about

The Wisdom of Hounds is a character study for Oberon the Irish wolf hound, my favorite character from Kevin Hearne's Iron Druid Chronicles.

I've played this track at live shows at conventions for a couple of years now, and the live version is up on YouTube.

You should go to kevinhearne.com and buy all his books (twice--buy a copy for a friend while you're at it) but be prepared for Oberon to be your favorite character. And beware the guilt ferrets. They're bastards.

lyrics

Rub my belly, scratch my back, take me out running in the grass
Tell me stories while you bathe me, maybe let me smell your ass
Give me sausages and bitches 'cause they make the world go round,
It's the secret to life it's... The Wisdom of Hounds.

I can't help noticing you're anxious, there's prob'ly something wrong
Some unfortunate thing has you singing sad songs
Those guilt ferrets are bastards, you're feeling overwhelmed
But don't worry, I've got this, I know how to help...

Rub my belly, scratch my back, take me out running in the grass
Tell me stories while you bathe me, maybe let me smell your ass
Let's get sausages and bitches 'cause they make the world go round,
It's the cure for what ails you. It's The Wisdom of Hounds.

I see you're doubtful my prescription could really cheer you up,
But have you seen someone frowning while cuddling a pup?
Or an apple chicken sausage that you didn't want to taste?
could bitches raise your spirits? Well just let me count the ways!

Then rub my belly, scratch my back, take me out running in the grass
Tell me stories while you bathe me, maybe let me smell your ass
Let's get sausages and bitches 'cause they make the world go round,
It's the cure for what ails you. It's The Wisdom of Hounds.

And if you ever feel the need to get out of this place, pack it up & just leave,
Maybe the price was too steep, the price we all pay for our badassery
I'll be right by your side, like a true wolfhound should,
If there's sausage and bitches, then anywhere's good!

Rub my belly, scratch my back, take me out running in the grass
Tell me stories while you bathe me, maybe let me smell your ass
Let's get sausages and bitches 'cause they make the world go round,
It's the cure for what ails you. It's The Wisdom of Hounds.
But nobody cares for... the Wisdom of Hounds.
