Three Dead Piggies

By ManWithHat

Three little piggies came into their own
Three children going forth, each one alone
To this mean old world without a name
But each one the world did not treat the same.

The first little piggy was not loved at all
No cent to her name, she built a straw hovel
And she worked all day, 'til her body felt dead
And, Lord, a shadow fell over her head.

'Cause the wolf, he had followed
Yeah, the wolf quickly followed,
And the big, bad wolf, he swallowed
Her whole.

The second little piggy was dealt a better hand
He bought a wooden house on suburban land
Still, he worked all day, 'til his soul felt cold
And that wooden house started to mold

And the wolf, he had followed,
Yeah, the wolf quickly followed,
And the big, bad wolf, he swallowed
Him whole.

So the third little piggy was given the most
He bought a brick house on the west coast
Didn't have to work, lived at ease,
Lived so comfortable, free from disease

But the third little piggy learned to live in fear
Scared of every shadow that came near.
"Who was that stranger, dressed in black?
I can't see his face, I won't turn my back.
Is he yellow, brown, black or red?
I won't drop my guard, I won't sleep in bed!"
So the third little piggy never closed his eyes.
It's for his soul that the whippoorwill cries.

Then the wolf, he had followed
Yeah, the wolf quickly followed
The big bad wolf swallowed
Him whole.

The end.
