My Dog Is Mean (Memphis Slim)

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
