  • In the eyes of Mother Goose, what certain little pigs say all the way home or whenever they cannot find their way home.

    (A song for five toes)

    This little pig went to market;

    This little pig stayed at home;

    This little pig had roast beef;

    And this little pig had none;

    This little pig said, "Wee, wee, wee!

    I can't find my way home."
