​I Ain't Nuthin' But A Gorehound

This song is by The Cramps and appears on the live album Smell Of Female (1983).

Well, I don't know about art, but I know what I like
I'll be a-surfin' in a swamp on a Saturday night
Well, I've been to the mountain and it's just a big hill
I guess I'm nothin' but a gorehound, born to thrill
The devil gets dizzy at the stuff I dig
I go crazy, and crazy, till I flip my lid

'Cause
I ain't nothin' but a gorehound
I ain't nothin' but a gorehound
All I ever do is go around
'Cause I ain't nothin' but a gorehound

Well, ain't it nice to be nice when you can't be nice?
Ooh, gee, you're swell as hell, pussycats on ice
Well, the devil with a blue dress, blue dress on
I go crazy and crazy, goin' goin' gone
Well, ashes to ashes and dust to dust
Easy come, easy go, ain't no big fuss

'Cause
I ain't nothin' but a gorehound
I ain't nothin' but a gorehound
All I ever do is go around
'Cause I ain't nothin' but a gorehound

Oh, no, no...

Well, I don't know about art, but I know what I like
I'll be a-surfin' in yer blood on Saturday night
Yeah, the devil with a blue dress, blue dress on
I go crazy and crazy, goin' goin' gone
Yeah, the devil with a blue dress, blue dress on
I go crazy and crazy, goin' goin' gone

'Cause
I ain't nothin' but a gorehound
I ain't nothin' but a gorehound
All I ever do is go around
'Cause I ain't nothin' but a gorehound

I ain't nothin' but a gorehound
I ain't nothin' but a gorehound
I ain't nothin' but a gorehound
