My Theme Song

Tuesday, October 09, 2007

Last week I was tagged by the Army of Four to post about my theme song. This was a tough I asked my Mom for some help.

First we thought about all the songs with Ruby in the title, like The Rollings Stones, 'Ruby Tuesday'. I didn't like that song (Mick Jagger is kinda scawie to me), but it does make me think of hamburgers which is good. Than it was the Roisin Murphy song 'Ruby Blue'...which incidentally is what I was named after. Well, the song is catchy and you can totally dance to it, but the words aren't anything like me. So we thought about the new Ruby song my friend Marvin told me about by the Kaiser Chiefs. Again catchy...but I don't know. Maybe my theme song doesn't need to have Ruby in the title. So we thought some more...

Than Mom came up with this...

(inspired by Maneater)
Music by Darryl Hall and John Oats
Words by Mom

Ruby snacks day and night
But stays very lean and tight
All she'll do is chew, she's done it all before
Watching and waiting
She's sitting with you but her eyes are on the bully
So many have come to see
All her tricks that are very funny
Ruby is wild, a BT tamed by the shaking of a bag
Snackies only matter
If your looking for licks you'll get lots when shes done

Oh here she comes
Watch out bones she'll chew you up
Oh here she comes
She's a Snackeater
Oh here she comes
Watch out bones she'll chew you up
Oh here she comes
She's a Snackeater

Well, what do you think? I think Mom should stick to her day job otherwise she'll be like that bumble bee guy and make it on this list. I mean who still listens to those old guys anymore...that song was like from a million years ago. Hey, but I do love me my snackies...

I thought this was a hard tag, but I'm still going to tag some pups...let see, Joey, I'm gonna tag you for the first time! Woot! And my dear Miss Asta Up Over, my Stanny, Butchy & Snickers, Fig, Tadpole and my new friend Ralph. Sing it to me pups, sing it to me!!!

Stanley said... 12:24 AM

Ruby Bug!

It's actually kind of scarey, but my girl is just like your mama. She makes up new words to songs all the time! (Sometimes she doesn't even know she's making the words up and singing it wrong)!

However, the song is a great fit for you, and Hall & Oats will NeVEr go out of style.

BTW, my girl still listens to the bumble bee guy too. These hoomans are a little pathetic.

Thanks for the tag, sweet thing. I'll get ON it! (I'm kind of behind on things).

Goober love,
Your Stanny

Oh my dog, Ruby, that song is great! I totally think that your mom could make a living as a song writer. :) I really understand the part about "snackies only matter." It's how I feel too. The song suits you!!
Love Clover xo

oh your Mum is a poet and she does not know it! Ruby, Ruby, Ruby!

I am sorry but cos my Ma is English, we still have to go with the Kaiser Chiefs' song......."Ruby Ruby Ruby!" as being the best one.

I think their song is just you, modern, go getting but hey, I have written a song for you, so don't forget, you are the "pilot of the Dog Waves" Ruby Air.

Here is my wee song for you, and apologies to Joan Armatrading who sang it originally.....and Charlie Dore who wrote the orignal words....

"Ruby - Pilot of the Airwaves,
Here is my request.....
You don't have to fly it
But I hope you'll do your best,
I've been looking at your Blog
On the internet,
and Ruby you seem like a friend to me!

Pick me up in Scotland and take me to Iowa or wherever is your choice
I don't mind, I'll just be happy to hear your voice!

Saying this is for the girl
Ruby, Ruby, is her name,
Yes, she needs a dedication just the same.

Late at night here in Scotland I am listening like a Dog
I don't waste my time chasing sheep,
Hooomans say I look weary
But that's just the blogs and the dog company I keep,
oooooh you make the night time race
oooooooh I long to see your Ruby Face
You're sounding good (sounding good)
Sounding so darn Ruby Good To Me!!"

Nothing like a good song lyric plagiarised! Love you lots Ruby Ruby Ruby!

Your Pal in Scotland, Marvin xxxxxxx

Thanks for the fun times in your Ruby Airplane! Yay!
