« Hound Dog », de Big Mama Thornton (1952)

Jaquette de l'album « Hound Dog », de Big Mama Thornton

Dans cette chanson, Big Mama Thornton répète plusieurs fois à quelqu’un – sûrement un homme - qu’il n’est qu’un chien de chasse et qu’elle ne le nourrira plus. Cette personne l’a fait pleurer et gémir bien trop de fois pour qu’elle lui ouvre sa porte. Cette comparaison est employée pour montrer à l’homme auquel elle s’adresse qu’elle ne s’abaissera plus jamais à son niveau. Bien dit, Big Mama ! En revanche, ce n’est pas très sympa pour les chiens…

Paroles de la chanson « Hound Dog »

You ain't nothin' but a hound dog

Been snoopin' 'round my door

You ain't nothin' but a hound dog

Been snoopin' 'round my door

You can wag your tail

But I ain't gonna feed you no more

 

You told me you was high class

But I could see through that

Yes, you told me you was high class

But I could see through that

And daddy I know

You ain't no real cool cat

 

You ain't nothin' but a hound dog

Been snoopin' 'round my door

You're just a old hound dog

Been snoopin' 'round my door

You can wag your tail

But I ain't gonna feed you no more

 

Oh, play that thing, boy!

Aw listen, isn't that them old hound dog? (Oh-woo!)

Oh, play it, it's all right up here

And listen to that old hound dog howl (Ooo-wo!)

Oh, play it boy, play it

Oh, you make me feel good

Oh, do not mess around any longer daddy

Now wag your tail

 

Oh, get it

Oh, get it now, get it, get it, get it

Oh, you old hound dog

 

You made me feel so blue

You made me weep and moan

You made me feel so blue

Yeah you made me weep and moan

Cause you ain't looking for a woman

All you're lookin' is for a home

 

You ain't nothin' but a hound dog

Been snoopin' 'round my door

You ain't nothin' but a hound dog

Been snoopin' 'round my door

You can wag your tail

But I ain't gonna feed you no more

 

Awoo!
