A man runs on the trail
He says why is a bird chasing me now
Why is he trying to nibble
The top of my head for his chow?
Is this the animal revolution
Or the owl attempting execution
Don't want to end up a jogger
In a jogger graveyard
Making some noise noise
Screaming as the bird approaches
Tucking in my ponytail
Shoulda slept in instead of jogging
Get this owl  away from me
You know I don't find this stuff amusing anymore
I think I need a bodyguard
To run the Capital Crescent Trail now
I’ll bring a machete
A machete to protect me
From the barred owl
f*ckin’ owl

Well, I haven't heard this story yet but it sounds like a doozy. Nice job with this one, Steve! I'm shocked that it took this long to get a repeat of this jingle ( since Tony loves Paul Simon so much. Jingles have come a long way since then. Congrats!

Oh, Steve! You coulda spun gold with "Every Step You Take (Owl Be Watching You)" but you're wise to go with Paul Simon. The Police would have been way too slow to get to teh funnay within 1:05

first of all, it's true, you almost never know the right way to go. unless you get a concept that goes with a specific song I guess, but second, I think your song is funnier and I'm glad they chose it instead. you absolutely nailed this one. the whole thing is funny but at the machete line I just lose it.

Thanks Rob - that means a ton coming from you. Even as I was recording this I was thinking "Sound I have done "Owl Be There" or "Every Step You Take (Owl Be Watching You)." You just never know which is the right way to go. For the record your Talking Heads is much better. I'm sorry they didn't play both but it sounds like they get to your next week.

steve, I think this is your best song. I mean, I love propane, and the fogarty track, and the whole foods one, and the ac/dc one, etc. but this one just kills me.

Owl 1: There's someone outside our nest. Owl 2: Who? Owl 1: Someone should go check it out. Owl 2: Who? Owl 1: WILL YOU JUST GET OFF YOUR ASS AND TAKE CARE OF IT?!
