There is an entire tradition of songs with double meanings from the jazz age usually songs on the b side of records or only performed live in clubs that were obviously adult oriented. You will sometimes see such songs performed at Renaissance festivals with some Renaissance flourishes added. they jokes are naughty enough to get a chuckle but clean enough they go over the kids heads. At the ren fairs these songs are usually referred to as "Bawdy songs" Bawdy: Adj. dealing with sexual matters in a comical way; humorously indecent.
14 cat lovers?
playgirlc I like cats to but I'd love to play with your poodle
for all you people saying he isn't singing about a dog... umm he does say " > HE"S < the best little poodle i have ever seen" which to me for those of you saying he isn't talking about a dog that then is confusing to me.first off if he was talking about a woman's parts why the hell on earth is he referring to that part as a "HE".what's weirder is...he wants to "play" with a male poodle..Now I am assuming that he wants to through a stick or frisbie and play fetch..that's really not so bad... except if he is actually gay then in this case it could mean he wants to paint the poddle pink and come clean out of the closet...which that IS weird!!But I am now thinking the dirty minded people are thinking maybe he wants to play red rocket with the male dog or something of that nature..Which would be well..... you know...OKYIKES!!!!! ok so there i said it... but now which really is it??????
orangie84 Because you couldn't talk about sex back then. Censorship
Everything he says applies to sex, but then he says it's about her dog. It's clear that it is a suggestive song, but he gets out of it by claiming it's about her poodle.
There, there - you don't need to analyse it.
so here we have early rock-a-billy... country inching toward rock and roll via boogie woogie..notice the electric guitar
Holy shit! Is that a twin guitar lead on here?
fantastic version the guitar work is wonderful
Your poodle is worth more than a penny. I mean your little poodle dog...
Actually Henry D. Haynes (Homer) is on guitar, and Kenneth C. Burns (Jethro) is on mandolin.
Oh My!!! LOL
0:46 .....watch out make some room for that dere geetar
lol, I had a cute little poodle dog, men always wanted to play with it! Miss ya Simmy
Thank you reddit lol
i was on reddit and they directed me to "my girls pussy". highly inappropriate when taken out of context.... i saw this on this one on the side bar, lol just as inappropriate with the same mindset
Actually I am here for the same reason! =DI liked the part about Mainstream Pop, but Chuck Berry is amazing.
This sort of video is the reason why my spouse and I relax and watch TVclip. Usually it takes up most of my day.However a large percentage of families are gradually over time KILLING their dogs (without understanding it)!!! The junk they use in pet food will cause cancer and tends to make dogs pass away early. I figured that out the hard way when my pooch passed away aged 6. To preserve your dog's life look for Double Life Dog Diet (Google it.)
How could I forget Smoky Dacus?
Not precisely true. Lots of bands played live with drums, but they were hard to record because they're so loud they'd cause the recording stylus to bounce. The advent of magnetic tape meant this physical limitation no longer existed, and drums became popular in recording. Bob Wills was performing with drummers in the 1930's. It is true that they were rather less ubiquitous than they are now.
im thinking he is not talking about her dog
You can't hear them because they aren't there. Country music didn't have drums until the 1960s.
This kinda "square" kinda "stiff" Texas swing white man's version of a cool Tampa Red song still has some great guitar playing! Hank Penny was no slouch!...plus, he wrote "Bloodshot Eyes"...a great song recorded by Wynonie Harris!!! Thanks for sharing this recording!
Hank Penny didn't want to record this because it was a dirty song, but agreed on the stipulation that the song be released under the pseudonym "The Freckle Face Boys." It wasn't, and the controversy around this song basically killed Penny's popularity. BTW, his backing band on this song is Homer & Jethro, with Jethro playing lead guitar.
If it was written by Tampa Red it AINT talking about no DOG
"You sure keeps him clean"... thats a plus haha. Great song
Oh my land!!!!
How 'bout Doodle yer Poodle?
@Bags9 Boy, have times changed!
The realy disturbing thing about this song is that he actualy WAS talking about a poodle dog.
Something tells me he's NOT ACTUALLY talking about an actual pup. :: gasps and clutches pearls::......naughty naughty boy you. someone get me my smelling salts I feel faint.....lol
@eoj2495 IF U DON'T, U SLOW!!!!
@msbfd Censorship was TIGHT in those days, people got banned/taken off the airwaves for comments and lyrics that wouldn't even raise an eyebrow today. Adding that clarification after each verse may have been necessary so he could get away with the rest of the lyrics.
Ever hear Marcia Ball's cover?
What a polite man.
Idk why, but old songs are WAYYYY better than the newer ones.
At least he doesn't mention his wiener dog...And what did he think we thought that he has to EXPLAIN "I mean your little poodle dog" after each verse?
great!!! lol! 5*
Hey great! I think we all know what he's talking about...
I don't think he is speaking of THE PET poodle dog.... 8^}
