Who Let The Dogs Out

Despite the fact that its lyrics were almost unanimously criticized by specialized reviewers, Baha Men’s “Who Let The Dogs Out” became a pretty much successful song, being the 4th biggest-selling single of 2000 in the United Kingdom, and reaching the #1 chart position in Australia and New Zealand. The song was originally written and recorded by Anslem Douglas, and it was, at the time, titled “Doggie”.

[Hook x4]
Who let the dogs out?
(woof, woof, woof, woof)

[Verse 1]
When the party was nice, the party was jumpin’ (Hey, Yippie, Yi, Yo)
And everybody havin’ a ball (Hah, ho, Yippie Yi Yo)
I tell the fellas “Start the name callin'” (Yippie Yi Yo)
And the girls respond to the call
I heard a woman shout out

[Hook x4]

[Hook Cont’d]
I see ya’ little speed boat head up our coast
She really want to skip town
Get back gruffy, back scruffy
Get back you flea-infested mongrel!

[Verse 2]
Gonna tell myself, “Hey man no get angry” (Hey, Yippie, Yi, Yo)
To any girls calling them canine, hey! (Yippie, Yi, Yo)
But they tell me “Hey Man, It’s part of the Party!” (Yippie Yi, Yo)
You put a women in front and her man behind (Yippie, Yi, Yo)
I heard a woman shout out

[Hook x3]
Who let the dogs out?!

[Bridge x2]
Say, A doggy is nuttin’ if he don’t have a bone!
(Oh doggy hold ya’ bone, oh doggy hold it)

[Hook x4]

[Rap showdown]
Well if I am a dog, the party is on
I gotta get my groove cause my mind done gone
Do you see the rays comin’ from my eye
Walking through the place
That Diji man is breakin’ it down?
Me and My white short shorts
And I can’t see color, any color will do
I’ll stick on you, that’s why they call me Pitbull
Cause I’m the man of the land
When they see me they say WOOOOO!!!(howl)
