Yet another Tamaskan song!

Post by firleymj » Sun Jun 08, 2014 3:22 pm

During the June 2014 American Rare Breed Association show, there were some moments spent waiting for our dogs to enter the rings. Moments that combine a little tension and a little boredom can create a situation with me, as song parodies come to mind.

Accordingly, I share this take on a 80s pop hit with apologies to "The Bangles"

If you don't know "Walk Like an Egyptian" this may jog your memory

Accordingly, I offer

Run Like A Tamaskan

All the old breeds in the shows
They do the same dance don't you know
If they move too quick
Oh way oh
They're falling down like a domino

All the show judges in the ring
They aren't sure what to do
With Tamaskans
Oh Way Oh
They'll pull your sled and you with a crew

Fancy breeds with their grooming needs say
Ay oh way oh, far a way oh
Run like a Tamaskan!

The pro handlers take their dogs
They spin round then they cross the ring
They've got the moves
Oh way oh
We raise our heads and begin to sing!

All the Artic breeds so sick of heat
The Spitzes and the Samoyeds
When the day is done
Oh way oh
They're pulling like a Tamaskan!

All the kids ask if they're a wolf
Ay oh way oh, far away oh
Run like a Tamaskan!

Single track up the street then stretch your back
Turn so fast you lap the track
Running fast or slow
Oh Way Oh
Turn your wrist going round the track

If you want to pull out all the stops
They're running like real wolf stock
They howl and pull
Oh way oh
Then drag your sleds around the block

All the Malamutes with their kin
The huskies are all Siberian
All the Hedlunds know
Oh way oh
They pull a sled like a Tamaskan!

All the fancy dogs in the shows say
Ay on way oh, get a way oh
Run like a Tamaskan
Run like a Tamaskan!

I think this is hilarious. LOL

bark as if no one can hear you
catch the ball on the fly
lick like there's no end to kissing
sleep on a sofa nearby
jump like the sky is the limit
sit by the fire with friends
stay with the ones who love you
run like the road never ends
