You ain't nothing but a hound dog

Been snoopin' 'round the door

You ain't nothing but a hound dog

Been snoopin' 'round my door

You can wag your tail

But I ain't gonna feed you no more



You told me you was high class

But I could see through that

Yes, you told me you was high class

But I could see through that

And daddy I know

You ain't no real cool cat



You ain't nothing but a hound dog

Been snoopin' 'round the door

You're just an old hound dog

Been snoopin' 'round my door

You can wag your tail

But 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

Well you made me weep and moan

'Cause I'm looking for a woman

All your lookin' for is a home

You ain't nothing but a hound dog

Been snoopin' 'round the door

You ain't nothing but a hound dog

Been snoopin' 'round my door

You can wag your tail

But I ain't gonna feed you no more
