Another Nursery Rhyme Question

Tom, Tom the Piper's Son
Stole a pig and away did run
The pig was eat and Tom was beat
And Tom went howling down the street

My son asks "who did he steal the pig from?"
Aiyah son, you're not suppose to analyze these rhymes lah. Suppose to just sing, be happy and unconsciously learn about words that rhyme. But good, good, you ask question. Only thing is mommy don't know the answer.


  1. LOL. I remember asking my mom the very same thing when she taught me that rhyme as a young child. She didn't know the answer either.

Don't go without saying something. I would love to read your comments. BUT no junk comments please.
