Today is my last day
I'm getting killed tomorrow
My life is full of fear
My heart is full of sorrow
Maybe if I were a human
I could have had a nice life
Could have had
A friend or two
Some children and a wife

But I was born as a pig
And people seem to think I'm dumb
They call me dirty and lazy
But they don't even know me
When people look at me, all they see
Is bacon and bologna
I just want to be free
I just want to be free

Today is my last day
I didn't get to live for long
I suffered in awful ways
But I never did anything wrong
I was the best pig that I could be
I tried to smile and be happy, but
It's hard to smile with a life like mine
I didn't even get to see the sun shine
Tomorrow at this time I'll be dead
A human will cut off my head
No gravestone will bear my name
'Cause I don't even have a name
I'm considered nothing more than a piece of meat
A rack of ribs for a human to eat

Hello, Mr. Slaughterhouse Worker
Why are you shoving me onto this truck?
I thought I wasn't getting killed 'til tomorrow
Gee, I really don't have any luck
Well, it's time to say goodbye
It's time for me to die
I know exactly why:
Somebody wants some bacon to fry
I'm feeling scared and sad
I'm hoping death won't hurt too bad
The stench of blood is in the air
Why don't people care?
What's that thing up against my head?
Is that what's gonna make me dead?
Can't you see that I
Do not want to—
