Do you think, brother, that in God's great plan
When He was prescribing the best food for man
That He made a mistake in leaving the swine out?
For he was not good from his tail to his snout!
1 Corinthians 3:17
Oh, the carcass of an old dead horse or a cow
Don't get too rotten for a dirty old sow
Though we holler a lot about boils and the gout
We eat Miss Piggy from her tail to her snout!
We couldn't eat the buzzard, we'd think it a crime
But how much more filthy is he than the swine
That we make into pie, or we cook him with kraut
And eat him or die, from his tail to his snout?
We cook him with cabbage or boil him with greens
With his mangy old hide we season our beans
With his scabs and his boils within and without
Sweet piggy, we eat from his tail to his snout!
On filth they feast, while in stink holes they lay
And still for their carcass our money we pay
The preacher, professor, or the judge on his bench
Eat the carrion-eater, his filth, and his stench
In the filth you can see him clear up to his eyes
His shiny old carcass all covered with flies
Most dead with cholera (due to butcher no doubt)
We still think him good from his tail to his snout!
2 Corinthians 6:17
We eat the old grunter, we eat the young shoat
The fat that we fancied may be pus or bloat
It would smell as good, and as healthy no doubt
As the hooves and the hide, the tail and the snout!
We may like him lean, or may like him best fat
Just as well eat the dog, or else the cat
Just as well eat the buzzard, the owl, or the bat
The lizzard or the snake, the mouse or the rat!
Our most sensitive natures would almost run wild
If we handled the corpse of a man or a child
But we sit at our table and cram down our throat
With the greatest relish -- the corpse of a shoat!
God made him a scavenger, He says he's unclean
What other creature is as filthy and mean?
If we eat his flesh, or touch his dead carcass
With sin and disease it surely will mark us
Tis sad, brother, although God's Word is just
We eat the slop-eater, for eat him we must
The dirtiest of beasts, we will not do without
But eat them we will, from the tail to the snout!
How we sing and we talk of God's love so divine
Like vultures, then feast on the dirty old swine
We might shun many ills, and diseases, no doubt
By not eating him -- from his tail to his snout!
1 Corinthians 10:31
Yes, we worship the Lord, and pray and shout
But that old hog flavor, we can't do without
For ham, bacon, and sausage we'll go the route
And eat the whole hog, from his tail to his snout!
2 Peter 2:22
In God's Word we find, he is classed with the dog
No matter how high bred, he's still just a hog
Though you wash him, or teach if you will
He still will go back to his mire and his swill
We'd be better off if we obeyed God's command
And ate vegetables, grain, and fruit of the land
Then it wouldn't take half of the tonic and pills
To relieve all mankind of their swine-fed ills
You may think of fresh pork as a very rare treat
But our bodies are made of just what we eat
And the food he has eaten, the filth of the land
Goes into our body as food, second hand!
3 John 1:2
No wonder we are weak and heart beats so slow
Sanitariums are full, hospitals overflow
For we eat such unclean, abominable things
That are creeping, crawling, or flying with wings!
God forbade us to eat these dirty old creatures
No matter what is the theory of preachers
If left to mans opinion -- we'd not know the right
But thank the Lord, in His Word there is light!
And now, my brother, you may no doubt recall
Indulgences of appetite caused old Adams fall
Our Savior was tempted on this point, no doubt
So why do we eat from his tail to his snout?
Now I've told you my story, recited my piece
If you can eat pork with your conscience at ease
If sin, filth, or disease, you care little about
Then just keep on eating the brute
FROM HIS TAIL TO HIS SNOUT!
