We Need YOUR Help!

Think you can be the next
'American Paw-dol'?
Here's your chance!
Every good TV show needs a theme song.
Music isn't easy,
especially that Gm7 chord
(no thumbs!)

So, without further ado
here are my first attempts at a theme song for

Jack-igan's Island

Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale,
A tale of a fateful pup.
That started when he headed west,
And forgot to bring a cup!

He was a mighty barking pup,
His voice was loud and sure.
Five puppies and a kitty-cat
Went west where the air was pure!

No, that's no doesn't really tell a story!

The Jack-y Bunch

Here's a story,
of a lovely puppy,
who was bringing up 3 very lovely pups
all of them had hair of gold, like their mother,
the youngest one in curls.

Well, that's just silly. First of all, I don't have any pups and secondly, where is their mother? What kind of mother just runs off and leaves her babies with me?

The Beverly Jack-billies

Come 'n listen to my story 'bout a pup named Jack,
A poor Labrador, barely kept his family fed....

No no no. That won't work either. For one thing 'fed' doesn't rhyme with 'Jack'.

Well, I'm stumped. I guess I'll have to ask the tall guy if he can come up with something on that big black thing that he keeps in the room I'm not allowed to go into!

If you have any ideas, they would be greatly a-paw-ciated! :)

Speaking of songs (see note below):

Note: Oh well, there was a really cool video here of a dog
who didn't like the song "Happy Birthday" but it didn't want to embed,
so I just linked directly to it on YouTube!


  1. Good luck in your quest for the ideal themesong, whatever it will be it should have some essential words:
    1. Westward Ho!
    2. Ornery
    3. Ranch
    4. Food
    5. Jack
    I'm sure someone crafty will think of one, I like your gilligans one best!


  2. Can't wait to hear you SING the song, Jack! Maybe TG can accompany you on piano or guitar?


  3. You are cracking me up.

    Can't see the video though. It says it's been removed.

  4. Oooops, video has been removed...was it X-rated?

  5. Great songs Jack. Are you the next Paul Williams? You DO have three things in are both great songwriters, you are both blonde and you are both short...I'm just sayin'....

  6. Hey Jack I'd love to help you with a song...but we aren't that good at it...have you thought about something to the tune of Old Danny Boy??
    Your video has been removed...I guess somebody didn't like the 'ho' part of the title...

  7. I think you have some great ideas, and I know some people in the music business. Let me know if we can help.
    Can I ask a favor? This raffle for a GREAT cause ends this week and has some SUPER dog prizes.
    If you can tell your friends.

  8. All I know is you look great in a cowboy hat :o) We do like the title the Beverly Jack-billies!

  9. Hi Jack,
    How about Home on the Range? TG will have great words, but here's a start --

    Oh give me a home, where the Labradors roam
    And the Pugs and the Aussies all play
    Where seldom is heard that dreaded "No" word
    And the treats and the walks last all day
    Home, home on the range. . .

    Yee Haw!
    Colorado R.G.

  10. hey Jack,
    how about 'A finely loved Labradawg,who loved his family equally back..' for the second line?

    ur 'westward ho' thingie actually reminded mom to take out her long forgotten but much loved Don Williams records.
    Daddy loves to try them out on his guitar n it makes us fall is really soothing.Will post some pics soon

    Only the ekhhoes of the windmills of your mind


  12. Lookin' snazzy in your cowboy hat, cowboy! :) I'm not too good of a howlsinger but, you do an excellent job at it!



  13. Jack,
    Going to have to ask my little Brother Blues for some help on this one. Let me see if he comes up with anything good. I'm all dew paws when it comes to music. BOL! But I like your attempts. Looking good in the Cowboy Hat too.

    Much Love,
    Josie and Blues

  14. Geeze Jack! We had no idea you were sooo talented! You could be a winner on the Country Music Awards!

    Keep on writing, your good man!

    Riley and Star.

  15. So many wonderful ideas Jack!! Daddy is the song writer in the family so I will ask him when he gets home if he can think of anything!


  16. I'll have you know I sang all three songs and now I think the Brady Bunch is stuck in my head~~HELP!
