American Ballads and Folk Songs
"My dear little brothers," said one of the brats, "My dear little piggies/5 said he, "Let us all in the future say, <Onk, onk, onk.' It's so childish to say, *Wee wee!'"
Now these little piggies grew skinny and leanj And lean they might very well be, For somehow they couldn't say, "Onk, onk, onk," And they wouldn't say, "Wee wee, wee!"
Now these little piggies they up and died, They died of the Fee-lo-dee-xee From trying too hard to say "Onk, onk, onk!" When they only should say, "Wee wee!"
A moral there is to this little tale,
A moral that's easy to see:
She waddled around saying, "Onk, onk, onk,"
For you only should say, ccWee-wee!"
