The Lyrics

Hound dogs to buy or rent
You gotta take them today
For heaven sake
I'll even throw in this splendiferous rake.

'Cause I ain't got no wad to chew
Ain't got no food, ain't got no shack
Just wornout shoes and a aching back.

Hound Dogs to buy or rent
Too lazy to track anything
But they've got an awful scent.

It took lots of years for me to get this way
My credit's no good and I can't pay
So buy these hounds, what do you say?

Hound Dogs for fifty cent
Ain't got no food, can't pay my rent
All I've got is an aching back & wornout shoes
Dogs are yours for only fifty cent.

Hound dogs for fifty cent
Too lazy to track anything
But they've got an awful scent.
