Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Up in Harlem every Saturday night
Where the highbrows get together
It's just too right, they all congregate and all night hop
And what they do is ooh boppa dap
Verse 2
Ole Hammer Brown from way across town
Gets full of corn and starts
Bringing them down and at the break of day
You can hear ole Hammer say
Verse 3
Gimme a pigfoot and a bottle of beer
Send me a gate, I don't care
I feel just like I wanna clown
Give the piano player a drink
Verse 4
Because he's bringing me down
He's got rhythm, yeah, when he stomps his feet
He sends me right off to sleep
Check all your razors and all your guns
Verse 5
We're gonna be arrested when the wagon comes
Gimme a pigfoot and a bottle of beer
Send me 'cause I don't care
Verse 6
I want a pigfoot and a bottle of gin
Send me daddy, move right in
I feel just like I wanna shout
Give the piano player a drink
Verse 7
Because he's knocking me out
He's got rhythm when he stomps his feet
He moves me right off to sleep
Check all your razors and your guns
Verse 8
Do the hucklebuckle to the rising sun
Gimme a pigfoot and a bottle of gin
Move me 'cause I'm in my sin
Gimme a pigfoot and a bottle of beer
