Pit Bulls Got Bad Rep? Here’s Why.

By
In dog, video

If you haven’t heard by now, pit bull terriers (or bull terriers in general) have a reputation problem.

I mean so bad that even politicians are often waging war against them.

It seems like no matter how much GOOD publicity they get (even from a Hollywood celebrity) , pit bulls’s reputation always seem to be in the gutter.

Despite how helpful & innocent pit bulls actually are.. or how they’re just like any other dog breed, their reputation as “aggressive dogs” will always remain in some people.

So, this song writer decided to write a catchy song about pit bulls.

Hope you like it. If you’d like you can sing along. The lyric is below the video.

Pit Bull Blues (by John Shipe)

People see me walking down the street, they all run and hide.
I used to take it personally, now I take it in stride.
I got nothing against no one, I wouldn’t hurt a fly.
But people seem to think I’m mean, and here’s why:

Chorus

I’m a Pit Bull
A big brown, red-nosed pit bull.
A tooth-bearing, muscle-bound Pit Bull.
I look like I could tear the steel off a locomotive freight train.

People park three spaces when I’m waitin’ in the car.
All the kids in the neighborhood, they never walk through my yard.
There’s a rumor floating ‘round the county that I ate three cats.
But I swear from the bottom of my canine heart that I didn’t do that, no I didn’t do that.

But I’m a Pit Bull,
A tooth-bearing, muscle-bound Pit Bull.
A big brown red-nosed Pit Bull.
I looks like I could dig a hole through a concrete wall.

Bridge

I got these Pit Bull Blues,
All I wanna do is sniff your shoes,
I ain’t no killer hound.
No, I’m the friendliest dog in town.

The sheer sound of my barking could break through arctic ice.
But deep down, I’m a pussy cat; I’m just trying to be nice.
In case you didn’t notice, I’m wagging my tail at the speed of light.
But no matter what I do, I’m accused of looking for a fight.

‘Cause I’m a Pit Bull,
A tooth-bearing, muscle-bound Pit Bull.
A big brown red-nosed Pit Bull.
I look like I could crush a cannonball in my jaws.

But I couldn’t do any of those things.

Quite catchy, huh?

Here’s a “remake” video of this song by another pit bull lover:
