I know a pig called Henry
He lives in Lancing town
He’s usually got a smile
But occasionally wears a frown
He lives in Jack’s back garden
In a converted garden shed
Nice and cosy, full of straw
And perfect for his bed

He wears a smart red harness
For when Jack takes him for a walk
And people stare and wonder
Mutter things and talk
He’s partial to a beer or two
When Jack’s left some lying round
And in the summer in the sunshine
He will sunbathe on the ground

Henry’s also getting famous
He’s had a starring role
In a music video for a band
Whilst going for a stroll
He is partial to a little snack
So if you visit him
Bring a little something
And you’ll see his piggy grin

    Thank you. Henry is getting really big now; he’s outgrown his harness.
