Lyrics
Oh, you can't keep a good dog downOh, you can't keep a good dog down / No, you can't keep a good dog down / I've seen that's pain and hurt right. / I've eaten dirt. / It's hard to buy but even I've been jilted by a skirt. / But look out, Iím still around / Cause you canít keep a good dog down / Ya canít keep a good dog down / No no no no, you canít keep a good dog down / Iíve been bought and sold / Heís been warm and cold / But ten to one Iíll still be runniní rackets when Iím oldHeís been warm and cold / But ten to one Iíll still be runniní rackets when Iím old / Not in some cage in the city pound / Cause you canít keep a good dog / Canít keep a good, I say you canít keep a good dog down / In himís the luck of the Irish / The pride of the German / And even a bit of Siam / Siam? You see the come of the English / The charm of the Spanish / A pedigree a certainly ainít what I amA pedigree a certainly ainít what I am / So call me a mixed up pup / But the only way this pup knows is up / Ya canít keep a good dog down / Ya canít keep a good dog down / Heís been fat and thin / Iíve been out and in / He tried a life of virtue / But prefer a life of sin / So tonight when we own this town / Iíve known hunger, Iíve known thirst / Lived the best and seen the worst / But the only way I know to finish best to finish first / So watch out when you hear this sound / Cause you canít keep a good dog, no ya / Canít keep a good, I say you canít keep a good dog down / You canít keep a good dog down.
