Section 1:
Here's an old favorite of ours
Somethin' we used to do when we were cleaning out the Hogs pen, heh heh heh
Cause y'know, one thing I learned by... growing up'n...
it's American values up on the farm
And that is that, Pigs are people too.
You're sizzlin' up a... thrasher a bacon
Y'be... broilin' a... pork roast... er
Havin' a couple a chops
You take it from 'ol Choptop here... and his pal Bucky
You just remember
Pig... is the most intelligent mammal... next ta man
And they know what's up...

When the farmer comes... with that long sharp knife
And he bends down'n... takes that pig by the shoulder
That look in his eye...

The other pigs get to the... far end of the pen
Their eyes all... small 'n scared

They know why they been prepared
Cause pigs are people too

Section 4:
Yea, y'know... now we've... moved into the city
Now we're just tryin' to get by'n... in our own humble way
heh heh heh heh heh
I work down at Farmer John's
It's a... slaughter plant... down in a... Century City
Part of the Hook 'n Pull Gang down there
What we do is, a... hoist those pigs up by their hind legs
Chain 'em up on the big A-frame
Runs through the factory like a... well almost like makin' cars
And there's the killer... he's got a real sharp knife'n
The next... each pig comes by... he just... slices it's throat
And that A-frame keeps movin'
Goes outside up a hill... we call it Death Hill
At the top of Death Hill... is a... big wall of flame
An' as the pigs dyin'... blood's pourin' out of it's throat
He goes up there t'get scorched... 'cuz that uh... makes a better bacon
An' sometimes the pig ain't dead by the time it gets up to that wall of flame
And what ya hear is somethin'... that's damn near human
Reee Reee Reee
Reee Reee Reee
Reee Reee Reee
Makes me kinda sad

Section 8:
Y'know we were down at the Combine races
Out there by 'old French Farm
And me 'n Bubba my little brother
Well we was drivin' this Combine
On old uh, Route Double-I
Looked in the rear-view mirror 'n... there was this red flashin' light
Man, how many times that happen to you boys 'n girls?
Y'know... kinda pull over
Aw Christ, hey Bubba you got the... registration in there?
Aw shit, some mouse ate it... it's just a nest... in that glove box
And... just waitin' n'ya look out the window and here comes... "da man"
And ya look down
Kinda didn't look like a... I didn't know what it looked like
I mean it had a hat, and a badge, and dark glasses, and jack boots, and... gun drawn
I looked down and... the nose was awful funny lookin', kinda flat and round.
Those eyes were little, tiny eyes, little beady eyes
These big jowly cheeks, these floppy ears comin' out from under that Mounty hat
I looked down and I said, "By God".
I said "Bubba you take a look at this".
He leaned over, y'know
He's no sight for... sore eyes neither but he looked over
"By Golly... that was a pig! That wasn't no... that wasn't no man!
That was a pig!"
