#SLS ~ 11/29/20

Jim prompts us with bird/dog/cat/fish/pet. I almost went with “How Much is That Doggy in the Window” which had all the prompts but pet. As a kid, I have fond memories of that song singing it with my brothers. But I had time on my hands and did some generic searching finally landing on the Beatles’ “Hey Bulldog”. Writer(s): Lennon, John Winston and Mccartney, Paul James. For more details, check out the wiki. Now onto the tune …

Standing in the rain
Doing it again
Some kind of happiness is measured out in miles
What makes you think you’re something special when you smile?

No one understands
Jack knife
In your sweaty hands
Some kind of innocence is measured out in years
You don’t know what it’s like to listen to your fears

You can talk to me
You can talk to me
You can talk to me, if you’re lonely you can talk to me

Yeah hey, oh!
Ho, ho!
Ho, ho, ho, ho!
Ho, ho!

Big man (Yeah)
Walking in the park
Frightened of the dark
Some kind of solitude is measured out in you
You think you know me but you haven’t got a clue

You can talk to me
You can talk to me
You can talk to me, if you’re lonely you can talk to me

Wahoo woof! Woof!

Hey bulldog! Hey bulldog!
Hey bulldog! Hey bulldog!

[Hey man, what’s that noise?


What d’you say?

I said woof!

D’you know anymore?

Wooaah ha ha ha!

You’ve got it, that’s great! That’s right! That’s it, man, hoo!

Give it to me, man, hurry! I’ve got ten children, ho!

Ah ho! Ha ha ha ha ha ha!

Quiet boy, quiet!


Hey bulldog!
Hey bulldog!

  1. Jilly Bean, what an absolutely great choice. This is a little known song although it was in the Yellow Submarine film and album. I think it may have been omitted from the American version of the LP.
    They certainly enjoyed trying this one out, and I enjoyed listening to it. Thank you!

    1. I’m glad you picked it. I was hoping someone would. Maybe do a part two today and post the cat songs. I saw a lot of good cat songs as well.
