FILIPINO BOX SPRING HOG
[Em]I hung on to Mary's stump, I danced with a soldier's g[D]lee
[Em]With a rum soaked crook, And a big fat laugh, I spent my last do[D]llar on thee
I s[Em]aw Bill Bones, I gave him a yell, Kehoe spiked the n[D]og
With a c[Em]hain link fence, And a scrap iron jaw, Co[D]okin up a Filipino [Em]Box
Spring hog
Co[D]okin up a Filipino [Em]Box Spring hog, Co[D]okin up a Filipino [Em]Box Spring hog
S[Em]pider rolled in from Hollister Burn on a one-eyed stolen m[D]are
D[Em]onned himself with chicken fat, Sawin on a jawbone violin th[D]ere
Kath[Em]leen was sittin down in little red recovery room in her criminal
underwear [D]bra, I was n[Em]aked to the waist with my fierce black hound
And I'm co[D]okin up a Filipino [Em]Box Spring Hog
Co[D]okin up a Filipino [Em]Box Spring Hog, Co[D]okin up a Filipino [Em]Box Spring Hog
D[Em]ig a big pit in a dirt alley road fill it with madrone and b[D]ay
St[Em]inks like hell and the neighbors complain, Don't give a hoot what they s[D]ay
Ya gotta slap th[Em]at hog, Roll 'em over twice, Gotta baste it with a sweeping broom [D]
You gotta [Em]swat them flies, And chain up the dogs, Co[D]okin up a Filipino [Em]Box Spring Hog
Co[D]okin up a Filipino [Em]Box Spring Hog, Co[D]okin up a Filipino [Em]Box Spring hog
Ra[Em]ttle snake piccata with grapes and figs, Old brown Betty with a ye[D]llow wig
Ta[Em]in't the mince meat filagree, And it ain't the turkey neck s[D]tew
And it [Em]ain't them bruleed okra seeds, Though she made them especial for y[D]ou
Wor[Em]se won a prize for her bottom black pie the beans got to thrown to the
d[D]ogs
Jah[Em]eseus Christ I can always make room, When they're co[D]okin up a Filipino
[Em]Box Spring Hog
Co[D]okin up a Filipino [Em]Box Spring Hog, Co[D]okin up a Filipino [Em]Box Spring Hog
