From the recording I Shih Tzu Not - 2023

Cooper is the dog which adorns the cover of this record. He's Maria's dog and he's quite a personality. He does pop on the edges and he does eat pencils...and we will never understand what's going on in the little man's head.

Lyrics

COOPER THE POOPER
words and music by Patrick Frost

He's Cooper The Pooper. He really is a trooper.
He looks like Gary Cooper in a stupor, but he's Cooper.
He likes to eat pencils. He doesn’t need utensils
They're really quite delicious to him.

And we will never understand
What's going on in the little man's head.
He smells so funny and he looks so sad.
But, he's a pretty good dog. The best I ever had.

He poops on the edges between the sidewalk hedges.
That's what some cat alleges to witness. The witness
Is crowing and cowing, but most of all meowing.
This discourse is something to see.

And we will never understand
What's going on in the little man's head.
He smells so funny and he looks so sad.
But, he's a pretty good dog. The best I ever had.

His brother is Gussy who typically is fussy,
But that's because he must be as chief of Security.
He's older and leaner and has a broken wiener.
That's why he's so much meaner than Cooper the Pooper.

And he will never understand
What's going on in the little man's head.
He smells so funny and he looks so sad.
But, he's a pretty good dog. The best I ever had.

And we will never understand
what's going on in the little man's head.
He smells so funny and he looks so sad.
But, he's a pretty good dog. The best I ever had.
