Anybody here want to buy a little dog?
I'm right here to sell you
Ain't no catfish, ain't no hog
And I'm right here to tell you

That dog, that Tennessee dog
Oh his head is long, ears is flat
He never stops eatin' till the ballin' of the jack
That dog, talkin' 'bout that dog
He's the meanest dog that come from Tennessee

Now, he can eat more meat than any butcher dog
Eats steak, pork chops and liver
He can catch more rats than any other cats
On this side o' the Mississippi River

That dog, that dog, that...talkin' 'bout that dog
Oh, his head is long, ears is flat
He never stops eatin' till the ballin' of the jack
That dog (lay down there, boy)
That mean little dog (I tell you, lay down!)
He's the meanest dog that come from Tennessee

Now does anybody here want to buy a little dog?
I'm right here to sell you
Ain't no catfish, ain't no hog
And I'm right here to tell you

That dog, talkin' bout that dog
Oh, his head is long and ears is flat
He never stops eatin' till the ballin' of the jack
That dog, (lay down there, I said)
Mean little dog
He's the meanest dog that come from Tennessee

I say come here to me, tabby
Balls right up and shiver
He can catch more rats than any other cats
On this side o' the Mississippi River

That dog, that dog, that dog, that mean little dog
Oh yes his head is long, ears is flat
He never stops a-eatin' till the ballin' of the jack
That dog, talkin' 'bout that dog
He's the meanest dog that come from Tennessee, I mean
