Junior Mind Your Manners

This song precedes "Yo-Yo" on the "Farm Country" CD.

Junior Mind Your Manners, you're acting like a people again.

Every evening we're hearing your "Gimme more for dinner" blues song,
And you're stretching your stomach, not just eating enough to get along,
But you take more than you can stuff--
That alone is bad enough,
But when other pigs are hungry and you waste a half a pail, something's wrong.

Junior Mind Your Manners, you're acting like a people again.

When you go to the neighbors to help 'em with their rootin', you're blue,
And you ask 'em for raises, more than any decent porker would do.
But you don't mobilize your girth--
You're the laziest on earth.
You get paid more than you're worth,
And you think you've got it coming to you.

Junior Mind Your Manners, you're acting like a people again.

You weren't happy in the city, so you took your paydirt and moved out.
Though they needed you there, you didn't care and you just looked down your snout.
Now you've got mud up to your chin;
You won't let the others in.
You keep "peopling" the puddle and you hardly know what friendship's about.

Junior Mind Your Manners, you're acting like a people again.

You enrich your style of living with no thought about our balance of trade.
You put your profits in your pockets and your industry gets government aid.
And now your head is getting fat--
Borrow cash for this and that,
But the bubble's going flat; pretty soon the piper has to be paid.

People lift your standards, start living for the Savior today.
You're gonna face your Maker someday.
