Theme Song Tag!

Ha roo, pups! It's me - Stormy! Our friend Bama tagged us in a cool, new game of tag. We are supposed to tell our theme song! As Bama put it, "What is your song? If you don't already have one, try to think of one that fits your name or personality, or if possible, BOTH!" Oh, cool! Thanks for the tag!

Mom has little songs that she sings for each of us. Fortunately, they are very SHORT (ha roo roo roo). Here are each of ours!

Dave's theme song is sung to the tune of the old TV show Davy Crockett. Does anyone remember that one? It probably was before your time. Fortunately, it was before Mom's time, too, and all she can remember from reruns is one of two lines. What she sings is,

"Davy! Davy Doggie! King of the Wild Frontier!"

That's it. And she sings that over and over again. Sigh. For the words to the original song, you can check out this link. We didn't know them. Dave likes the part about answering his country's call and "seein' his duty clear. (Serving his country well)." Pretty cool song!

Davy Doggie

For Amber, it's based on her nickname of Ram-a-lamb. Did you see the comment our dear friend Marvin left on that post? He posted a link to a great rendition of Rama Lama Ding Dong. Am's song goes like that, only Mom sings,

"Oh oh oh oh
I got a girl named Ram a Lamb a Lamb a Lamb a Ding Dong
She's everything to me
Ram a Lamb a Lamb a Lamb a Ding Dong
I'll never set her free For she's mine, all mine!"

Ram a Lamb a Lamb a Lamb a Ding Dong

Zim gets the tune from the theme to Spiderman.

"Zimmie-man, Zimmie-man
Friendly neighborhood Zimmie-man
Wealth and fame He's ingnored
Action is his reward.
Lookout! Here comes the Zimmie-man!"

His is pretty fun, isn't it?

Zimmie-man, incognito

As for me, Stormy, I've got the theme song to the old TV show Top Cat. (Can you tell Mom only watched quality TV as a biped puppy?) That link also has the words to the theme song. My version goes:

Ohhhhhhhhhhhh STORM-CAT!
The indisputable leader of the gang.
--- insert "blah blah blah" here, as Mom can't remember the whole thing---
She's the most tip top,
Storm-Cat!
Yes she's a chief, she's a king
But above everything,
She's the most tip top,
Storm-Cat.
Storm-Cat!

Me ... Storm-Cat! (The indisputable leader of the gang!)

What a great tag game! We really had fun with this; thanks, Bama and pack-mates!

We're going to tag Sitka & Tia, Ruby, Steve, Kat & Wilbur, and Tasha & Eva! Have fun, everypup!

Tail wags,
Storm

  3. oh Stormy, I loved this post, (well mainly cos I love music and words etc!) and so does Jeannie!

    She was laughing so much at the Davy Crockett song, she remembers bits of it from her youth (dog, she is some old person you know!)

    And the rama lama ding dong, well what a laugh!

    We are so sorry we know we are behind in our tag games, we owe you a reply for one and our friend in England, dear Blue, has asked us to play too. We will try to catch up this week, promise!

    If Dave wants to check out my blog today, we have some bagpipe music on which may please him (or not!).....my new Pal Frasier said his Mama liked this song, and I thought it went with my Scottish views and themes.

    Well, apart from the fact Paul McCartney is not Scottish........!

    love and happy singing licks, Marvin xxxxxx

  5. Hey TC! ::big husky smile::

    The Human Assistant only remembers that much of the Davy Crockett song too. Now he's playing Led Zeppelin III to get it out of his head.

    We come from the land of the ice and snow,
    From the midnight sun where the hot springs blow....
