A pig figures out the meaning of life and learns an even more valuable lesson along the way.


Trying to move, he was trying to prove
That he knew what he knew, like he was cutting it smooth
But the pigs in a poke just laughed at his joke
That he knew what he knew and the piggy was broke

And that's when he saw this muddied up scrawl:
"Make sense of it and Keep it to Yourself
Make sense of it and you won't bug anyone else"

But the piggy was fine, he had lots of time
And he did what he did 'cos it wasn't a crime

Yeah, piggy had class just letting time pass
And he did what he did, y'all can kiss his ass

Then the words came again - like porcine zen
"Make sense of it and Keep it to Yourself
Make sense of it and you won't bug anyone else"

He opened the door, hoofs to the floor
He thought what he thought, a smug and smirking boar
He just stared at their snouts up in the air
But this little piggy he didn't care

He made sense of it and kept it to himself
He made sense of it so he wouldn't bug anyone else.
