Who let the dogs out?
who who who who
Just a childhood song? Or promoting rebellion?
For as long as I can remember, the song "Who Let the Dogs Out?" by Baha Men has been a crucial part of my childhood, but what else did this catchy song truly represent?
My earliest memory would have to be singing this song around the playground with my friends, because we had previously watched Rugrats: in Paris in our class. Now that I think of it, I never truly looked at the verses of the song, I only remember the chorus.
I think its about time I looked at the lyrics.
While searching the internet, I found a few different theories on what the song truly is about:
After much intensive research, I have come up with a few conclusions:
- The song is about ugly women, hence them referring to the as dogs for obvious reason
- The song is about disrespectful men who hit on women at a party
- When a member of Baha Men was asked, he gave the explanation:
"People are just into their dogs"
- The subliminal meaning of this song was not as interesting as I had hoped
- I probably should not have spent so much time researching this subject, but now I know what the song means
- I am still going to continue singing this song like I used to back in elementary school
If you wanna meet up and obnoxiously sing the song together, feel free to shoot me an email. :)
