I'm a hawg for you, baby
I'm gonna root all around your door
I'm a dirty hawg for you, baby
And I'm gonna keep on rootin'
All around your door, baby, now now
I'm gonna keep on rootin', baby
Till I can't root no more

I got rockin' pneumonia, asiatic flu
I got something to tell you, baby
I wanna sock it to you
Hawg for you, baby
And I'm gonna rock all around your door
Keep on rootin', rootin'
Rootin', root, baby, yeah
Till I just can't root no more

Hawg for you, baby
Hawg for you, honey

They say I'm a dirty man
But I'm doin'the best I can
They say I don't do none right
But I'm gonna make love all night, huh
I'm a hawg for you, baby
And I'm gonna root all around your door
Keep on rootin', mama
Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord
Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord
Till I just can root no more
Let's take it home, boys, oh yeah
