Hound Dog Man
Fabian Lyrics


Hound dog man, hound dog man, I wanna be a hound dog man

I'm gonna get me an ol' hound dog
I'm gonna let 'im lead the way
Then I'm gonna turn 'im loose
We'll go huntin' every day
That's the kind of life for me
There's one thing I wanna be, and that's a
Hound dog man, hound dog man, I wanna be a hound dog man
I'm wanna get up in the mornin'
a-Yeah, with the risin' sun
I'm gonna stay right on that trail
Till the day is done
I think I am old enough
I'm young in years but I'm mighty tough, a-like a
Hound dog man, hound dog man, I wanna be a hound dog man

I'm lookin' for a girl who'll be waitin' when I come home
She's gonna meet me with a kiss
She's gonna be one pretty miss
And every time I go, she gonna miss-a me more and more
She's gonna have a tear in her eye, the time's gonna pass so slow

That's the kind of life for me
a-There's one thing I wanna be, and that's a
Hound dog man, hound dog man, I wanna be a hound dog man

And every time I go, she gonna miss-a me more and more
She's gonna have a tear in her eye, the time's gonna pass so slow

That's the kind of life for me
a-There's one thing I wanna be, and that's a
Hound dog man, hound dog man, I wanna be a hound dog man
Hound dog man, hound dog man, I wanna be a hound dog man
Hound dog man
Hound dog man

Fabian was fun. I think he did not take his "singing star" label too seriously. In the films he made he always seems to be enjoying the singing of those silly songs.

I was a kid in 1959, and I heard that this new singing sensation from the States had made a movie and so I went to check it out. Well, I might have gone to see Fabian but I left the movie house wanting to be Stuart Whitman and madly in love with Carol Lynley

Sounds a bit different to my 45 recording - Fabe is more obviously off key here. On the original single they cover over him so much in the instrumentation his voice sounds adequate.

i love this song

Chef Al Dente

Amazing - the manufactured Elvis clone singing a song about a hound dog to compete with Elvis' hound dog. Were teens back then unable to see through this sort of thing?

MoosicandCritters

Yes, they were. But it really didn't matter. Back then, life was so much more carefree and fun.

Bill Busse

Of course they were and still are. It was a great song though and he was great to look at!

This thing is remixed from the mono original.  You can actually hear Fabian's vocal brought to the forefront.  On the original 45, much of his vocal is buried by the background singers.  Here, you can barely hear them.
