You better leave my kitten all alone
You better leave my kitten all alone
Well I tell you big bad bulldog
Well, you better leave her alone

Don`t you know
My kitten isn't dead
Don`t you know
My kitten isn't dead
So get your hands off of her
'Cause I`m her lovin` man

Well mister dog
I`m gonna hit you
On the top of your head
That girl`s gonna miss you
And you`re gonna wish that you were dead

You better leave my kitten all alone
I love my little kitten
Well, like you hound dogs love your bone
Well mister dog
I`m gonna hit you
On the top of your head
That girl`s gonna miss you
And you`re gonna wish that you were dead

You better leave my kitten all alone
I tell you big bad bulldog
Well, you better leave her
I tell you big bad bulldog
Well, you better leave her
I tell you big bad bulldog
Well, you better leave her alone

You better leave
You better leave
You better leave
My kitten all alone
