“Who Let the Dogs Out” is a song performed by the Bahamian group Baha Men. Originally released by Anslem Douglas (titled “Doggie”), it was covered by producer Jonathan King who sang it under the name Fat Jakk and his Pack of Pets. He brought the song to the attention of his friend Steve Greenberg, who then had the Baha Men cover the song. The song, released on 25 July 2000, became the band’s first and only hit in the United Kingdom and the United States, and it gained popularity after appearing in Rugrats in Paris: The Movie and its soundtrack album.

The song peaked at number two on the UK Singles Chart, as well as topping the charts in Australia and New Zealand, and reached the Top 40 in the United States. In Britain it was championed by DJ John Peel and went on to be the fourth biggest-selling single of 2000, and one of the highest-selling singles of the decade not to reach number one. The track went on to win the Grammy for Best Dance Recording on the 2001 Grammy Awards. The song is a part of Bahamian popular culture, and was also the subject of a major lawsuit over copyright ownership that was settled.[2] In 2019, a documentary about the creation of the song was the surprise hit of the SXSW music festival in Austin, Texas.

Lyrics

[Opening]
For one zillion dollas
The question is:
Who let the dogs out?

{alarm rings}

{spoken}
Hey!
Who let the dogs out?!
Who let the dogs out?!

[Hook]
Who let the dogs out?
(Who, who, who, who)
Who let the dogs out?
(Who, who, who, who)
Who let the dogs out?
(Who, who, who, who)
Who let the dogs out?
(Who, who, who, who)

[Verse 1]
Well the party was nice, the party was pumpin’ (Hey, Yippie-Yi-Yo)
And everybody havin’ a ball (Hah, ho, Yippie-Yi-Yo)
Until the fellas started name callin’ (Yippie-Yi-Yo)
And the girls respond to the call
I heard a woman shout out

[Hook]
“Who let the dogs out?”
(Who, who, who, who)
Who let the dogs out?
(Who, who, who, who)
Who let the dogs out?
(Who, who, who, who)
Who let the dogs out?
(Who, who, who, who)

[Bridge]
I see ya’ little speedboat head up our coast
She really want to skip town
Get back gruffy, back scruffy
Get back you flea-infested mongrel!

[Verse 2]
Gonna tell myself, “Hey man no get angry” (Hey, Yippie, Yi, Yo)
To any girls calling them canine, hey! (Yippie, Yi, Yo)
But they tell me “Hey Man, It’s part of the Party!” (Yippie Yi, Yo)
You put a woman in front and her man behind (Yippie, Yi, Yo)
I heard a woman shout out

[Hook]
Who let the dogs out?
(Who, who, who, who)
Who let the dogs out?
(Who, who, who, who)
Who let the dogs out?
(Who, who, who, who)
Who let the dogs out?
(Who, who, who, who)

[Bridge 2]
Say, A doggy is nuttin’ if he don’t have a bone!
(Oh doggy hold ya’ bone, oh doggy hold it)
A doggy is nuttin’ if he don’t have a bone!
(Oh doggy hold ya’ bone, oh doggy hold it)

[Hook]
Who let the dogs out?
(Who, who, who, who)
Who let the dogs out?
(Who, who, who, who)
Who let the dogs out?
(Who, who, who, who)
Who let the dogs out?
(Who, who, who, who)

[Bridge 1]
I see ya’ little speed boat head up our coast
She really want to skip town
Get back gruffy, back scruffy
Get back you flea-infested mongrel!

[Verse 3]
Well if I am a dog, the party is on
I gotta get my groove cause my mind done gone
Do you see the rays comin’ from my eye
Walking through the place
That Diji man is breakin’ it down?
Me and My white short shorts
And I can’t see color, any color will do
I’ll stick on you, that’s why they call me Pitbull
Cause I’m the man of the land
When they see me they say Woo!

[Hook]
Who let the dogs out?
(Who, who, who, who)
Who let the dogs out?
(Who, who, who, who)
Who let the dogs out?
(Who, who, who, who)
Who let the dogs out?
(Who, who, who, who)
