This little piggy went to the market.
This little piggy stayed home.
This little piggy had roast beef.
This little piggy had none.
This little piggy cried wee, wee all the way home.

Submitter comment: I learned this song from my older brother and sisters. When I was
a baby they played this verse with me to make me laugh and keep me
from crying. As I've gotten older I heard that this verse is to
combat sibling rivalry. It teaches a child that sometimes things
don't seem fair, but that everyone experiences it.
