter H!

    And I agree, having dogs around makes us realise humans have lost the plot.

  15. Forgot to say, I loved the muddy picture.
