Keep Your Ham to Yourself
Parody of "Keep Your Hands to Yourself" by The Georgia Satellites
(Leviticus 11; Mark 7:18-20; Colossians 2:16-17; Romans 14:1-6; 1 Corinthians 8:8-13, 10:23-33; Acts 10:9-16, 15:20, 15:28-29; 1 Timothy 4:3-5; Hebrews 13:9)

I got a little pigs in a blanket, gonna bring a ring of links
Of some sausage 'n' tenderloin bacon, green ham and eggs
Or eat some pork chops, how 'bout some plain old ribs
Always, no hoggy, no piggy, you still obey Leviticus
My honey, my baby, don't put my lunch upon no shelf
She said, don't hand me no swine and keep your ham to yourself

Bacon, baby, bacon
Why you wanna eat meat this way
You know you'll kill my supper joy
You know, it's still my supper choice
It's still filled with great taste (I still feel it tastes great)
That's when she told me the pure meats
Are poultry, fish, sheep and cows
And said, no hoggy, no piggy, or food you get from any sow
My honey, my baby, donít put my lunch upon no shelf
She said, donít hand me no swine and keep your ham to yourself

You know I started to feel bad
And I was about to give in
That's when I started thinking about the New Covenant
That part that talks about dinner
I said, Honey, Acts 10:15 would suggest that Iím right
Please check Colossians 2:16, Mark 7:19, donít fight
And what about Romans verse 14:3 if nothing else
She said, don't hand me no swine and keep your ham to yourself

Mark 7:18-19
"Are you so dull?" he asked. "Don't you see that nothing that enters a person from the outside can defile them? For it doesn't go into their heart but into their stomach, and then out of the body." (In saying this, Jesus declared all foods clean.)
