Jonathan Coulton's "Space Doggity" in American Sign Language. I'd say this is in celebration of the moon landing anniversary... but it's about the Russians. A Russian dog, to be precise - the first living being in space. I know I've been on a long hiatus, but I promise I have glossed more songs and have much more time now. Lyrics below as always...

The cage is very small
THIS ROOM SMALL
A tiny silver ball
BALL (small morpheme) SILVER
That makes you a hero
YOU ENTER-IT,
The moment you step inside
BECOME FAMOUS
The world is watching you
WORLD WATCH-YOU
What youre about to do
FUTURE YOU DO
Will live on forever
CONTINUE+++
Even though youll be dead
EXCEPT FUTURE YOU DIE
And gone
LOST
Buckle up
BUCKLE (pantomime)
Were about to turn the engines on.
SOON WE START ROCKET-

Boyoyoing
-ROCKET (launching upward)

Hello from Sputnik 2
HI FROM {SPUTNIK 2]
I am receiving you
I CAN HEAR YOU
Thanks for the dog food
THANK-YOU FOR DOG FOOD
Im somewhere above you now
I ABOVE-YOU
Guess what Malashenkov?
RUSSIAN GUY TELL-HIM
I took the collar off
COLLAR I REMOVE-IT
Im holding my own leash
I INDEPENDENT
And walking myself outside
GO OUTSIDE
This door
OPEN DOOR
I dont think
I DONT-THINK
I want to be a good dog anymore.
I WANT OBEY-YOU CONTINUE

Now Im floating free
NOW I FLOAT
And the moons with me
MOON RIGHT-THERE
And its bright enough
IT BRIGHT
To light the dark
DARK MELT-AWAY

And its so high up here
I (emphasis) HIGH-UP
And the stars so clear
STARS SEE-THEM (emphasis)
Are they close enough?
THEY CLOSE ENOUGH?
Will they hear me bark from here?
I BARK, THEY HEAR-ME

Moscow to Sputnik 2
[SPUTNIK 2] HELLO
I think were losing you
WE CANT HEAR YOU
Your life signs are fading
YOU DETERIORATE
We cant really say that were
WE CANT SAY WE
Surprised
SUPRISE
Its a shame
THIS SAD
There is always something
ALWAYS SOMETHING
That gets compromised
EXCHANGE++

[chorus]
