    The song is about a gold-digging Bitch. Hound dog is the euphemism for bitch. Crying (complaining) all the time. You ain't never caught a rabbit (prize, John, sugar-daddy, sponsor); and you ain't no friend of mine. (I'm not interested)!

    "Hound Dog" is a twelve-bar blues written by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller and originally recorded by Willie Mae "Big Mama" Thornton in 1952. The 1956 version by Elvis Presley is the best-known version; it is his version that is No. 19 on Rolling Stone's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.[3] Other early versions illustrate the differences among blues, country, and rock and roll in the mid-1950s. "Hound Dog" was recorded by five country singers in 1953 alone, and over 26 times through 1964.[4] From the 1970s onward, the song has appeared, or is heard, as a part of the soundtrack in numerous films, most notably in blockbusters such as Grease, Forrest Gump, Lilo & Stitch, A Few Good Men, and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
