Serenading a Chihuahua

Malinda Herman sings a love song to her beloved dog. This is adorable, but the cat does not appreciate the sentiment a bit. AsianHawke gives some background.
This is the quintessential song of refugees in 1980's Thai refugee camps. LOL. They used to play the original on the PA system. It's a song that most Hmong, Mien, and Southeast Asians may know and don't even know the origin of. It's by Leo Sayer.

Song goes back farther than that...

"More Than I Can Say" is a song written by Sonny Curtis and Jerry Allison, both former members of Buddy Holly's band the Crickets. They recorded it in 1959 soon after Holly's death and released it in 1960. Their original version hit No. 42 on British Record Retailer Chart in 1960. It has been notably performed by singers Bobby Vee, Leo Sayer, and Sammy Kershaw.
