I HEARD THE VOICE OF A PORK CHOP
Chicago c. September 1928
Paramount 20866-2-pm 12693
lyrics
I ain't had no use for a chicken
Since way back yonder last spring
For a chicken tried to peck me
'Cause I stepped on his wing
Oh chicken caused me to go to jail
I don't let no chicken do that
I would have stole every hen she had
But I found out they was fat

I was walking down the street today
Just as hungry as I could be
I walked right in a swell cafe
This is what they said to me
Hey won't you have some chicken
Oh no I'll have some beef
Every time a man refuse chicken
Yeah he have to pay before he eat

I heard the voice of a pork chop say
Come unto me and rest
You can talk about liver stew and beans
But I know what's the best
There's pork chops veal chops ham and eggs
Turkey stuffed and dressed
I heard the voice of a pork chop say
Come unto me and rest

Well I walked and I walked and I walked and I walked
'Til I stopped to rest my feet
I lay down beside of a great big tree
And I soon was fast asleep
I dreamed I was sittin' in a swell cafe
Just as hungry as a bear
My stomach sent a telegram to my throat
There's a wreck on the road somewhere

I heard the voice of a pork chop say
Come unto me and rest
You can talk about liver stew and beans
But I know what's the best
There's pork chops veal chops ham and eggs
Turkey stuffed and dressed
Heard the voice of a pork chop say
Come unto me and rest
