From Bolt Lyrics for “Barking at the Moon”(There Is No Home Like the One You Got) by Jenny Lewis

This afternoon, I was watching Bolt with my grandson. Bolt tells the story of the canine star of a fictional sci-fi/action show.  The dog (whose voice is John Travolta) believes his powers are real and he embarks on a cross country trek to save his co-star (Penny) from a threat he believes is just as real as the show he stars in and the character he portrays. This song by Jenny Lewis is part of the sound track and I was so impressed with the song that I decided to try to add this upbeat song to my children’s programs somehow. Lewis is an actress and musician. Her website is here:

From Bolt Lyrics for “Barking at the Moon”(There Is No Home Like the One You Got) by Jenny Lewis

I have got so much to give,
I swear I do,
I may not have nine lives,
But this one feels brand new.

Yes, I’ve lived a good one
I have tried to be true
There are some things
I never realized,
Till I met you.

How the wind feels on my cheeks,
When I’m barking at the moon,
There is no home like the one you’ve got
Cause that home belongs to you.

Woo woo, here I come,
Woo woo, back to you,
There is no home like the one you’ve got
Cause that home belongs to you.

Well, I was in the trouble bad,
I was so confused,
I may not see in color, babe,
But I sure can feel blue.

I have been a lot of things,
They may not all be true.
My experience was so mysterious
Till I met you.

Now the sun will rise in the east,
But I’m barking at the moon,
There is no home like the one you’ve got
Cause that home belongs to you.

Woo woo, here I come,
Woo woo, back to you,
There is no home like the one you’ve got
Cause that home belongs to you.

There is no home like the one you’ve got
Cause that home belongs to you. (Repeat again slowly)
