Tom, Tom The Piper's Son


Tom, Tom the piper's son,
Stole a pig and away did run,
The pig was eat,
Tom was beat,
And Tom went roaring down the street.
 

This rhyme was first published in Scotland in 1795

It has no hidden meaning but rather has a moralistic tone warning children of the consequences of stealing.
