There is a song that is an anthem for homeless animals everywhere. It’s called “Take Me Home,” and it was recorded by Jack Kramer (my husband) and his band. The purpose in recording this version of the song was so it could be used by shelters and rescues to raise money for saving animals. Now the song is on Youtube and is available for anyone working with animals to use. It can be used as a background in videos of dogs in shelters, photos of cats in cages, or to network dogs dumped in the Redlands area of South Florida.
Some lyrics are:
Take me home and I’ll be extra good to you.
Take me home and I’ll make all your dreams come true.
I’m out here all alone and I’m yours for your very own.
Take me home and I’ll be good to you.
Other lyrics include:
Take me home; I really need a family.
I get scared, ’cause I don’t know my destiny.
I’m out here all alone and I’m your for your very own.
So take me home and I’ll be good to you.
It’s an upbeat song, and truer words have never been sung about homeless animals. It’s about the love that adopted and rescued animals feel for those who take them home. It’s truly an animal anthem. Chicago Animal Care and Control used it in a public service announcement many years ago.
Please feel free to use it. Sing it. Have it as the music for your videos. We’d love it if you’d let us know how it’s being used! The photos of dogs and cats in the video are of dogs and cats that we’ve rescued and fostered and dogs and cats in shelters who have needed homes. Many were included in posts written by this Examiner. Some are still waiting for homes.
‘Take Me Home’ was originally recorded by the band The Second Coming on Mercury Records. Contact Jack Kramer at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
