Credits and title card
Stan Freberg: Remember the story of three little pigs
One played a pipe and the other danced gigs
The three little pigs are still around
But they're playing music with a modern sound
Three little pigs were in the groove
Everything was running smooth
The pigs were due for a big surprise
For the wolf appeared with red rimmed eyes
Wolf: Oo you cool, oo you cool, oo you cool man cool!
Freberg: Well to show he was friendly he shook their hand
Announced he was joining up with the band
Instead of starting an argument
A one and a two and away they went
The three little pigs were really gassed
They’d never heard such a corny blast
Pigs: We’ve played in the west. We’ve played in the east. We’ve heard the most, but you’re the least.
Freberg: Well the big bad wolf was really mad
He wanted to play music and he wanted to play bad
Wolf: They stopped me before I could go to town. So I’ll huff and puff and blow their house down.
Freberg: The house of straw was blown away
The pigs had to find another place to play
Dew Drop Inn the house of sticks
Three little pigs were giving out licks
Well the piano playing pig was swinging like a gate
Doing the Libarace on the 88
Pigs: I wish my brother George was here.
Freberg: The three little pigs were having a ball
When the big bad wolf he entered the hall
The big bad wolf he sat right down
C'mon cats we’re going to town
From the crowd came an angry shout
Crowd: Stop the music throw the square out!
Freberg: The Big Bad Wolf was really sore
Wolf: If they’re going to get tough I’ll give them more. They don’t know talent in this here town. I’ll huff and I’ll puff and blow the place down.
Freberg: Dew Drop Inn did drop down
The three little pigs crawled out of the rubble
Pigs: This big bad wolf gives us nothing but trouble. We won’t be bothered by his windy tricks. The next place we play must be made of bricks
Freberg: Sturdy place this house of bricks
Built in 1776
High class place with the high class crowd
Sign on the door no wolves allowed The wolf was sore and fit to be tied
He was sworn and determined to get inside
He huffed and puffed at the house of bricks
But the bricks are stronger than straw or sticks
He huffed and puffed and bleeped and blooped
And at 10:00 was completely pooped
When all of the sudden came a ray of hope
Wolf: I could disguise myself, boy what a dope.
Freberg: Well the big bad wolf took it all in stride
He figured out the way to get inside
Wolf: I’ll show those pigs that I’m not stuck. If I can’t blow it down I’ll blow it up.
Freberg: Well the big bad wolf was really gone
And with him went his corny horn
Went out of this world with out a trace
Didn’t go to heaven it was the other place
Pigs: The big bad wolf he learned the rule. You’ve got to get hot to play real cool
