There was an old man, And he had a calf,
And that's half; He took him out of the stall, And put him on the wall;
And that's all.
Little Johnny Pringle had a little Pig, It was very little, so was not very big, As it was playing beneath the shed, In half a minute poor Piggy was dead. So Johnny Pringle he sat down and cried, And Betty Pringle she laid down and died. There is the history of one, two, and three, Johnny Pringle, Betty Pringlo, and Piggy Wiggie.
