Thursday Theme Song: Walkin' my...

© Photo by Maria Davies

Gee but it’s great never stayin’ out late
Walking my Lindy back home
Arm in arm over meadow and farm
Walking my Lindy back home.
I go along trying to think of a song,
While Lindy hopes to find a bone
Bluejays go by and they give us the eye
Walking my Lindy back home.
We stop for a breath and she rolls on her back
So I can rub her on her chest
I give her a pet, and that’s when I get
Her golden hairs all over my vest.
After I try to brush them away
She is all covered in leaves
I brush her then we continue again
Walking my Lindy back home!

Great fun, Kay! I'm sure Lindy would approve - and now I'll be singing that song all night:-)

Hi Kay,
Nice song. No, I didn't mind your teasing. I must say I don't think I would survive one of your winters. Ours is just right for me!

Jo said...

Oh what a lovely song about walking darling Lindy. (((hugs))) Jo

OMG I'm so glad that you put the link for the YouTube. I hadn't heard this and love this song and that photo to go with it is just magnificent. Now every day when I walk Nalu I'm going to be thinking of this. Well done.

@ Thom
I'm glad you like the song. I love Nat King Cole's voice, but I really did wonder if the song might be too old for some people to recognize, then I thought, "What's not to like about Nat King Cole?"

PS : Kay did you know Luna made a beautiful collaged card for Lindy, She will love it. It' s so beautiful

What a lovely song for Lindy. I didn't remember it until I played the video, hearing Nat King Cole's voice brought it all back.

Great post Kay, That Lindy is one lucky dog to have such fine parents!

Kay what a great rendition of this song for your special girl.
Tell Lindy and her walker we thank them for their participation

Lovely dog and a great song too.

Lindy is one very lucky dog, I can see that! :)

I think you call verse that "artistic license" Kay. But it's good fun and gave me a smile tonight. I paid a visit to Lynette's blog and saw the gull chicks. So glad you enjoyed them and as I explained to Lynette they aren't everyone's cup of tea over here (me excluded of course).

Lynette Killam said...

I love this, did a great job reworking those lyrics! Of course, I'm singing along with it now, and probably will be all evening. You know what it's like when you get a song stuck in your head...LOL!

we had walking dogs when we were young, these dogs never needed to be walked.

Mara said...

I think that very last line was a bit unfair on Lindy: after all, she seems to be the main inspiration of the song! Then again, if it had been up to her, it would probably only have contained barks and woofs!!
