Selsun Blue set to Grateful Dead's Stella Blue

I wrote the words below about the years-long issues surrounding my dog's skin problems. After many hundreds of dollars spent, elimination/restricted diets, veterinary dermatologists and countless hours bathing, vacuuming and flea treating the house we discovered Selsun Blue was the cure! I was so overjoyed it made me sing which led to these made up lyrics set to Grateful Dead's Stella Blue.

All baths combined, they melt into a stream
An itchy coat stings from a mystery
In the end there's just a rash, comes cryin' up the night
Through all the broken skin and vanished fur.
Selsun Blue. Selsun Blue. 

When all the shine is down, there's nothing left to gleam.
There's just the redness left and broken skin.
In the end there's still those sores, comes cryin' like a wolf.
Down every fold of skin that's ever been.
Selsun Blue. Selsun Blue.

I've washed in every pricey med shampoo, can't heal for tryin'
Pour on a potion just one more time
Gonna make me shine, shine

I roll into a towel and no problems for me!
There's nothing my coat will hold for very long
And when you hear that dryer, come cryin' like the wind
It seems like all that rashin' was just a dream
Selsun Blue. Selsun Blue.
