Piggy Wiggy Wee
Billy Pringle had a little pig,
When it was young it wasn't very big,
When it was old it lived in clover,
now it's dead and that's all over,
Billy Pringle he lay down & died,
Betty Pringle she lay down & cried.
So there was an end of one, two, three;
Billy Pringle he,
Betty Pringle she, and the
piggy wiggy wee.
Some more nursery rhymes to enjoy
Upon A Rock Top
UPON yon nearest rock-top
Can you see a dwelling stands?
Ah, ‘tis the sweetest dwelling
Found in these mountain lands!
It holds the sweetest lady!
She is rich with golden hair,
Has clever, busy fingers,
Though so small and lily fair.
They wash, they starch, they broider,
They can spin, mix oaten cake,
And grind the white wheat finely
The dainty loaves to bake.
And when that sweetest lady
Shall be mine, my own to hold,
Ah, Earth to match her beauty
Will wear a crown of gold!
