Nursery rhyme, England.
“This Little Piggy” is a British nursery rhyme and fingerplay. In 1728, the first line of the rhyme appeared in a medley called “The Nurse’s Song”.
The first known full version was recorded in The Famous Tommy Thumb’s Little Story-Book, published in London about 1760. The full rhyme continued to appear, with slight variations, in many late 18th and early 19th century collections. Until the mid-20th century, the lines referred to “little pigs”.
Karaoke Video with Lyrics
This little piggy went to market,
This little piggy stayed home,
This little piggy had roast beef
This little piggy had none,
And this little piggy cried wee wee wee all the way home.
