    Lyrics

    Up in Harlem on a Saturday night
    Were the highbrows get together, it's just to 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, cos I don't care
    I feel just like I wanna clown
    Give the piano player a drink
    Cause he brought me down

    He just send me right off to sleep
    Check all your razors and your guns
    I'm gonna be arrested when the wagon comes

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

    I wanna pigfoot and a bottle of beer
    Send me daddy, cos 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 moves me right off to sleep
    Check all your razors check your guns
    I'm gonna be arrested when the wagon comes

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