Friday Find: "Too Much Pork for Just One Fork" by Southern Culture on the Skids

Southern Culture on the Skids (or “SCOTS” for short) are a band from Chapel Hill, NC who while I was in high school were best known (to me at least) for their live shows where at various points they would pass around a large aluminum pan of banana pudding (during their song “Banana Puddin'”, naturally) and buckets of fried chicken. This song appears on their 1994 album Ditch Diggin’ as well as the 2013 re-recording of the album called Dig This.

Lyrics:
I got too much pork for just one fork
Won’t you pass that apple pie
I got a-too much pork for just one fork
Oh won’t you pass that apple pie

I said hey mister rhythm, mister rhythm is king
He killed the pig with a tambourine
Everybody got happy, everybody got glad
Till the weather turned warm
And that pig went bad

I got too much pork for just one fork
Won’tcha pass that apple pie
I got too much pork for just one fork
Won’tcha pass that apple pie

Now don’t you worry
Everybody here’s gonna get paid
Ah don’t you worry
That’s what the boss man say
I gotta too much pork for just one fork
Too much pork

I said, hey mister rhythm, mister rhythm is king
He killed the pig with a tambourine
Everybody got happy, everybody got glad
Till the weather turned warm
And that pig went bad

I got too much pork for just one fork
Won’tcha pass that apple pie?
I got too much pork for just one fork
Won’tcha pass that apple pie
Hey don’t you worry
Everybody here’s gonna get paid
Yeah don’t you worry
Everybody here’s gonna get laid
I got too much pork for just one fork
Too much ham for just one jam
I got too much sow for just one bow
Hey babe I’m talkin’ pig oh honey can you dig
I got too much, too much, too much, too much
Too much pork
I got too much, too much, too much, too much
Too much pork
