Spunk Fought the Mouse and the Mouse Won

September 04, 2017  •  22 Comments

Spunk and I were making our rounds on the property together about mid-morning. We were by the wood fence on the south side of the property when I almost stepped on a mouse and it ran up the outside of my pants leg. Spunk knocked it off and went after it, chasing it up and down the fence. Spunk soon discovered it was more like Mighty Mouse. It bit Spunk on the paw, Spunk threw it, it came back at Spunk, Spunk gave the mouse a punch in the face with a left hook, and then they had a face off before the mouse ran under Spunk and made it into the neighbor's yard.  The AWBs insisted on making a music video about the encounter. I said there wasn't time, but they assured me they could do it. So one set about writing lyrics, while another found suitable music. Then they recorded the music track, made the video, then they gave me the video so I could edit in the stills. I've posted the video first, followed by the lyrics, and then selected stills from Spunk's losing fight with the mouse this morning.

 

 

Spunk Fought The Mouse
Words by Timothy Price
Performed by AWB
Music by Sonny Curtis

 

Spunk was a Rockin in the hot sun
Spunk fought the mouse and the mouse won (2x)

Spunk needed action cause he had none
Spunk fought the mouse and the mouse won (2x)

He lost to a mouse and it felt so bad, guess his race was run
It’s not the best fight that he ever had
Spunk fought the mouse and the mouse won (2x)

Go Spunk! Go Spunk! Show that mousy now
Go Spunk! Go Spunk! Show that mousy how

Spunk punched the mouse with a left hook
Spunk fought the mouse and the mouse won (2x)

The mouse won the fight and Spunk lost his fun
Spunk fought the mouse and the mouse won (2x)

He lost to a mouse and it felt so bad, guess his race was run
It’s not the best fight that he ever had
Spunk fought the mouse and the mouse won (2x)

Spunk fought the mouse and the mouse won (4x)

 

 

Spunk about to pounce on the mouse.

 

The mouse jumps up on the fence.

 

climbs and climbs.

 

Spunk's strategy is to let the mouse tire himself out climbing the fence.

 

Spunk makes his move.

 

Spunk knocks the mouse loose from the fence.

 

The mouse challenges Spunk.

 

The mouse tries to get away.

 

Spunk does a quick grab, the mouse bites Spunk and spunk tosses the mouse in front of him (it all happened so fast I couldn't get the action).

 

The mouse comes back at Spunk, and Spunk punches the mouse in the face with a left hook.

 

Un-phased by Spunk's left hook, the mouse challenges Spunk.

 

They get in each other's faces.

 

The mouse takes a swing at Spunk.

 

The mouse ran up on a branch saw the paparazzo with a scary looking device. He turned and made a daring dash under Spunk.

 

Spunk makes a last dash effort to get the mouse, but the mouse gave Spunk the slip — Spunk put up a good fight, but the mouse won.

Hi Lavinia. Needles to say the mouse was genius and promiscuous enough to thwart the Spunk.

You are a boundless source of creativity, Tim! Your visitor looks like a member of the genus Peromyscus.
