I just heard, and within five minutes I changed five lines of her famous How much is that doggy in the window? song to make a parody song to honor her at my show tonight.

Her other even bigger hit was Tennessee Waltz.

R.I.P. Patti

that is a real enviable talent, to be able to rapidly customize songs like that.

ah heck, thanks auntblabby. I wasn't gonna post these but here goes. No disrespect meant towards Patti Page.

How much is that doggy in the window? ("Arf! Arf!") The one with the waggily tail?
How much is that doggy in the window? I do hope that doggy's for sale.

I must take a trip to California for that's where some greenbud is grown
I'd like to have a little doggy so I'm not alone when I'm stoned

I read in the papers there are robbers with flashlights that shine in the dark
If my doggy guards my marijuana. He'll scare them away with one bark.

I don't want a bunny or a kitty ("Meow") I don't want a parrot that talks
( I then say "f--- You" in a parrot squawk voice)
I don't want a bowl of little fishies. You can't take a goldfish on a walk ("I've tried").

how much etc.

you might add a lyric about "you can't make a fish pedal a bicycle" or something like that.

maybe you could do a 2 or more stanza wordplay, playing off the divergence in the meaning of "fish pedaling a bicycle" versus "fish peddlers at the market" or something like that.
