We like to do the last number and go and recover.

One, two, three, four!

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 high classed,
That was just a lie;
When they said that you was high classed,
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 high classed,
Well, that was just a lie;
Well, they said that you was high classed, 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
