So she teases, teaches the old dog new tricks, Kathie Lee & Regis

from Blu – Wind(terlude) Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

You can’t teach an old dog new tricks,” is a popular idiom used in the English language, meaning that you cannot change lifelong tendencies. Obviously there is a contrast between the old dog and the new tricks — they are different, in the same way Kathy Lee was a younger woman and Regis Philbin was an older man.

Kathie Lee and Regis were a duo that did a popular morning talk show from 1988-2000. One could argue the point of the entertaining program was for the two to “tease” each other, and look for hilarity in quirks of the old dog Regis.
