Jumping up and down the floor My head is an animal And once there was an animal It had a son that mowed the lawn The son was an OK guy They had a pet dragonfly The dragonfly it ran away But it came back with a story to say
Her dirty paws and furry coat She ran down the forest slope The forest of talking trees They used to sing about the birds and the bees The bees had declared a war The sky wasn't big enough for them all The birds, they got help from below From dirty paws and the creatures of snow
So for a while things were cold They were scared down in their holes The forest that once was green Was colored black by those killing machines But she and her furry friends Took down the queen bee and her men And that's how the story goes The story of the beast with those four dirty paws

Shawn from OsoyoosThe first time I heard this song I was driving 1/2 way across Canada in a moving van and it was on an Indie station in the middle of nowhere. Earlier that day before the drive I had to put my 16 year old Blue Heeler down and spent a lot of the drive crying about it. His dirty paw prints were still on my shirt. I heard the song and lost my s--t. That was several years ago but sometimes I play this song out of nostalgia to bring me back to that time and the years before that to remember and honour the best dog that ever lived.
