Little Betty Winckle had a pig, well is that unusual or not? Hm I wonder what happened to it. xxx

Diddily Dee Dot's Dreamland for Children Everywhere


A Dirge.
As the following little rhyme is called in this book of 1927 called
"A Book of Nonsense and other Absurdities." as collected by Ernest Rhys.

Piggie Wiggie

Little Betty Winckle, she had a pig,
It was a little pig and not very big;
When he was alive he liv'd in clover,
But now he's dead, and that's all over;
Johnny Winkle, he
Sat down and cry'd,
Betty Winkle she
Laid down and dy'd;
So there was an end of one, two, and three,
Johnny Winkle, he,
Betty Winckle, she,
And Piggy Wiggie.

A dirge is a song made for the dead; but whether this was made for Betty Winckle or her pig, it is uncertain;
no notice being taken of it by Camden, or any of the famous antiquarians.
Wall's System of Sense.
