00:11 I’d like to dedicate this next song to Carmelo, who was put to sleep a couple of days ago, because he got too old. But apparently he was a very nice dog and he always let the cat sleep in the dog bed.

00:28 ♫ (Dog panting noise) Heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh. ♫

00:32 ♫ I'm just a'walking my dog, singing my song, strolling along. ♫

00:38 ♫ Yeah, it's just me and my dog, catching some sun. We can't go wrong. ♫

00:46 ♫ My life was lonely and blue. ♫

00:49 ♫ Yeah, I was sad as a sailor, ♫

00:53 ♫ I was an angry 'un too. ♫

00:56 ♫ Then there was you -- appeared when I was entangled with youth and fear, ♫

01:03 ♫ and nerves jingle jangled, vermouth and beer were getting me mangled up. ♫

01:09 ♫ But then I looked in your eyes ♫

01:12 ♫ and I was no more a failure. ♫

01:15 ♫ You looked so wacky and wise. ♫

01:19 ♫ And I said, "Lord, I'm happy, 'cause I'm just a'walking my dog, ♫

01:24 ♫ catching some sun. We can't go wrong." ♫

01:28 ♫ Yeah, it's just me and my dog, singing our song, strolling along. ♫

01:34 ♫ 'Cause I don't care about your hating and your doubt, ♫

01:37 ♫ and I don't care what the politicians spout. ♫

01:41 ♫ If you need a companion, why, just go out to the pound, ♫

01:44 ♫ and find yourself a hound, and make that doggie proud, ♫

01:47 ♫ 'cause that's what it's all about. ♫

01:54 ♫ (Dog panting noise) Heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh. ♫

01:57 ♫ My life was tragic and sad. ♫

02:01 ♫ I was the archetypal loser. ♫

02:04 ♫ I was a pageant gone bad. ♫

02:08 ♫ And then there was you -- on time, and wagging your tail ♫

02:13 ♫ in the cutest mime that you was in jail. ♫

02:16 ♫ I said, "Woof, be mine!" and you gave a wail and then ♫

02:22 ♫ I was no longer alone. ♫

02:24 ♫ And I was no more a boozer. ♫

02:27 ♫ We'll make the happiest home. ♫

02:30 ♫ And I said, "Lord, I'm happy, 'cause I’m just a'walking my dog, ♫

02:34 ♫ singing my song, strolling along." ♫

02:38 ♫ Yeah, it's just me and my dog, catching some sun. We can't go wrong, ♫

02:46 ♫ 'cause I don't care about your hating and your doubt, ♫

02:48 ♫ and I don’t care what the politicians spout. ♫

02:52 ♫ If you need a companion, why, just go out to the pound, ♫

02:55 ♫ and find yourself a hound, and make that doggie proud, ♫

02:58 ♫ 'cause that's what it's all about, ♫

03:01 ♫ that's what it's all about, ♫

03:04 ♫ that's what it's all abou-BOW-WOW-WOW-WOW ♫

03:08 ♫ that's what it's all about. ♫

03:13 ♫ (Dog panting noise) Heh, heh, heh, heh, heh. ♫

03:15 Good dog!
