Besides a dog, which other animal is mentioned in the lyrics of the Elvis Presley hit “Hound Dog”?
- Rabbit:“Hound Dog” is a twelve-bar blues song written by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. The song has been recorded over 250 times, with Elvis Presley’s 1956 version being the most well-known. Presley’s version, which sold about 10 million copies globally, was his best-selling song. Elvis heard the song for the first time performed by his opening act, and immedietly went to the studio to record it. Elvis changed the line “You said you was high class, but that was just a lie” to “you ain’t never caught a rabbit, and you ain’t no friend of mine.” Song writer Jerry Leiber complained about the revised lyric saying “That was inane… it doesn’t mean anything to me.”
