Roger Miller – Hand For The Hog lyrics

Well they tell me but I can't be sure that a man's best friend is a mangy cur
I kinda favor the hog myself how about a hand for the hog
Ya say a hog ain't nothin' but a porky thing little forked feet with a nosey ring
Pickle them feet folks how about a hand for the hog
If you took a notion I'll bet a good hog would make a hell of a pet
You could teach him to ride and hunt you could clean him up and let him sit up front
A feller and a hog had a comedy act the feller was terrible as a matter of fact
But that hog was a funny sucker how about a hand for the hog
[ fiddle ]
Well I've looked at it and it and it looks like this either you ain't or either you is
A true blue fan of the swine folks how about a hand for the hog
Well I've seen dogs that will howl and bark for no more reason than a moonless dark
And a hog won't rattle your sleep folks how about a hand for the hog
Well if you took a notion I'll bet you could teach a hog to smoke a cigarette
Well it might take a little bit a time but hell what't time to a hog ha ha ha
Well I once saw a hog with a small tattoo it read I reckon I do I do
And he did to right there in front of me how about a hand for the hog
