Symphony For The Snowplow

This is a TDB News Flash! The snowplow is in our neighborhood! We doggies have a special song for the snowplow. It's sung to the tune of "Flight of the Valkyries" by Wagner in the key of B (for bark.) If you can't remember what that tune sounds like, click on the video below. 

Doggish                                                   Translation
Bark-ity-bark bark                                   I hear the snow plow
Bark-ity-bark-bark                                   Look it's the snowplow
Bark-ity-bark-bark                                   Big noisy snowplow
Bark-ity-BARK!                                      Look here it comes! 

Bark-n-a-bark bark                                               Flinging the road slush
Bark bark a bark bark                                           Off of the street now
Yapity bark bark                                                  Onto the driveway
Barky yap bark!                                                   It weighs a ton! 

Ba-bark-ity bark                                                   Look at it go
Woof bark-ity bark                                               Up on our driveway
Yip bark-ity bark bark!                                          Dad'll be so mad
Bark a bark bark!                                                  Oh what a mess!

Bark yippity bark                                           Now it's backing up
Ba-bark-ity bark                                          We hear it beep
Woof woof and bark bark                              Back 'round the corner
Woof woof woof woof!                                 Turning around 

Bark-ity bark bark                                                We love the snowplow
Bark-ity bark bark                                                It's big and noisy
Bark-ity bark bark                                                Rattle and rumble
Bark bark bar bark!                                              Grumble and boom! 

Bark bar-ity bark bark                            Hooray for the snowplow
Bark-ity bark bark                                  Headed down our street
Woof and a bark bark                           Clearing the snow for
Woof-ity bark                                       Every one! 

Woof bark-ity bark bark                              Hooray for the snowplow
Woof and a bark bark                                  We love the snowplow
Bark-ity bark bark                                       Look it's the snow plow
Woof and a bark!                                        Give him a cheer! 

Yip bark bark bark bark                                 Hey what do I see now
Bark-ity bark bark                                         Here comes the school bus
Bark-ity bark bark                                         Driving down our street
Bark-ity woooooo                                         Free of all snow! 

Now wasn't that great? We love the snowplow!

  6. Our house is on a three corner intersection. The snow plow has to stop, back up and turn around a couple times to clean off both sides of the road and then go around the block. We get this performance whenever it snows a lot!

  7. Arooooo!
    How do you Dooooo!
    Barking your song.
    I howled along...
    And yowled with you!

    OMD, your snowplow is much more fun than mine...we live on a long country road, straight north and I hear it coming with its rumbles and then it whooshes by going north to the county line...then I reckon it beeps like yours, about a mile north from here, and eventually it scrapes its way south..and fills in our driveway...sheesh...always after the peeps just finish clearing out the original mess...

    Loved the new lyrics! Arooooooooo!

  8. Did you hear us singing along with you, Chester and Joey!

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  9. Hilarious! Is mom joining in
    Lily & Edward

  10. That's brilliant. And my Mom is laughing SO hard because when she was teaching pilots to fly these swept wing airplanes she had this little cassette player, and when she'd pull (turn off) an engine RIGHT as they were to take off (which requires them to continue the takeoff, but just powered on one side wheeeeeee!), she'd reach down and hit the button and that song would play. Everyone would laugh so hard and thankfully no one tried to kill her (too often).
