Songs To Which I Cannot Listen Any More

I put the iPod on "random shuffle all" today, and this one came up: K T Tunstall, Black Horse and the Cherry Tree.  It's a fine song -- yet I cannot listen to it any more.

It used to be, that when we heard the song in years past, in the verse that went:

No, no
No, no no no
No, no
You're not the one for me

We would instead sing as if we were ottoman-shaped dog:

Yes, yes
Yes, yes yes yes
Yes, yes
I'd like the extra cheese

Ah, ottoman-shaped dog. You were a Very Good Dog, Indeed. Even -- and perhaps especially -- when you would abandon all sense of dignity and sleep, belly up, on the bed.
