Whose three Hoggs are these, and whose three Hoggs are these?
They are John Cook’s, I know by their looks,
For I found them in my Pease.
Oh Pound them, oh Pound them, but I dare not for my Life,
For if I shou’d Pound John Cook’s Hoggs I should never kiss John Cook’s wife.
But as for John Cook’s Wife, I’ll say no more than mum:
Then, here’s to thee, thou first Hogg, until the Second come.
Of course, many Gloucestershire people consider that the “spots” refer to the Gloucester Old Spot pig.
