Lyrics

You’re a good for nothing hound dog. Make me cry all the time.
I try to take you out walking but you’d prefer to drive
The neighbors all talkin’ how we argue, and we fight.

You good for nothin’ hound dog. Go sneaking to the bar.
Lipstick on your collar. Never stayin in the yard.
Make me go out looking and ask the neighbors where you are.

Judy caught you digging up her garden
Polly says you get into the trash
Peg found you sleeping on her sofa
And Mary says you deserve a slap
Listen here you good for nothing hound dog
You’re lucky the pound won’t take you back

You’re a good for nothing hound dog. Make me cry all the time.
You’re a good for nothing hound dog. Make me cry all the time.
One thing I know for sure, you aint no friend of mine.

Dave says you owe him fifty dollars
Greg told me you were not with him
Keith said you never sent those flowers
And Sal thinks you ought to join a gym.
Listen sister and brother. Pray for this stray that I took in.

You’re a good for nothing hound dog. Make me cry all the time.
You’re a good for nothing hound dog. Make me cry all the time.
One thing I know for sure, you aint no friend of mine.

Maybe you were born in a junk yard
Maybe you were raised in a zoo
Baby there are secrets you are keeping
Wishin you would share one or two
I must be a sucker for hound dogs
Or else I wouldn’t be with you.

You’re a good for nothing hound dog. Make me cry all the time.
You’re a good for nothing hound dog. Make me cry all the time.
One thing I know for sure is you ain't no friend of mine.
