"Tom, Tom the Piper's Son"


Tom, Tom, the piper's son,
Stole a pig, and away did run;
The pig was eat and Tom was beat,
And Tom went crying down the street.

Original Verse

Tom, Tom, the piper's son,
He learned to play when he was young.
But all the tune that he could play
Was "Over the hills and far away."
