Our Dog is an Awesome Dog

It just came to me the other day, as I was scratching behind Reggie's ears and he was being his usual doggy self. A little goofy, to be sure, but then so is the original. I'm not sure how the music goes, but you can find it anywhere on the web, if you want to sing this one. If you do, I'm worried about you. If you know the music already, then I'm really worried about you. . . .

When he rolls up his bones
He ain't just putting on the schmooz
There's thunder in his footsteps
And cuteness in his schnoz

The Lord wasn't joking
When He made this mix retriever
It wasn't for no reason
That that we found this lab

His two ears are very soft
And so you better be believing that
Our dog is an awesome dog

Our dog is an awesome dog
He runs on earth below
In summer, fall, and snow
Our dog is an awesome dog

Our dog is an awesome dog (Our dog is an awesome dog)
He runs on earth below (he runs)
In summer, fall, and snow (in summer and fall)
Our dog is an awesome dog


Our dog is an awesome dog
Our dog is an awesome dog

In defense of Rich Mullins anyway, he inadvertently helped to turn me Lutheran, as his views on grace were significantly different from the currents of American evangelicalism in which I was running. ;o)

Interesting . . .

Yeah, I'm not defending the sillier lyrics of CCM or anything like that though... in fact I think this guy would have be the first to roll his eyes at his own goofy lyrics, or the way this song took off in CCM-land. I've heard him speak eloquently about how terrible it is that people have been valuing worship for its entertainment value these days, and the "high" or "buzz" it's supposed to produce.
