Subject: Help: 'One day I met a wee little pig'
From: Maggie
Date: 04 Dec 99 - 09:24 AM

When I was a child, my mom used to sing me a song that started, "One day I met a wee little pig, with a [snort sound] and a "psst" and a [whistle] and a [gargle], walking along the road. 'Oh where are you going, my wee little pig, with a [snort sound] and a 'psst' and a [whistle] and a [gargle], where are you going?' said I." I believe it was a Woody Guthrie song, although I may be mistaken.

Does anyone have any idea of the name of the song and/or the author and/or the artist? It would mean a lot to me to be able to track it down and pass it down to my own children.

Many thanks in advance!

Can't help, but it's a song from my childhood as well - I still sing it with some regularity. I know the words and the tune, but not the background. I hope somebody else has the details.

Judy --

I'm so glad to find someone else who grew up with this song!

Could you please post the lyrics (or send them to me at mschindel@mindspring.com)? It would be MUCH appreciated.

And if anyone has any information at all about how I could get a recording of it, it would mean a lot to me.

Many thanks in advance!

One day I met a wee little pig
With a [snort] and a [whistle] and a [ptt] and a [gargle]
Walking along the way.

I said, "Where are you going my wee little pig
With a ...
"Where are you going?" said I.

The little pig answered me, clear as a bell.
He said, "[snort] and a [whistle]....
That's what he said to me.

So if you ever meet a wee little pig
Who says, "[snort]....
You'll know what he means, I'm sure.

He means [snort] and a [whistle] and a [ptt] and a [gargle]
That's what he means I'm sure.


Maggie, I'm sure we are not the only ones who know this song, but we may be the only two who admit it.
--Judy (silly-as-they-come)

I've grouped this thread with our threads on "The Old Sow." Not the same song, but it appears the sow and the pig speak the same language. I wonder if there's more to learn about the Wee Little Pig, or Maggie and Judy and Andrea are the World Experts on this song.

Just in case you still wonder, this is sung by Tom Glazer, and you can find the song on Itunes.

My cousin sent me this song through e-mail. If there was a way to attach it to the link I would send it to everyone.

I used to have an old 78 rpm with that song on it when I was about 5. That along with "Goodbye Liza Jane".

Should would like to track down those old vinyls.

I believe it can also be found on Burl Ives' Animal Fair album. I recall it as a child and it seemed to be on a Children's Record Guild album.

Yes, I know that song. It was on an old 78 children's record. But I have no idea who the artist was. I've never found another person
who knew that song.

Then your Moms probably signed you up for the Children's Record Guild where records came in the mail every so often. I still have our collection. That song was on a double album called Folk Songs for Singing and Dancing and the songs were sung by Tom Glazer. Song List was the Swapping Song, Goodbye Liza Jane, What Are You Made Of? Taddle Diddle Dink-Dink, A Capital Ship (for an ocean trip was the Walloping Window Blind), The Little Pig and Jennie Jenkins.
