"It's Ok to Leave a Dog in a Hot Car" is one of the most iconic and recognizable Dirk McQuickly solo songs. Recorded after the breakup of The Rutles, it was released on his distinctive Punk Floyd album White Dopes on Punk. The lyrics, controversial even today, feature McQuickly endorsing leaving one's dog in a hot car.
- “It’s okay to leave your dog in a hot car (Hot car)
It’s okay to leave your dog in a hot car (Ooh)
Nothing bad could possibly happen
If you leave a dog in a hot car”
- ―Dirk McQuickly, White Dopes on Punk
