Pig and the Inebriate 3 One evening in October, when I was far from sober To keep my feet from wandering I tried, My poor legs were all a-flutter, so I lay down in the gutter And a pig came up and lay down by my side. We sang,"Never mind the weather just as long as we're together" Till a lady passing by was heard to say, "You can tell a man who boozes by the company he chooses" And the pig got up and slowly walked away. Yes the pig got up and slowly walked away. Slowly walked away, slowly walked away Yes the pig got up and then smiled and winked at me As he slowly walked away. On cattle shows I've centered, in one a pig I entered And one day I sat down with him in his sty Famous people came to visit, when a sweet voice said, "What is it?" She said "What a lofely fella", poked the pig with her umbrella Then she looked at me a while and whispered, "Say Yeah Ay tank dis iss hees brudder"---at my side I felt a shudder And the pig got up and slowly walked away.
