I received this email recently:
I’m looking for a children’s ditty and have had no luck so far. I think it may be British, because I got it from my mother, who although American herself, had Scottish parents. Here’s what I know of the song:
Once a lady had a pig, “Honey” said she, “Darling swine will you be mine?”
“Oink” (here the singer snorts, piggy-fashion), said he.
“You shall have a silver sty, Honey” said she, “and a piece of pumpkin pie.”
“Oink” said he.
I’d love the rest of lyrics to this silly song. Pumpkin pie . . .
maybe it’s American. I don’t think Brits have pumpkin pie.
If anyone knows anything about this song, please comment below.
