Can't Pee Like A Puppy

My long time friend and runnin' mate A.J. Osborne (better known in Hollywood as Donna King) had always told me "you can't pee like a puppy". I wondered about that for years, and always kept it in the back of my mind, until one day at Granny's me and our ornery little girl cat, Bubba Loo were walking out to the burning barrel, skilsaw in my hand, cord following, ready to start cutting a mountain of old shakes in half. (*see photo page: 2004 roof fire) The words came from my mouth "Bubba, we're gonna make a little bit of noise". She says OK. Still walking together "Bubba, we're gonna make a little Rock N Roll". She says prroww? We both stopped dead in our tracks, turned around and ran back into the garage, scrambling for pen and paper, and wrote it. (she knew all about puppies and pee). I miss you Bubba. This is for you.
We gonna make a little bit a noise
We gonna make a little Rock N Roll
Separate the men from the boys
So all you little dogs better go home

Can't pee like a puppy and keep on hangin' around with the big dogs
You look like a monkey tryin' to be like King Kong
Well you can't pee like a puppy keep on hangin' around with the big dogs
You look like a monkey tryin' to beat up King Kong

We gonna do whatever we choose
And like the drivers on a locomo
Make a little rythym and blues
Get on the right track headed on home to you

You can't pee like a puppy and keep on hangin' around with the big dogs
You look like a monkey tryin' to beat up King Kong
Well you can't pee like a puppy and keep on hangin' around with the big dogs
You look like a monkey tryin' to beat up King Kong aoww!

(guitar solo)

It's gonna take a little bit of pain
If you wanna make some Rock N Roll
Remember that it's worth the gain
And all the bad girls wishin' they could take you home but

You cant' pee like a puppy and keep on hangin' around with the big dogs
You look like a monkey tryin' to be like King Kong
Well you can't pee like a puppy and keep on hangin' around with the big dogs
You look like a monkey tryin' to be like King Kong
You gonna look like a monkey tryin' to beat up King Kong
You gonna look like a monkey tryin' to beat up King Kong aoowww!
