Andra Day - Gimme a Pigfoot and Bottle of Beer Lyrics


(Music From the Motion Picture)

Up in Harlem every Saturday night
When the highbrows get together, it’s just too right
They all congregate at an all night hop
And what they do is ooh-bop-bee-dop
Old Hannah Brown from way ‘cross town
Gets full of coin and starts breaking ’em down
And at the break of day
You can hear old Hannah say

Give me a pigfoot and a bottle of beer
Send me again, I don’t care
I feel just like I wanna shout
Give the piano player a drink because he’s bringing me down

He’s got rhythm, yeah, when he stomps his feet
He sends me right off to sleep
Check all your razors and your guns
We’re gonna be arrested when the wagon comes

Give me a pigfoot and a bottle of beer
Send me ’cause I don’t care

I want a reefer
And a gang of gin
Send me daddy, move right in
I feel just like I wanna shout
Give the piano player a drink because he’s knocking me out

He’s got rhythm, yeah, when he stomps his feet
He moves me right off to sleep
Check all your razors and your guns
Do the huckabuck until the rising sun

Give me a pigfoot and a bottle of gin
Move me ’cause I’m in my sin
Give me a pigfoot, pigfoot
And a bottle of beer
