Hi lisa –
i am looking for the words to a slovak nursery rhyme called “stary baba.” it is basically the slovak version of “this little piggie” but is about an old woman who made porridge and then gave it to her children in a cup, a dish, a ladle, etc.
do you know of this rhyme? any help would be greatly appreciated! my great aunt margaret used to tell it to me when i was a child. now that i just had a daughter of my own named after her, maggie, i would love to keep this tale alive.
If anyone can help Jen with the original rhyme and/or a translation, please let us know in the comments below.
