Guns N' Roses - Hair Of The Dog Lyrics


Heart-breaker Soul-shaker
I've been told about you
Steam-roller The midnight shoulder
What they been sayin' must be true
Red hot mama Oh that charmer
Time's come to pay your dues
Now you're messin' with a son of a bitch
Talking 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
There'll be trouble
I say time's gonna pay your dues
