Piggies is a song written by George Harrison of The Beatles. It was included on The Beatles album (also known as The White Album). The song Piggies is the only Beatles song, other than the covered swear in Hey Jude, that has a swear word in it, albeit a very mild one. During the bridge George goes "In their eyes there's something lacking, what they need's a damn good whacking."
