Tom, Tom, the Piper’s son,
Stole a pig and away did run.
The pig was eat and Tom was beat
and Tom went howling down the street.
I say that rhyme’s all wrong because that’s really not the way it was.
Tom used to come and play his pipes,
which quite puffed out his cheeks.
No one liked the noise but me,
I loved the squawky squeaks.
I’d dance for him a piggy dance,
or sing a piggy song
And sometimes, just to make him laugh,
I’d make a piggy pong.
The one day I heard the words
that any pig must dread.
BACON, HAM and SAUSAGES!”
was what the farmer said.
Next morning Tom soon understood
he mustn’t hesitate
and so we took off on his bike
to save me from my fate.
