The Three Little Pigs        Listen here!

e                                            G
Once upon a time there were three little pigs

                                    D
Who had set out down the road.

e                            G
The first pig built a house out of straw,

                      D
But it wasn’t very strong.

        G                                 C
He said, “That’s okay.  I want to play all day.”

   G                                  D
As he danced and sang this song.

        G                          C
He sang, “Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la”

G                 D
“A-la-la-la-la-la-la.”

                      G                         C
Oh yes, he sang, “Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la”

G                 D
A-la-la-la-la-la-la.”

e                                 G            
The second pig built a house out of sticks,

                      D
But it wasn’t very strong.

        G                                  C
He said, “That’s okay.  I want to play all day.”

    G                                D
As he danced and sang this song.

           G                       C
He sang, “Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la”

G                  D
“A-la-la-la-la-la-la.”

                      G                         C
Oh yes, he sang, “Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la”

G                 D
A-la-la-la-la-la-la.”

e                                     G
The third little pig built a house of brick

                                          D
And he made that house real strong.

G                                              C
He worked and he worked and he worked all day

         G                             D
While his brother’s sang their song.

                        G                        C
They sang to him, “Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la”

G                  D
“A-la-la-la-la-la-la.”

                          G                         C
“Come play with us!  Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la”

G                  D
A-la-la-la-la-la-la.”

e
Little did they know there was a wolf nearby.

                                          G     
He knocked on the door of the house of straw  

                               D
And he said “Pig let me in!”

                G                  C
The pig said, “No no no no no no way

           G                                  D
Not by the hair on my chinny-chin-chin.”

e                                                 G
The wolf said he’d huff and he’d puff and he did

                                 D
And he blew that house away.

  G                              C
The scared pig ran to the house of sticks

              G                  D
So he could play another day.

e                                G
The wolf came to the house of sticks

                                 D
And he said “Pigs let me in!”

                                        C
The pigs cried, “No no no no no no way

          G                                   D
Not by the hair on our chinny-chin-chin.”

e                           G                    
The wolf said he’d huff and he’d puff and he did

                                  D
And he blew that house away.

  G                                C
The scared pigs ran to the house of brick

                G                   D
So they could play another day.


e                                G
The wolf came to the house of brick

      G                         D
And he said “Pigs let me in!”

             G                   C
They cried, “No no no no no no way

           G                                  D
Not by the hair on our chinny-chin-chin.”

e                                                G
The wolf said he’d huff and he’d puff and he did,

                                      D
But that house stayed in its place.

        G                                           C
Well, he huffed and he puffed and he huffed and he puffed

          G                  D
‘til he was purple in the face.


e                                                    G
The third pig’s work had made his house really strong

                                   D
And the wolf could not get in.

G                          C
He finally turned and ran away

                 G                            D
And you could hear the three pigs say,


                          G                        C
Let’s sing and play, “Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la”

G                  D
“A-la-la-la-la-la-la.”

                         G                         C
“We’re safe inside!  Tra-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la”

G          D     G
A-la-la-la-la-la-la.”
