Hair of the Dog – Ramones

When I woke up this morning from the night before
My brain was pulsating, I was battered and sore
Nothing I tried would satisfy
Cold Coke and Pepsi or Canada Dry

What’s so wrong, hair of the dog
There’s nothing wrong, hair of the dog

Finally pulled myself out of my bed
Feeling kinda dodgy, I was feeling half dead
Done it before, probably do it again
Don’t know if I ever will learn

What’s so wrong, hair of the dog
There’s nothing wrong, hair of the dog

Hair of the dog

Finally pulled myself out of my bed
Feeling kinda dodgy, I was feeling half dead
Done it before, probably do it again
Don’t know if I ever will learn

What’s so wrong, hair of the dog
There’s nothing wrong, hair of the dog

Hair of the Dog – Nazareth

Heartbreaker, soul shaker
I’ve been told about you
Steamroller, the midnight shoulder
What they been sayin’ must be true

Red hot mama, oh that charmer
Time’s come to pay your dues

(chorus)
Now you’re messin’ with a (a son of a bitch)
Now you’re messin’ with a son of a bitch
Now you’re messin’ with a (a son of a bitch)
Now you’re messin’ with a son of a bitch

Talkin’ jive and poison ivy
You ain’t gonna cling to me
Minute taker, fall faker
I ain’t so blind I can’t see

Red hot mama, oh that charmer
Time’s come to pay your dues

(chorus)

(instrumental)

(chorus 4x)

“Hair Of The Dog” does not appear in the lyrics. The logical title would be “Son Of A Bitch,” but it would be tough to get airplay with a song of that name. “Hair Of The Dog” comes from the phrase “Hair of the dog that bit you,” which some people consider a hangover cure, meaning that if you wake up in pain after drinking lots of beer the night before, a beer will help cure you.
