They wanted something different
a pet that could talk to them
so into the lab the scientist went,
just what the hell did he invent?
They say 2 wrongs don’t make a right
combine them right and you just might
but when the babies came that night
they were not a beauteous sight.
The idea was dogs and humans cloned
the babies were ugly, clean to the bone
when one spoke up in a baritone,
“Which one of you will take me home?”
