Thursday Theme Song: Oh, you...

Dick has been singing this song to Lindy for a while now, and I managed to find it on YouTube being played on the instrument I most like to play: a player piano!

This song dates back to 1911 and was played by the orchestra on the Titanic.

I've tweaked the lyrics to meet dog-walking requirements.

Oh, you beautiful dog,
You great big beautiful dog!

Let me put your leash upon you,
I don't want to walk without you.

If you ever pull me,
How my arms would ache.
I want to slow you
But I have no brake.

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa,
Great big beautiful dog!

I am imaging Dick and Lindy out for a walk and Dick serenading the lovely Lindy with this song. Lindy would wag her tail and off they would go.

I love that cute little stool.

You asked about the book I reviewed today. That one made me laugh more than anything else. It's a great story about her grandmothers.

The gret big beautiful dog doesn't look very interested in going for a walk.

Now you've done it; how am I supposed to get that tune out of my head?

I cant BELIEVE that isnt my Jasmine in the photos. Their faces and body shapes are EXACTLY the same. I love the song your husband sings to Lindy - I always feel like I'm walking a walrus when I take Jas out:)

Leslie said...

They DO know how to sleep in comfort, don't they? I love the photos of Lindy sleeping peacefully, head on pillow (and on her human's arm.) My dog does the same thing.
