Hog Heaven



Cloud nine in hog heaven is right here today.
Why wait till tomorrow for swag and bouquet?

Cloud nine in hog heaven is right at your feet.
Why wait till tomorrow for dessert and treat?

Cloud nine in hog heaven is right in plain sight.
Why wait till tomorrow for bliss and delight?

Cloud nine in hog heaven is right within reach.
Why wait till tomorrow for ocean and beach?

Cloud nine in hog heaven is right to treasure.
Why wait till tomorrow for fun and pleasure?

Cloud nine in hog heaven is right about face.
Why wait till tomorrow for polish and grace?

Cloud nine in hog heaven is right near at hand
Why wait till tomorrow for say and demand?

Cloud nine in hog heaven is right down-to-earth.
Why wait till tomorrow for rapture and mirth?
