"Shoot The Dog" as written by and George/oakey Michael....
GTI, hot shot
He parks it there, just to piss me off,
Bullyboy, gonna show ya who's tough,
I'm gonna shoot the dog, I'm gonna shoot the dog,

It's party time, everyday
I spent Saturday night on novocaine
Called the pigs, but nobody came
I'm gonna shoot the dog, I'm gonna shoot the dog
....(come on laidies)

CHORUS:
Nine nine nine gettin' jiggy
People did you see that fire in the city?
It's like we're fresh out of democratic,
Gotta get yourself a little something
Semi-automatic yeah....

That's why I'm always gettin' stoned yeah
That's why I'm out there havin' fun again
Good puppy, good puppy
Rolling on over....

Mustapha
Mazeltov
The gaza boys,
All that holy stuff,
I got the feelin' when it all goes off,
They're gonna soot the dog,
They're gonna shoot the dog.

CHORUS:
Nine nine nine gettin' jiggy
People did you see that fire in the city?
It's like we're fresh out of democratic,
Gotta get yourself a little something
Semi-automatic yeah....

That's why I'm always gettin' stoned yeah
That's why I'm out there havin' fun again
Good puppy, good puppy
Rolling on over for the man....

The ayatollah's gettin' bombed yeah
See sergeant bilko having fun again,
Good puppy, good puppy
Rollin' on over for the man....

I believe, I believe what the old man said
Though I know that there's no lord above
I believe in me, I believe in you
And you know I believe in love
I believe in truth though I lie a lot
I feel the pain from the push and shove
No matter what you put me through
I'll still believe in love
And I say

Cherie baby, spliff up
I want to kick back mama
And watch the world cup with ya baby
Yeah, that's right!
We're getting freeky tonight
Let's have some fun while tony's stateside
It's gonna be alright
It's gonna be alright
See tony dancing with dubya
Don't you want to know why?

    General CommentI think most negative feedback is from the video... It's hilarious though, one of the best videos ever made. The song isn't that good without the video.

    General Commenthaven't actually heard this song... but feel there is waaay too much negative feedback from it. A lot more contriversial songs manage to get released... its ridiculous. The lyrics do actually suck, but not coz they are offensive, just coz they are pretty crap

    General CommentNot sure I understood really well what this song is about but it seems to me like it's about how the politics use their power to do what they want and rule the world without even caring about everybody....the message seems to be we cannot trust our leaders (presidents, kings and/or ministers).
    An outstanding video !!! :)

    General CommentFrom what I've heard, George has even admitted that this song was about how the U.S. in his mind deserved what happened on September 11th, or at least the U.S. government did. Try telling that to the people who lost their family members at the WTC who don't even work for the government, George, or the people on the airplanes. You think maybe the terrorists coulda made their anti-US governemnt statement which you agree with in a wee bit different way, Georgie?

    He's also speaking out against Britain for supporting the U.S. "Tony, Tony, Tony, Tony, I know that you're horny, but something about that Bush ain't right" not only illustrates this but implies Tony Blair and Bush are having a homosexual relationship. Maybe George is hoping they're gay so he can join in on the action, I don't know.

    The part that really irks me is that Michael won't release this song in the U.S. That's just being a phony and a fraud. If you want to say it, have the balls to come out and share it with the U.S. and the people whose family members died on the 11th, you coward. By not releasing it here, he's just proving that he cares more about U.S. money than U.S. foreign policy.

    General Commentthis song is really show how george is concerning about what happening in the world cause of muslims terrorist ... you can see him mentioning Ayatollah in his lyrics which this word related to muslims .. he means by that all terrorist muslims will bomb a lot of innocent people in the world and ofcourse he was right and now muslic are tagetting westerns everywhere. This song also show about islamphobia everywhere in the world. So, george means by this song about all arabs terrorist and i thing he trys to tell people in the world all muslims will sooner or later will attack us everywhere if we do not do more effort to stop them from the first place but ofcourse not as bush and blair way !!!

    General CommentAlways taken this to be criticising the government for somewhat blindly following a World "super power". Also seems to have a laugh at the fact that Cherie Blair might be feeling a little neglected. I wouldn't say that not releasing it in America is phony. I should imagine he realises that political views are a lot different in the US and doesn't want to alienate a market.

    General CommentI'm guessing a guy attempts to asassinate Bush and Tony Blair and fails on both accounts
