This little piggie went to market,
This little piggie stayed home,
This little piggie had roast beef,
This little piggie had none,
And this little piggie cried, "Wee! Wee! Wee!"
All the way home.

(Use your finger to wiggle each toe starting with the biggest).

Some additional lyrics sent in from a BusSongs visitor

How I remember dear old Mommie,
Putting me to bed.
She tucked me in and said
To her little sleepy head:.

This little piggie was a bad little piggie
Who cried all the way home.
Years have passed
But it's still my favorite poem.

I hope and pray some day I'll say
To a cute little piggie of my own:
This little piggie went to market
And this little piggie stayed home.

Another fun version

This little piggie
Went to market
This little piggie
Stayed home
This little piggie
Had roast beef
This little piggie
Had none
And this little piggie cried,
"Wee, wee, wee, wee,"
All the way home.
