About this Item

WHOLE HOG OR NONE.

WHOLE HOG OR NONE.

No 2. — As sung by Tony Pastor.

Come, give me your attention,
And I'll sing a little ditty
Of many sights that I have seen,
(You must not think me witty)
Of fashions that have met my eye.
'Twill cause a little fun;
I'll show you how the people go
The whole hog or none.

Chorus: Law! bless your soul!
It is the truth I tell you, honey;
The people all act so strangely and so very funny!
Everybody's bound to go the whole hog or none.

Why is it that our Ladies
Are deep in husbands' books,
With silks and satins loaded down,
With such tremendous hoops!
And, if their husbands do complain,
She quick to him will run:
My dear, says she, you know I go
The whole hog or none.

Chorus.

Our Fathers fought for Freedom
Throughout this happy Land;
And we'll protect it with our lives,
United hand in hand.
Let North, South, East, and West
Be Brothers, every one;
And, in our strength, we'll ever go
The whole hog or none.

Chorus.

The Mormons, out in Utah,
They've been kicking up a fuss;
And now they've held their noisy tongues,
It only made it worse.
Old Brigham Young has sixty wives,
While I'm content with one;
I think Old Brigham's trying to go
The whole hog or none.

Chorus.
