Gimme A Pigfoot Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Up in Harlem on a Saturday night
Were the highbrows get together, it's just to tight
We all gather at the Harlem Strut
And what we do is tut tut tut
Verse 2
Ol' Hannah Brown, from way cross town
Keeps drinking her liquor and she brings them down
Just at the break of day
You could hear old Hannah say
Verse 3
I wanna pigfoot and a bottle of beer
Send me daddy, cos I don't care
I feel just like I wanna clown
Give the piano player a drink
Cause he brought me down
Verse 4
He just send me right off to sleep
Check all your razors and your guns
I'm gonna be arrested when the wagon comes
Verse 5
I wanna pigfoot and a bottle of beer
Send me cos I don't care oh no
Send me cos I don't care
Verse 6
I wanna pigfoot and a bottle of beer
Send me daddy, cos I don't care
I feel just like I wanna clown
Give the piano player a drink
Cause he brought me down
Verse 7
He's got rhythm when he stomps his feet
He moves me right off to sleep
Check all your razors check your guns
I'm gonna be arrested when the wagon comes
Verse 8
I wanna pigfoot and a bottle of beer
Send me cos I don't care oh no
Send me cos I don't care
