Lyrics

Pig on a Hog
by Greg Englesson

I was riding late at night on the subway car
I was no really going to go too far
but I had my foot up on the seat
and the man comes in walking the beat
He knocks my foot down onto the floor
swinging that club like a wild boar
I say hay ho, well don’t ya know
I’ve been working all day got a blister on my toe
Pig on a Hog
blue underground
the law, the law
the transit hound
He didn’t let the kid play the radio
the kid said officer why don’t you let go
he jacked that kid up against the wall
and cracked that stick across his skull
the kid said hey yo well o. k.
I’m just trying to get to work to collect my pay
the cop said now boy you listen to me
I’m keeping things safe for democracy
Pig on a Hog
blue underground
the law, the law
the transit hound
While I was riding those rails I was picking my nose
and this cop began to wail with a rubber hose
well then I woke up was it out of a dream
I was getting a ticket for littering
He asked me for my name and address
I said it’s my nose put me under arrest
he slapped them hand cuffs around my wrists
and called ahead for more cops to assist
Pig on a Hog
blue underground
the law, the law
there transit hound
Like Eleanor Bumpers and Michael Stewart
I’ve got an injustice I must report
the old lady they shot and they strangled Mike
what the hell do we got another third reich?
I mean my membrane I wiped on my own shirt
so the cops can drag my face through the dirt
bounce me up the stairs and into the street
the butchers treat me like a side of beef
Pig on a Hog
blue underground
the law, the law
the transit hound
Well a few months later at a rock and roll club
when the show was over I went and got mugged
I lost all the money that I had
I was running around raged crazed and mad
a cop puled up found I had no I. D.
tried to pick me up for vagrancy
I said you idiot I just got mugged
he jumped off his hog and gave me his club
