To buy a fat pig?

To market, to market to buy a fat pig!
Home again! Home again! Jiggety-jig!

A children's toe-counting rhyme: (start with the big toe)
This little piggy went to market -
this little piggy stayed at home -
this little piggy had roast beef -
this little piggy had none -
and this little piggy cried, "Wee! Wee! Wee!" all the way home.

On saying the last line, you run your fingers up to the child's waist to tickle them. Have fun all you grandparents, aunts and uncles! It's good for teaching the past simple regular and irregular verbs!

Not many fat pigs for sale here, and not a little pig in sight. Great market though.
