The Pig Song is an unreleased song by the Mountain Goats written by John Darnielle to sing for his son, Roman.


Oh, I'm just a pig in the sun
Friend to everyone
When the sun shines high
In the eastern sky
I sing [pig snorting noises]

Pig life is the life for me
Diligent but free
Do my work then rest
Sing a song when pressed
That goes [pig snorting noises]

May we all live long on the Earth
Come to learn what true friendship is worth
Friends since birth
From the depths of our girth
We sing [pig snorting noises]
