Hound Dog

(words & music by jerry leiber - mike stoller)

You aint nothin but a hound dog

Cryin all the time.

You aint nothin but a hound dog

Cryin all the time.

Well, you aint never caught a rabbit

And you aint no friend of mine.

 

When they said you was high classed,

Well, that was just a lie.

When they said you was high classed,

Well, that was just a lie.

You aint never caught a rabbit

And you aint no friend of mine.

Elvis Presley: Hound Dog "Censur"

Big Mama Thornton: Hound Dog

You ain't nothin but a hound dog, been snooping round my door

You ain't nothin but a hound dog, been snooping round my door

You can wag your tail but Lord I ain't gonna feed you no more

 

You told me you were high class, but I can see through that

You told me you were high class, but I can see through that

And daddy I know you ain't no real cool cat

 

You ain't nothin but a hound dog, been snooping round my door

You ain't nothin but a hound dog, been snooping round my door

You can wag your tail but Lord I ain't gonna feed you no more

 

You made me feel so blue, you made me weep and moan

You made me feel so blue, you made me weep and moan

You ain't looking for a woman,

Lord knows what you're looking for

 

You ain't nothin but a hound dog, been snooping round my door

You ain't nothin but a hound dog, been snooping round my door

You can wag your tail but Lord I ain't gonna feed you no more
