Hound Dog

Elvis Presley version

You ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog
cryin’ all the time.
You ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog
cryin’ 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.

Big Mama Thornton version

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
