"Gimme a Pigfoot (And a Bottle of Beer)" as written by and Wesley A. Wilson....
Up in Harlem on a Saturday night
Where the highbrows get together, it's just too tight
We all gather at the Harlem Strut
And what we do is tut tut tut

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

I wanna pigfoot and a bottle of beer
Send me daddy, 'cause I don't care
I feel just like I wanna clown
Give the piano player a drink
'Cause he brought me down

He's got rhythm when he stomps his feet
He just send me right off to sleep
Check all your razors and check your guns
I'm gonna be arrested when the wagon comes

I wanna pigfoot and a bottle of beer
Send me 'cause I don't care oh no
Send me 'cause I don't care

I wanna pigfoot and a bottle of beer
Send me daddy, 'cause I don't care
I feel just like I wanna clown
Give the piano player a drink
Cause he brought me down

He's got rhythm when he stomps his feet
He just send me right off to sleep
Check all your razors and check your guns
I'm gonna be arrested when the wagon comes

I wanna pigfoot and a bottle of beer
Send me 'cause I don't care oh no
Send me 'cause I don't care

    General CommentA cute song about wanting to let loose. Pigs feet are/was an inexpensive culinary delight especially among many poor blacks. She wants a pig foot; beer; and to let loose, not caring if it might lead to her arrest. She just wants to party w/o a care in the world!
