Pease porridge hot!
Pease porridge cold!
Pease porridge in the pot
Nine days old.

Some like it cold,
I like it in the pot
Nine days old!

Information About Pease Porridge Hot

"Pease Porridge Hot" and some also call it "Pease Pudding Hot" (familiarly also known as "Peas Porridge Hot") is a nursery rhyme and children's game. Pease Porridge refers to a type of porridge made from peas and known as pease pottage or pease pudding.

An early version of Pease Porridge Hot has been found in the form of a riddle in John Newbery's Mother Goose's Melody of 1760.

The rhyme's lyrics originated possibly from the habit of cooking a big pot of porridge which was topped up, as it got lower, for 9 days before it became inedible.

Um... It would've sounded better if they didn't let someone with such a terrible voice sing. And why would you want it nine days old?! Yuck... AND the singer's voice sounds like that muscular man with that british or whatever it is accent, except as a little girl...
