Lyrics

Hush up
Don't speak, don't wanna hear another
(Not another word from you)
You're just an ani-
-Mal trying to act real special
(But deep down you are just a shrew)

Maybe I should have a little more just to stay out of my mind
'Cause it's when I'm not thinking with you that I act like a swine

Act like a swine
Act like a swine

I know, I know, I know, I know you want me
You're just a pig inside a human body
Squealer, squealer, squeal out, you're so disgusting
You're just a pig inside

Do ya? I know, I know, I know you want me
You're just a pig inside a human body
Squealer, squealer, squeal out, you're so disgusting
You're just a pig inside

Swine

Be that, hog sweat it you
You squealer
(Let your body jiggle)
Slap her skin-he
Love to watch her ass go wiggle
(It's the feel of ecstasy)

Maybe I should have a little more just to stay out of my mind
'Cause it's when I'm not thinking with you that I act like a swine

Act like a swine
Act like a swine

I know, I know, I know, I know you want me
You're just a pig inside a human body
Squealer, squealer, squeal out, you're so disgusting
You're just a pig inside

Do you, I know, I know, I know you want me
You're just a pig inside a human body
Squealer, squealer, squeal out, you're so disgusting
You're just a pig inside... swine

Paint your face, and
Paint his face and catch the beat
Paint your face, and
Paint her face and catch the beat
Paint your face, and
Be a swine, just catch the beat
Bump the weekend
Catch the beat
Ca-catch the beat
Ca-ca ca-ca-catch the beat
Ca-catch the beat

Swine
