Words and Music by Roma,

Seated by the fireside, as the shadows fall,
Watching how the light throws figures on the wall,
Mem'ry, ever precious, turns to childhood's days:
To the hour of bed-time, and dear, old mother's lays:
Refrain. (
This little pig went to market, and this little pig stayed at home;
This little piggie had nice roast beef, this little piggie had none;
But the piggies that she told us of, there was one little piggie who roamed;
'Twas the piggie who cried, with tears in his eyes, "My way I cannot find home."

But our childhood passes, years so swiftly fly,
Children grow to manhood, marry bye and bye; I
Club-nights' celebrating, out with pigs full grown;
When it's time to leave them, their way they can't find home.-Ref.

All are like the piggies of the nursery rhyme,
Just a life of roaming-some have roast beef fine;
All must come, at last, to the gates with golden domes,
Hoping there's no piggie but finds his pathway home.-Refrain.
