Five Toes

Song Video


This little pig went to market;
This little pig stayed at home;
This little pig had roast beef;
This little pig had none;
This little pig said, "Wee, wee!
I can't find my way home".

This is the man that stole the corn,
This is the man that stood and saw,
This is the man that ran away,
And this is the man that paid for a (insert your own word here).
