Dj Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince — A Dog Is A Dog lyrics

"You ain't nothin' but a dog!"
"You ain't nothin' but a dog!"
"You ain't nothin' but a dog!"
"You ain't nothin' but a dog!"

Now, I don't know what it is,
But I've had this problem since I was a lil' kid:
Girls be drawn to me.
You might be asking yourself 'How big a problem could that be? "
Check this out, how big this is, y'all,
Being this F-L-Y got pit-falls.
Cause I got it rough,
Cause one girl for me ain't never been enough,
And it seems women can't handle when your paintbrush is for more than one canvas,
But I gotta keep paintin' on,
Like Piccasso, going 'till the break o' dawn.
Now the way I play, the things I say,
Ain't never been a lie, cause I ain't that type a guy.
And that's why I get totally appauled,
When females say that I ain't nothin' but a dog...

A dog, a dog, a dog, a dog,
"You ain't nothin' but a dog!"
A dog, a dog, a dog, a dog,
"You ain't nothin' but a dog!"

Back in highschool, there was a girl named Tracy,
Used to do her best to try an' disgrace me.
She tried to destroy the fp,
Told all her friends I was was a D-O-G.
But yo, I swear it was a mis-understandin'
But she seem to think that I planned it.
She had this friend named Evette,
That wanted to double-date,
Cause she was likin' Jeff,
But I showed up alone,
Told 'em that Jeff was sick at home,
I said 'i tried to call you,
But we can still double date, me plus y'all two! '
She didn't get what the joke was all about,
And she smacked the taste out my mouth,
With a huff and a puff she walked off,
And then Tracy said 'He ain't nothing but a dog... '

A dog, a dog, a dog, a dog,
"You ain't nothin' but a dog!"
A dog, a dog, a dog, a dog,
"You ain't nothin' but a dog!"

God damnit, I ain't no dog,
And that's one'a them things I refuse to be called.
Cause that lable just ain't fair, yo
Look, I'm a prince, I'm supposed to have a harum.
Well of course I like you, but I like her, too
And I like that other girl too,
What do you mean I'm just like you Mother singuhs?
Look, I don't see any rings on these fingers!
I ain't ready to settle down quite yet,
I wanna carve my name wit' a knife-set,
I want a shoe-box fulla love notes,
I want my phone to ring 'til it's broke.
I wanna dance in France and in Italy,
And girls in Egypt only thinkin' of me,
I wanna be in a mix, that's all,
But I guess to you I ain't nothing but a dog...

A dog, a dog, a dog, a dog,
"You ain't nothin' but a dog!"
A dog, a dog, a dog, a dog,
"You ain't nothin' but a dog!"

Yo baby, can I rap to you for a second?
Yo, I just wanna talk!
I wanna know: Why I gotta be the dog?
Why 'd-O-G' gotta refer to me?
Look, baby I'm 21 years old,
You know, I'm making a little bit a money,
I'm just tryin' to see the world,
Have a little fun, you know?
And yes, I have a lot of 'friends, ' well, associates,
I like to think of them as 'Creative Date Associates'
I mean, Evette is my associate, Dawn is my associate,
I mean, I'm just trying to enjoy myself,
But you keep callin' me a dog.
Oh, I'm a dog? (Dog!) I'm a dog, right?
Well, umm, ok: Ruff! Ruff!

"Ain't nothin' but a dog"

*Constant Growling in background*

"Ain't nothin' but a dog"
A dog, a dog, a dog, a dog
"Ain't nothin' but a dog"
A dog, a dog, a dog, a dog
"Ain't nothin' but a dog"
A dog, a dog, a dog, a dog
"Ain't nothin' but a dog"
A dog, a dog, a dog, a dog
"Ain't nothin' but a dog"
A dog, a dog, a dog, a dog
"Ain't nothin' but a dog"
A dog, a dog, a dog, a dog
"Ain't nothin' but a dog"
A dog, a dog, a dog, a dog
"Ain't nothin' but a dog"
A dog, a dog, a dog, a dog
"Ain't nothin' but a dog"

*Fade Out*
