Lyrics

One evening last September as far as I remember
I was coming home as drunk as I could be
When suddenly I stumbled and in the muck I tumbled
And down beside a pig I chanced to lay.

Sure not a word was uttered as we lay there in the gutter
Til a woman passing by was heard to say
You can tell a man who boozes by the company he chooses
And the bloody pig got up and walked away.
