―Toughy


"He's a Tramp" is a song in Disney's 1955 animated feature film, Lady and the Tramp and its 2019 remake of the same name. The song is sung by Peggy Lee in the original film and Janelle Monáe in the 2019 remake. The song was nominated for AFI's 100 years...100 Songs, as one of 15 songs from Disney and one of 17 songs from an animated movie to be nominated.

Lyrics

What a dog (x2)

He's a tramp
But they love him
Breaks a new heart
Ev'ry day
He's a tramp
They adore him
And I only hope
He'll stay that way
He's a tramp
He's a scoundrel
He's a rounder
He's a cad
He's a tramp
But I love him
Yes, even I
Have got it pretty bad

You can never tell
When he'll show up
He gives you
Plenty of trouble
I guess he's just a
No 'count pup
But I wish that he
Were double

He's a tramp
He's a rover
And there's nothing
More to say
If he's a tramp
He's a good one
And I wish that I
Could travel his way

Wish that I could travel his way (x2)

He's a tramp
But we love him
Pulls a new scam ev'ry day
He's a tramp
We adore him
And we know he'll always stay that way
He's a tramp
He's a charmer
He's a sly one
He's a ball
He's a tramp
And we love him
Oh, just don't expect at him at your beck and call

Listen, you can never tell when he'll show up
He gives you plenty of trouble
I guess he's just a
No 'count pup
Who will ditch you on the double

He's a tramp
He's a loner
And there's nothing more to say
If he's a tramp
Then who needs him?
Oh, and we know he'll always stay that way (Listen, darling)

We know he'll always stay that way (2x)
