New South - Hogs

some little kids like ponies
some little kids like dogs
mister threadgill's daughter
likes a two thousand c.c. hog
she loves that motorcycle
she loves the sound
she was sat in the saddle long before
her feet could reach the ground

mister threadgill and his daughter
they ride with the local m.c.
he tells them boys "you mess with her
you're gonna answer to me"
but they ain't never no trouble
they all understand
that mister threadgill's daughter was born
with a crescent wrench in her hand

an american made motor
is another living thing
she got that bike running smooth as her grandmother's
singer sewing machine

mister threadgill's daughter
she sells auto parts
for aluminum engines
motorized shopping carts
she don't like her job much
that's why she's gonna leave
going back to working on hogs
'cause they live and breathe

mister threadgill's daughter
is in love with a girl called beatrice
an undergraduate cocktail waitress
sometimes they get to fighting
and they fight like cat and dog
that's when mister threadgill's daughter
goes to work on her hog

an American made motor
is another living thing
she got that bike running smooth as her grandmother's
singer sewing machine
