poverty, mortgage, no health care, high car expenses, pigs...I could go on..


The dentist sure made faces
Raise another pig
The poor kid’s gotta have braces
We’ll raise another pig
This shopping bag is lighter than air
I bought the bus or they raised the fare
Great big holes in my underwear
We can almost make it to Wednesday
If we raise another pig

Raise another pig
Raise another pig
We can almost make it to Wednesday
If we raise another pig

The new car’s broke and we’ll give it back
Put the pieces in a sack
One month old and guaranteed
More good parts on a centipede
More damn fun than a pig to feed
We can almost make it to Wednesday….

Went to pay my mortgage
The bank said there’s a shortage
I sold the kids, and I sold the car,
I kept the dog and old guitar
The wife took off but she won’t get far

When it comes to health care
Might as well not be here
The doctor said it’s just your heart
We’ll ‘off’ one pig and get the part
Bring the pig in a shopping cart

J.W. McClure Seattle, Washington

J.W. McClure lives in Stanwood, Washington. This is a career restarted for me. In the 1970’s I was often an opening act at the Washington D.C. clubs, The Cellar Door and The Childe Harold for Tom Paxton, Dave Van Ronk, Tom Rush and many well known bands. In the 1980’s I returned to Washington to do folk music, satire and stand-up comedy before getting swamped by family and other work. ... more
