about

My grandfather used to sing this one to me. For ages, I thought he had made it up, but some online research turned it up as something others knew, too.

lyrics

There was an old woman who had a little pig, mmmm-hmmm
There was an old woman who had a little pig, it didn't eat much for it wasn't very big mm-mm-mm

One day that little pig got out, mmmm hmmmm
One day that little pig got out, and it fell down and broke its snout, mmmm hmmm

Then the old woman, she cried and cried, mmmm hmmm
Then the old woman, she cried and cried, and laid herself right down and died, mmmm hmmm.

Then the old man he died of grief, mmmm hmmm
Then the old man he died of grief. Wasn't that a great relief! Mmmm hmmmm.
