Sweatin’ Like A Pig, Singin’ Like An Angel

written by vanessa collier

When you’re down in the southland

and kneelin’ in the church pew

You got your fan in your hand, perspiratin’

And you don’t know what to do

Well cry out, Lord have mercy and join in with the choir

The devil won’t be happy that you stoked his fire

 

Oh sweatin’ like a pig, singin’ like an angel

Yes you’re sweatin’ like a pig, singin’ like an angel

If the funk is smellin’ funky, you can be sure it’ll sound real sweet

 

And if the stank get too stanky for ya

And you’re drippin’ sweat out your drawers

Well go ‘head and do your dance ‘til the sun sets

You’ll light up like a lightning bug in a mason jar

When that breeze kicks up, praise hallelujah

I wanna hear ya all the way to Chattanooga

 

Oh sweatin’ like a pig, singin’ like an angel

Yes you’re sweatin’ like a pig and singin’ like an angel

If the funk is smellin’ funky, you can be sure it’ll sound real sweet

 

Oh sweatin’ like a pig, singin’ like an angel

Yes you’re sweatin’ like a pig and singin’ like an angel

If the funk is smellin’ funky, you can be sure it’ll sound real sweet
