Lyrics
Just look a-here, mama, don't treat pigmeat the way you do
Ooh, don't treat pigmeat the way you do
Your baby's pigmeat as anybody in the neighborhood

If you don't believe it's pigmeat come in and you won't regret
Ooh, come in and you won't regret
I got something about this pigmeat, sweet mama, I ain't told you yet

I was born and raised in the country, mama, but I'm staying in town
Spoken: In New York City, what I'm talking about
I was born and raised in the country, mama, but I'm staying in town
If you don't believe this pigmeat, mama, from my head on down

Spoken: She looked at the man
and I looked at the woman
she knowed this was Leadbetter
wasn't nothing but pure pigmeat
All over Shrevesport Louisiana and all in Texarkana
And I was running with a gal named Sylvanna
She looked at me, and here's what she said, the last words

You can take me to the mountain, there will be pigmeat there
You can take me to the mountain, mama, will be pigmeat there
You take a boat to China, *they'll catch us* anywhere

Ooh, and catch us anywhere
Ooh, and catch us anywhere
Take a boat to China, then it's catch us anywhere
