Try 'Get along little dogie'. Something I read said her take on the song is much like the usual song, so start with the regular lyrics and then one of the cognizatti can edit it.

It can't be TOO close to the usual song. My knowledge of Les Barker tells me his version probably has to do with a dachshund.

As I was a-walking one morning for pleasure,
I passed by the pet shop as I made my way,
I spied a young dachshund, I would have walked onward,
But deep in my heart I could hear a voice say.

Whoop-i-tee I O, git a long little doggy,
A poor young dachshund and give him a home,
Whoop-i-tee I O, you don't want them corgies,
Git a long little doggy, and give him a bone.

Oooooooh

I looked at that long-wheelbased dog in the window,
I heard that mysterious voice in my ear,
"Forget them alsatians and setters and wolfhounds,"
It said, "You don't need all them big bastards dear."

Whoop-i-tee I O, git a long little doggy,
A poor young dachshund and take him back home,
Whoop-i-tee I O, you don't want them corgies,
Git a long little doggy, and give him a bone.

Oooooooh

You need a pal what has plenty of headroom,
A friend with a tail away from its nose,
I walked down the shop, and I did as requested,
Said clearly, and firmly, "I'll have one of those."

Whoop-i-tee I O, git a long little doggy,
A poor young dachshund and take him back home,
Whoop-i-tee I O, you don't want them corgies,
Git a long little doggy, and give him a bone.

Whoop-i-tee I O, git a long little doggy,
A poor young dachshund and take him back home,
Whoop-i-tee I O, you don't want them corgies,
Git a long little doggy, and give him a bone.

Oooooooh, Oooooooooh, Arf!

The Ooooooooh and Arf bits are my not-too-brilliant representation of JT's performance, you'd have to hear it to get the flavour.

The song is on Guide Cats for the Blind and Tubular Dogs. I don't have either recording/book, but they're easy to find on line.

June actually does this song brilliantly on the Guidecats album - in spite of her rather dour reputation she makes this genuinely funny.

As is her rendition of Les's parody of the Roseville Fair, which is also lurking somewhere on this site.
