Blake Shelton gets a booking from an unexpected customer.

My agent booked a Christmas party for me last week

Snuck it in the books; thought it’d be a treat

As it happened it was in my own home town

But when I saw my own address, I felt like a clown


On the day of the gig I went out to the barn

My acoustic on my back; Gwenny on my arm

Seemed the client in this case was my blue tick hound

He had his tail between his legs when we came in and sat down


He nuzzled at my knee as I began to play

He howled along in tune I’m surprised to say

I took a better look and saw who else was there

Two well-behaved skunks and a dandy looking hare


I sang my heart out and Gwenny joined along

The coyote brothers swayed back and forth to the song

There was Mr. and Mrs. Fox; their coats clean and shiny

A couple bull frogs looking dark green and slimy


A raccoon and his kids poked out of the trash can

To get a look at the music-making couple in the band

A coyote hit on Mrs. Skunk; he had too many drinks

That’s when Mr. Skunk decided to make a stink


The bull frogs croaked and then just lay there stunned

The foxes were no fools; they both got up and run

The raccoons closed themselves inside the trash can

My dog looked groggy; could swear he said “damn!”


The Mrs. and I; we high-tailed it out of there

Filled the hot tub with tomato juice; It's true I swear

Next year he’ll have to invite friends that are a bit less farty

And, I’m never, ever gonna play another dog party
