This is a song about a Bouvish looking dog who is likely to be rejected by Bouvier Rescue because he  "isn't really a Bouv"  ,  "just a Bouv wannabe"   or  "just a pretender." 
If left at the Pound, this large , shaggy , badly matted and filthy dog is probably going to die.

The "Bouv Pretender"

(to tune of "The Great Pretender")

by Pam Green 2003

 
Oh-o-o, yes, I'm a "Bouv Pretender",
Pretending that all will be well;
I gave my trust,
But to my disgust,
They left me to die in this Hell.
 
Oh-o-o yes , I'm a "Bouv Pretender",
Pretending's my one chance to live ;
I'm not a Bouv,
But I swear I'll prove
I've got just as much love to give !
 
     Too real is this feeling of fear and dread,
     Too real as I hear that I soon will be dead !
 
Oh-o-o , yes, I'm a "Bouv Pretender"
I pretend I'm too stoic to weep;
I pretend I'm fine,
But I'm next in line,
The next one to be "put to sleep".
 
Oh-o-o , yes, I'm a "Bouv Pretender"
Pretending it's all a bad dream;
Let me find a friend,
Let my troubles end,
Oh, let me wake up with a scream.
 
     Oh, please, let me wake from this dream !

          Though I'm not your breed,
          If my plea you'll heed
