The Lyrics

for this swine...the sun shines...most the time
and i'm squealin' and laid back
as i grow...in time, i'll go...and i know i'll be
killed and laid out...time that i've paid back

well, i'm newborn piggy...born to braise
but nowadays...i'm fed and cared for
farms are fine...i love my home
leavin' home...i won't be live no more

i'm ham...i said
they'll shave my hair
and i'll be dead and bald
and left hangin' there
i'm ham, i cried
i'm ham, said i
and life is lost and i
was just bred to die
but i am lovely, still

did you ever read about a dog
who dreamed of seein' hong kong
and then they just ate 'em
well, except for the taste
and the type of the species
if you think about me
its almost verbatim

though, i've got some tastiness deep inside
i'm real scared and i don't wanna go
i'll end up a ham, who is well prepared
but i'd never dare to leave town...and live on my own

i'm ham...i said
they'll shave my hair
and i'll be dead and bald
and left hangin' there
i'm ham, i cried
i'm ham, said i
and life is lost and i
was just bred to die
but i am lovely, still

Such a sad story... but it could be worse: There could be a "Goat Writhin' In the Sty"! Not to mention "Ate 'em/verbatim" was a GREAT rhyme. You've earned the right to ham it up here.
