Lyrics:
[spoken] Give me a little bit of volume on this

Heart-breaker, soul-shaker
I've been told about you
Steam-roller, the midnight shoulder
What they been sayin' must be true

[PRECHORUS]
Red hot mama ????? [original was "Oh that charmer"]
Time's come to pay your dues

[CHORUS]
Now you're messin' with a A SON OF A BITCH
Now you're messin' with a son of a bitch
Now you're messin' with a A SON OF A BITCH
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

[PRECHORUS]
[CHORUS]


Quote:
We did ‘Hair Of The Dog’ by Nazareth. It really turned out brilliant, ‘cos Dan McCafferty, their singer, is one of Axl’s idols [Raw Magazine, September 1993].

"Buick Makane", "Hair Of The Dog", and "I Don't Care About You" were my ideas.[Guitar Player, January 1994]

[Hair of the Dog] goes back to Hollywood Rose [Axl and Slash interview, Rockline 1994]

We played it only a few times a very long time ago. When we were in the studio, finishing up the recording of the song, Slash is going: "This is cool!". 'Cause he's the one that brought it to our attention to do it for this album and Duff reminded him… He goes: "Remember the old days? This was cool." Duff reminds him: "You hated this song". Slash goes: "Oh, yeah". Which was very strange when he brought it to us: "We gotta do this song." I was like: "You hated it". I was confused for months [Axl and Slash interview, Rockline 1994].

'Hair Of The Dog' performed with Sebastian Bach and Lars Ulrich, presumably from Rip Magazine Party, USA, November 9, 1990:
