  • I hung on to Mary's stump
    I danced with a soldier's glee
    With a rum-soaked crook and a big fat laugh
    I spent my last dollar on thee
    I saw Bill Bones, gave him a yell
    Kehoe spiked the nog
    With a chain-link fence and a scrap-iron jaw
    Cookin' up a Filipino Box Spring Hog
    Cookin' up a Filipino Box Spring Hog
    Cookin' up a Filipino Box Spring Hog

    Spider rolled in from Hollister Burn
    On a one-eyed stolen mare
    Donned himself with chicken fat
    Sawin' on a jawbone violin there
    Kathleen was sittin' down in Little Red Recovery Room
    In her criminal underwear bra
    I was naked to the waist with my fierce black hound
    And I'm cookin' up a Filipino Box Spring Hog
    Cookin' up a Filipino Box Spring Hog
    Cookin' up a Filipino Box Spring Hog

    Dig a big pit in a dirt alley road
    Fill it with madrone and bay
    Stinks like hell and the neighbors complain
    Don't give a hoot what they say
    Gotta slap that hog
    Roll em over twice
    Gotta baste him with a sweeping broom
    You gotta swat them flies and chain up the dogs
    Cookin' up a Filipino Box Spring Hog
    Cookin' up a Filipino Box Spring Hog
    Cookin' up a Filipino Box Spring Hog

    Rattlesnake piccata with grapes and figs
    Old brown Betty with a yellow wig
    Tain't the mince meat filagree
    And it ain't the turkey-neck stew
    And it ain't them bruleed okra seeds
    Though she made them especially for you
    Worse won a prize for her bottom black pie
    The beans got thrown to the dogs

    Jaheseus Christ, I can always make room
    Cookin' up a Filipino Box Spring Hog
    Cookin' up a Filipino Box Spring Hog
    Cookin' up a Filipino Box Spring Hog
    Cookin' up a Filipino Box Spring Hog
    (Cookin' up a Filipino Box Spring Hog, cookin' up a Filipino Box Spring Hog) Writer/s: THOMAS ALAN WAITS
