The Three Little Pigs

Part 1 of 2

[1]

Once upon a time there were

three little pigs.

One morning the mother said,

"You must go out

and make your living."

So they all set out.


The first little pig met a man

with some straw.

He said, "Please give me some straw,

I want to build a house."

The man gave the little pig some straw.

Then the little pig made a house.

Soon an old wolf came along.

He knocked at the door and said,

"Little pig, little pig, let me come in."


The little pig said,

"No, no, by the hair

of my chinny, chin, chin.

I won't let you in."


The wolf said,

"Then I'll huff and I'll puff,

and I'll blow your house in."

So he huffed and he puffed,

and he blew the house in.

Then he ate up the little pig.

The second little pig met a man

with some sticks.

He said, "Please give me some sticks,

I want to build a house."

The man gave the little pig some sticks,

and he built a house.


Then the old wolf came along.

He knocked at the door and said,

"Little pig, little pig, let me come in."


The little pig said,

"No, no, by the hair

of my chinny, chin, chin.

I won't let you in."

The wolf said,

"Then I'll huff and I'll puff,

and I'll blow your house in."

So he huffed and he puffed,

and he blew the house in.

Then he ate up the little pig.


The third little pig met a man

with some bricks.

He said, "Please give me some bricks,

I want to build a house."

The man gave the little pig some bricks,

and he built a house.


Then the old wolf came along.

He knocked at the door and said,

"Little pig, little pig, let me come in."

The little pig said,

"No, no, by the hair

of my chinny, chin, chin.

I won't let you in."

"Then I'll huff and I'll puff,

and I'll blow your house in,"

said the wolf.


"You may huff and you may puff,

but you can not blow my house in,"

said the little pig.


The wolf huffed and he puffed,

and he huffed and he puffed.

But he could not blow the house in.
