My Treat Ball starring Max

My Jack Russell Terrier, Max, uploaded a video made as an ode to his treat ball. He's not the best singer (although back in the day he was considered the Manilow of the dog park) but he's sincere. Max's lyrics are reproduced below.



The tune is Red Rubber Ball as performed by The Seekers and The Cyrkle. It was written by Paul Simon (of Simon and Garfunkel) and Bruce Woodley (of The Seekers). Here is what Max was singing.

Early in my years I found out that I
Get so bored so easily - cloth chews I can't abide
Nothing comes out, no big payoff, that's a maudlin time
Falling treats that satisfy - that's a rockin' climb!

R-uuff, my life is oh so right
Yeah, the munchies coming down
The morning sun is shinin' all on my treat ball

Boy, what a life all I do is eat
And all my toys have food in them - what a fuckin' treat
Yea you know it's not the only ball that makes me gay
But throw that treat ball on the floor - I'm always gonna play

Woof, my life is oh so right
Yeah, the munchies coming down
The morning sun is shinin' all on my treat ball

All my pals in grime just grunt and look and stare
Roll the ball, some food comes out - am I missing something here?
Nothing beats the lasting taste and feelin' in my tum
Of nosing my treat ball round the floor; it's more than just a crumb

Yow, my life is oh so right
Yeah, the munchies coming down
The morning sun is shinin' all on my treat ball

Keep your day job and hopefully it doesn't involve any singing!
Your cousin Eric

I remember when you sang and danced on the pool table in Massapequa. Or was that me. Well, I know it was one of us.

And that's Max singing - not me, cuz.
