"Hot Dog" as written by and Willie Dixon....
(Oh, hot dog)
Well, I just got into town today
To find my girl who's gone away
She took the Greyhound at the general store
I searched myself I searched the town
When I finally did sit down
I find myself no wiser than before

She said we couldn't do no wrong
No other love could be so strong
She locked up my heart in her bottom drawer
Now she took my heart she took my keys
From in my old blue dungarees
And I'll never go to Texas anymore

Now my baby's gone I don't know what to do
She took my love and walked right out the door
And if I ever find that girl I know one thing for sure
I'm gonna give her something like she never had before

I took her love at seventeen
A little late these days it seems
But they said heaven is well worth waiting for
I took her word I took it all
Beneath the sign that said "you-haul"
She left angels hangin' round for more

Now my baby's gone I don't know what to do
She took my love and walked right out the door
And if I ever find that girl I know one thing for sure
I'm gonna give her something like she never had before

I thought I had it all sewn up
Our love, a plot, a pick-up truck
But folks said she was after something more
I never did quite understand
All that talk about rockin' bands
But they just rolled my doll right out the door
Oh yeah, they just rolled my doll right out the door
But they just rolled my doll right out the door

    General CommentI fail to see how people can dislike this song. I get it stuck in my head almost every day. It's funny, different, and exciting. You can't not like it.

    General CommentListen to the guitar solo before the first chorus and tell me this song is bad. I dare you.

    General CommentPeople always criticize this song for not being a novelty and a knock-off, but just take it as what it is: a fun song with a rollicking beat.

    It's a good song and shows just how talented the band was in that they could successfully explore other genres of music.

    General Commenti try to listen to all music, and this is sort of like a country/hodown and almost like a bluegrass/blues feel but not really. i love this song, i love the intro and the courus, this is the kind of stuff plant loved. zeppelin has a wide veriety of music and this is yet another one of those songs, its great, i love it.

    General Commentthink what you will, but (especially if you're a guitar player) you can't dismiss the amazing guitar, mainly in the solo . . .

    General CommentI laugh when I hear this song. I don't think it was meant to be serious just all in fun. I wish Tom Petty would cover this song because he'd do a great cover, his voice is perfect for it.
