  • 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.

  • ♫ (Dog panting noise) Heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh. ♫

  • ♫ I'm just a'walking my dog, singing my song, strolling along. ♫

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

  • My life was lonely and blue. ♫

  • Yeah, I was sad as a sailor, ♫

  • ♫ I was an angry 'un too. ♫

  • Then there was you -- appeared when I was entangled with youth and fear, ♫

  • and nerves jingle jangled, vermouth and beer were getting me mangled up. ♫

  • But then I looked in your eyes

  • and I was no more a failure. ♫

  • You looked so wacky and wise. ♫

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

  • catching some sun. We can't go wrong." ♫

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

  • ♫ 'Cause I don't care about your hating and your doubt, ♫

  • and I don't care what the politicians spout. ♫

  • If you need a companion, why, just go out to the pound, ♫

  • and find yourself a hound, and make that doggie proud, ♫

  • ♫ 'cause that's what it's all about. ♫

  • ♫ (Dog panting noise) Heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh. ♫

  • My life was tragic and sad. ♫

  • ♫ I was the archetypal loser. ♫

  • ♫ I was a pageant gone bad. ♫

  • And then there was you -- on time, and wagging your tail

  • in the cutest mime that you was in jail. ♫

  • ♫ I said, "Woof, be mine!" and you gave a wail and then

  • ♫ I was no longer alone. ♫

  • And I was no more a boozer. ♫

  • We'll make the happiest home. ♫

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

  • singing my song, strolling along." ♫

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

  • ♫ 'cause I don't care about your hating and your doubt, ♫

  • and I don't care what the politicians spout. ♫

  • If you need a companion, why, just go out to the pound, ♫

  • and find yourself a hound, and make that doggie proud, ♫

  • ♫ 'cause that's what it's all about, ♫

  • that's what it's all about, ♫

  • that's what it's all abou-BOW-WOW-WOW-WOW

  • that's what it's all about. ♫

  • ♫ (Dog panting noise) Heh, heh, heh, heh, heh. ♫

  • Good dog!

  • Thank you.

I'd like to dedicate this next song to Carmelo,
