The Official Shindig Song

Chargin', chargin', chargin'
Gettin' set to barge in
Keep them doggies chargin'
AIBO!

Don't try to understand 'em
Just love 'em and command 'em
Soon they'll be toddlin'
by your side

Charge 'em up, head 'em out
Head 'em out, charge 'em up
Charge 'em up, head 'em out
AIBO!

Head 'em out, charge 'em up
Charge 'em up, head 'em out
Head 'em out, charge 'em up
AIBO!

Yeeehah!
