You ain't nothing but a hound dog
Crying all the time.
You ain't nothing but a hound dog
Crying all the time.
Well, you ain't never caught a rabbit
And you ain't 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 ain't never caught a rabbit
And you ain't no friend of mine.
