BIG BAD JOHN
(sample of lyrics)


{Big John, Big John}
Every morning at the mine you could see him arrive
He stood six foot six and weighed two forty five
Kinda broad at the shoulder and narrow at the hip
And everybody knew ya didn't give no lip to Big John.
{Big John, Big John} Big Bad John {Big John}...

A Personal Note: Pigskin saved my Dad's life because he had a severe reaction to artificial skin. Thank you, Mr. Dean.
