They all must live together
I’ve been thinking of those piggies
You know the ones I mean
The ones we hide from others
No longer to be seen

They once were bare and shoeless
We waved them in the air
When we were little infants
Without the slightest care

But now that we are older
Those piggies don’t come out
When did you last expose them
And wave them all about?

Those piggies have grown bigger
Not little any more
I guess it was that roast beef
They brought home from the store

But still I have to wonder
About the smallest one
What caused him to go crying?
That couldn’t have been fun

All siblings have their problems
Of that there is no doubt
I’d like to know his story
And if they worked it out

They all must live together
As everybody knows
What kind of foot would that be
Without all of those toes?

So maybe he was hurting
You know how toes can be
It happens when you stub one
It’s easy as can be

I hope that he is fine now
And all the others too
‘Cause they must live together
All stuffed inside my shoe
