    "fellas houndin'" means men who are eager to get to know a girl (usually with sexual intent), while "sizin' you up" refers to the way in which such men keenly examine a girl and comment to each other (or to themselves) on how attractive she is, paying particular attention to face, hair, figure, legs etc.
