The most adorable song

Thursday, February 15th, 2007

I first heard this song several months ago and I’d been meaning to get the album since then. I finally got it today and I can’t stop playing this song! It’s “Your Adorable Beast” by Bobby Bare Jr. You don’t even need to be a dog owner or a dog lover to adore this song.

I look cute at the end of your leash –
Your adorable beast
As I salivate on your shoes

Obedient and true –
Loyal through and through
A fuzzy reflection of you

If you are wounded, I will lick it
If you feed me, I won’t forget it
If I mess up, just rub my nose in it

You let me out to sniff around
Do my business and stretch out
And I always come running when you call

I look cute at the end of your leash –
your adorable beast
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

I was lost when you found me –
Half crazy and mangy
You cleaned me up and I’m here for good

But if I run away, will you miss me
Search through the streets for me
Because I will be looking for you

I look cute at the end of your leash –
your adorable beast
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

And if I growl, well I don’t mean it
And if I bark, just give me a kick
And when I whine, pay me no mind, cuz I’m just missing you

I’ll chase your enemies away
Lick your momma on the face
I’ll only wag my tail when I’m with you

I’ll follow you anywhere around to every part of town
Show me off like a new tattoo

I look cute at the end of your leash –
your adorable beast
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

Good Things

Friday, April 28th, 2006

When we go through rough times we have a tendency to search various avenues for signs of meaning, truth and inspiration. Historically, I have turned to music and books for such guidance, and lately I am identifying with Canadian singer/songwriter Kathleen Edwards, especially with a line from her song “Good Things”: There are some things that I believe/Like if you’ve got nothing you’ve still got your family

Kathleen sings the truth here. I don’t know how I’d have been able to survive the last six months without my family.
