    When the party was nice, the party was bumpin'
    Hey, Yippie, Yi, Yo
    And everybody havin' a ball
    Hey, Yippie, Yi, Yo
    I tell the fellas stop the name callin'
    Hey, Yippie, Yi, Yo

    I see ya' little speed boat head up our coast
    She really want to skip town
    Get back ruffy, back scruffy
    Get back you flea infested mongrel

    I'm gonna tell myself I might not get angry
    Hey, Yippie, Yi, Yo
    To hear dem girls calling them canine
    Hey, Yippie, Yi, Yo
    But they say hey man dat is part of the party
    Hey, Yippie, Yi, Yo

    A doggie is nothing if he don't have a bone

    Well if I was a dog
    The party is on
    I got to get my girl I got my mind on
    Do you see the rays coming from my eyes
    Walking through the place like digi-man just breaking it down
    Me and my white socks
    Short and I can't see color
    Any color but you
    I'm figuring that's why they call me pit bull
    'Cause I'm the man of the land when they see me they say oooooh

  • Siahara Shyne Carter from United StatesI heard this many times in Movies too! It is a pride for dogs <3
    RIP for my dogs
    Chucky and Barclay my boys and Wacky thier mom I still remember them xcccc
  • Siahara Shyne Carter from United StatesYeahhhhhh!!!! This is the theme
    song in movies with dogs as The main Actor lmao I love it. I also love dogs than mostly people :}
  • Adam from Cartersville , GaI don't care who let the dogs out I just love seeing all them sexy women working there bodies
  • Tom from Hammond , OnOh my name is Thomas Lovesy. Hammond Ontario Canada. Yes it's my family's song but rewritten... changed.
  • Tom from Hammond , OnThis is the song my family started. I was given no credit for the song.
    the same beat at the beginning. Its about my dogs and who let the dogs out. It was you that let dogs out. It's a family song that was twisted to this, just as I said to Amando, who knew someone that could do something with this... nobody will remember anything but the words who let the dogs out. I was correct.
  • Jas from Clifton, TxThe first 500 times I heard this, it was pretty good. The first 200 times I heard it played at a sporting event, it was still decent. The first 50 times a group of guys claimed that it was obviously about them because they're the wildest people on the planet, it was fine. The 1 time I heard it in The Hangover, it was great. After all of that, it became the single most annoying thing this side of a Macarena/Rickroll sandwich. This song is overused and long past the point where it's still novel. Someone needs to take it out back and shoot it. They shoot lame horses...
  • Daniel Adams from Northumberland, PaThis is a great song that helped kick off the 2000's.
  • Sam from Gardiner, MeThe Baha men are the best for their who let the dogs out song it never gets boring. They are my most favored band. They rock.
  • Ce from Miami, Flrahul, how can you find it irritating!
  • Ce from Miami, FlI think this is a great song, but if you had to listen to this song for a long time it would get on your nerves.
    P.S this is one of my favorite songs!
  • Margie from St. Louis, MoI really liked the song when it came out (I was only in 5th grade, thank god I have better taste in music)Although, I have to say, they're music is upbeat, but I'm thinking about letting their album go. I even have a review on Baha Men at http://rogue-wizard.angelfire.com/blog/
  • Rahul from Chennai, Indiadude... when it was realeased i thought it was good.... but after a few days i felt it irritating... very irritating.. the voice, the chorus.... bwah!!!!
  • Roman from Barrie, Onat the post office the mailmen used to sing along with this tune when it was playing on the radio and then they would hit the street and hope they did not have to run into a dog.....it was like a ritual before a game or contest or challenge
  • Karl from Akron, , Oh I remeber baby sitting my then 4 year old Grand daughter and while she left to go to the "Potty" I'm hearing her sing that silly song while she was doing her thing....... Well I guess that could be concidered a bathroom song for little kids. After all we adults have "Staiway to Heaven" as our "bathroom song" at least that's what a lot of D.J's say
  • Maxwell from Houston, TxI LET THE DOGS OUT!
  • Tyler from Petaluma, Cathe worst song ever written, hands down, it totoally ruined alot of films released in 2001/2 MIB:II, Shrek, ect. People couldn't get enough of it, I swear the next time I hear it on the radio I'm never going to listen to that station agian.
  • Matt from Uniontown , PaYou know, i was always under the impression that this song was about: (close your eyes, little kids) sex from behind. but i guess thats just me.
  • Lynn from Honolulu, HiCall me naive.I stiil say that this song is about dogs.:0)
  • Nathan from Defiance, OhBarbie girl is somewhat pallatible, this is the worst song ever by far. Even worse than Achy-Breaky Heart.
  • Matt from Millbrae, Caok one of the most annoying songs ever. behind such favorites as barbie girl, blue (da ba dee) and other europop b.s.
  • Morgan from Palmer Rapids, CanadaI love this song. It is a major hit!I am using it for a project
  • Keith from Slc, UtThe best use of this song was in "Men In Black 2," as Frank (the dog) is barking to it on the radio.

    The phrase was popular in Southern California as a body-slam put-down back in the 1970s.
  • Dylan from St. Charles, Mohah definently one hit wonder, but i got so annoyed when all the little kids at my school kept screaming this wherever i went
  • Jello from Miamisburg, OhThree words: ONE HIT WONDER
  • Belinda from Miami, FlThis song was actually written by Desmond Child. He came and spoke at my school. He also helped Aerosmith co-write some of their later songs.
  • Andrew from Brooklyn, Nythe song is about horny men. when they say dogs they r referring to men.
  • Nick from Paramus, NjYeah, there are actually words to the song besides "who let the dogs out?" but no one knows what they are.
  • Brian from Vacaville, CaMY GOD. people like the baha men? i just thought they were a crappy one hit wonder. They are for people with no love for real music.
  • Deana from Indianapolis, InMy grandkids loved it in Shrek :-)
  • Setmour from Canberra, Australiawho let the dogs out is like really coooooooooooooooool
  • Simon from Nowheresville, AzImplication of lyrics in the UK, at least in my head, is that a lot of ugly women have suddenly appeared.
