What song for your dog/cat?

Just had a funny little thought.

If you could dedicate a song to your pet, what would it be?

Personally, I would dedicate "Top of the World" by Carpenters to my late dog Shani.

Here are the lyrics:

Top of the World

Such a feeling's coming over me
There is wonder in most everything I see
Not a cloud in the sky
Got the sun in my eyes
And I won't be surprised if it's a dream

Everything I want the world to be
Is now coming true especially for me
And the reason is clear
It's because you are here
You're the nearest thing to heaven that I've seen

(chorus)
I'm on the top of the world
Looking down on creation
And the only explanation I can find
Is the love that I've found
Ever since you've been around
Your love's put me at the top of the world

Something in the wind has learned my name
And it's telling me that things are not the same
In the leaves on the trees and the touch of the breeze
There's a pleasing sense of happiness for me
There is only one wish on my mind
When this day is through I hope that I will find
That tomorrow will be just the same for you and me
All I need will be mine if you are here

(repeat chorus)


I feel a little silly putting a love song there, but hey, if there's one thing dogs give, it's love! :lovestruck: :cloud9:

I have always thought about this song.
whenever I see those Humane Society Ad's on TV I think this would be the perfect song to play!!

Bryan Adams (Everything I Do) I Do It for You Lyrics
Look into my eyes - you will see
What you mean to me
Search your heart - search your soul
And when you find me there you'll search no more

Don't tell me it's not worth tryin' for
You can't tell me it's not worth dyin' for
You know it's true
Everything I do - I do it for you

Look into your heart - you will find
There's nothin' there to hide
Take me as I am - take my life
I would give it all - I would sacrifice

Don't tell me it's not worth fightin' for
I can't help it - there's nothin' I want more
Ya know it's true
Everything I do - I do it for you

There's no love - like your love
And no other - could give more love
There's nowhere - unless you're there
All the time - all the way

Oh - you can't tell me it's not worth tryin' for
I can't help it - there's nothin' I want more
I would fight for you - I'd lie for you
Walk the wire for you - ya I'd die for you

Ya know it's true
Everything I do - I do it for you

A beautiful song, and a beautiful legend!

I really like that the animals get to judge. If you have encountered many cats, your chances of entering heaven may be slim... They do tend to hold grudges, more so than dogs.

that "gotta go! gotta go! gotta go!" jingle for the bladder control commercial.

or the Pepto commercial "heart burn, nausea, indigestion, upset stomach, diarrhea!"

hahaha!!

seriously- Red Hot Chili Peppers- Road Trippin



Road trippin' with my two favorite allies
Fully loaded we got snacks and supplies
It's time to leave this town
It's time to steal away
Let's go get lost
Anywhere in the U.S.A.

Chorus:
Let's go get lost
Let's go get lost
Blue you sit so pretty
West of the one
Sparkles light with yellow icing
Just a mirror for the sun
Just a mirror for the sun
Just a mirror for the sun

These Smiling eyes are just a mirror for

So much as come before those battles lost and won
This life is shining more forever in the sun
Now let us check our heads
And let us check the surf
Staying high and dry's
More trouble than it's worth
In the sun

Just a mirror for the sun
Just a mirror for the sun

These Smiling eyes are just a mirror for

In Big Sur we take some time to linger on
We three hunky dories got our snakefinger on
Now let us drink the stars
It's time to steal away
Let's go get lost
Right here in the U.S.A

Chorus
Let's go get lost
Let's go get lost
Blue you sit so pretty
West of the one
Sparkles light with yellow icing
Just a mirror for the sun
Just a mirror for the sun
Just a mirror for the sun
These smiling eyes are just a mirror for
These smiling eyes are just a mirror for
Your smiling eyes are just a mirror for

You know the mini-wheats commercial? The one that's like mini-wheats wheats wheats da da da etc. Well I am all about the Mis-o-ree ree ree you are my girl and you are so sweet etc. For Sadie, it's usually Sadie Sadie Married Lady etc. I also like Island in the Sun by Weezer = Lyrics =

Hip hip
Hip hip
Hip hip
Hip hip

When you're on a holiday
You can't find the words to say
All the things that come to you
And I wanna feel it too

On an island in the sun
We'll be playing and having fun
And it makes me feel so fine
I can't control my brain

Hip hip
Hip hip

When you're on a golden sea
You don't need no memory
Just a place to call your own
As we drift into the zone

On an island in the sun
We'll be playing and having fun
And it makes me feel so fine
I can't control my brain

We'll run away together
We'll spend some time forever
We'll never feel bad anymore

Hip hip
Hip hip
Hip hip

On an island in the sun
We'll be playing and having fun
And it makes me feel so fine
I can't control my brain

We'll run away together
We'll spend some time forever
We'll never feel bad anymore

Hip hip

We'll never feel bad anymore
No no
We'll never feel bad anymore
No no
No no
No no

I had a bunny when I was younger that I could cradle and put to sleep by singing Silent Night....

For the kitties there are a couple I like... and sing to them, Fagan even sings along sometimes (or begs me to stop, I'm not sure which!:rolleyes: )

The Very Thought Of You
The very thought of you and I forget to do
The little ordinary things that everyone ought to do
I'm living in a kind of daydream
I'm happy as a king
And foolish though it may seem
To me that's everything

The mere idea of you, the longing here for you
You'll never know how slow the moments go till I'm near to you
I see your face in every flower
Your eyes in stars above
It's just the thought of you
The very thought of you, my love

And for my sleepy kitties....

Dream A Little Dream (Also a great 2 Coreys movie)
Stars shining bright above you
Night breezes seem to whisper "i love you"
Birds singiní in the sycamore trees
Dream a little dream of me

Say nighty-night and kiss me
Just hold me tight and tell me youíll miss me
While Iím alone and blue as can be
Dream a little dream of me

Stars fading but I linger on dear
Still craving your kiss
Iím longiní to linger till dawn dear
Just saying this

Sweet dreams till sunbeams find you
Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you
But in your dreams whatever they be
Dream a little dream of me

If you clicked on the adoption page, you could hear "Take a chance on me" by Abba
And on the success stories (dogs that had been adopted) it was "I will survive" by Gloria Gayner (spelling? )

Willow's is Break My Stride by Matthew Wilder... at least the corus is.

Ain't nothing gonna break my stride
Nobody gonna slow me down, oh no
I got to keep on moving
Ain't nothing gonna break my stride
I'm running in a one touch ground, oh no
I got to keep on moving

The singing cat with the dancing dot? Meow-meow-meow-meow...

We torment the cat with that all the time!

My previous cat was a big fan of Led Zepplin ... she would go sit on the speakers whenever I played it.
