With Apologies To 'The Kinks'

In light of the details about how Obama ate dog meat (in his own words) when he was a child, I couldn't help but wonder how that would sound like if it was sung as a ballad.

To be sung to the tune of Lola.  

I met him when my dad split the scene
He took us in and said his name was Lola
L-O-L-O Lolo
He said was fond of dogs
As he asked me for my dog's name, I said "Fido". 
F-I-D-O, Fido, Fa-fa-fa Fido.  

Well, I'm not the world's smartest guy
But when he said he liked my dog there was a gleam in his eye
Oh my Fido.  Fi-Fi-Fi-Fi Fido.
I'm haven't been the most observant guy
but I couldn't help wonder what he meant by 'A new recipe to try'

Well I'm not the worlds smartest guy
But when he said dinner was lamb I think it was a lie
Oh my Fido.  Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa Fido.
I'm not dumb but I can't understand
why this looks and smells nothing like lamb
Oh my Fido. Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa Fido, Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa Fido

Well I cleaned my plate and he fetched me some more
And I never tasted food like this before 
 He picked me up and said to me
"Fido had four legs but now he has three"
Now I try not to be the class dunce
But Lolo said with a dog like this you don't eat him all at once
Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa Fido, Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa Fido
Fido,  Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa Fido, Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa Fido

I pushed him away
I walked to the door
I fell to the floor
I got down on my knees
Then I looked at him and he at me

Well that's the way that I want it to stay
And I always want it to be that way for my Fido.
Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa Fido
Cats will be cats and dogs will be dinner
It's a mixed up muddled up shook up world except for Fido.
Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa Fido

Well I left Hawaii just a week before
And I'd never ever tasted puppy before
But Lolo smiled and took me by the hand
And said dear boy I'm gonna make you understand

Well I know this may seem a little wrong
But a three legged dog didn't last very long
I ate my Fido.
Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa Fido,
Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa Fido,
Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa Fido,
Fa-Fa-Fa-Fa Fido.
