Memphis Slim – My Dog Is Mean lyrics

How come my dog's so calm
Man, whenever you're on the scene?
How come my dog's so calm
Man, whenever you're on the scene?
Man I just can't understand it
'Cause I know my dog is mean

Well, he bit my next door neighbor
Bit my father too
Growl at my mummy
Ate up my own shoe

How come my dog's so calm
Man, whenever you're on the scene?
Man I just can't understand it
'Cause I know my dog is mean

You've been coming around my house
When my wife is all alone
No, you don't know voodoo
My dog don't like no bone

How come my dog's so calm
Man, whenever you're on the scene?
Man I just can't understand it
'Cause I know my dog is mean

Well, I've got a good watch dog
With me he never failed
But every time you come around, boy
He just sit and wag his tail

How come my dog's so calm
Man, whenever you're on the scene?
Man I just can't understand it
'Cause I know my dog is mean

Now, he can see like an owl
He can hear you drop a pin
But what I want to know, boy
How the hell, did you get in?

How come my dog's so calm
Man, whenever you're on the scene?
Man I just can't understand it
'Cause I know my dog is mean
