John Lennon

Hound Dog

Jerry Leiber, Mike Stoller

 

You ain't nothin' but a hound dog,
cryin' all the time;
you ain't nothin' but a hound dog,
cryin' all the time.
You ain't never caught a rabbit
and you ain't no friend of mine.

When they said that you was highclassed,
that was just a lie;
when they said that you was highclassed,
that was just a lie.
You ain't never caught no rabbit,
you ain't no friend of mine.

You ain't nothin' but a hound dog,
cryin' all the time;
you ain't nothin' but a hound dog,
cryin' all the time.
You ain't never caught no rabbit
you ain't no friend of mine.

You ain't nothin' but a hound dog,
cryin' all the time;
you ain't nothin' but a hound dog,
cryin' all the time.
You ain't never caught a rabbit
you ain't no friend of mine.

Well, they said that you was highclassed,
well, that was just a lie;
well, they said that you was highclassed, babe,
you know it's a lie.
You ain't never caught no rabbit,
you ain't no friend of mine.

You ain't nothin' but a hound dog,
cryin' all the time;
you ain't nothin' but a hound dog,
cryin' all the time.
Elvis, I love you!!
You ain't never caught no rabbit
you ain't no friend of mine.
