,

AN old woman was sweeping her house, and she found a little crooked sixpence.

What, said she, shall I do with this little sixpence?

I will go to market, and buy a little pig.

As she was coming home, she came to a stile: but the piggy wouldn't go over the stile.

She went a little further, and she met a dog.

So she said to him: Dog! dog! bite pig; piggy won't go over the stile; and I shan't get home tonight.

But the dog wouldn't.

She went a little further, and she met a stick.

So she said: Stick! stick! beat dog! dog won't bite pig; piggy won't get over the stile; and I shan't get home tonight.

But the stick wouldn't.

She went a little further, and she met a fire.

So she said: Fire! fire! burn stick; stick won't beat dog; dog won't bite pig; piggy won't get over the stile; and I shan't get home tonight.

But the fire wouldn't.

She went a little further, and she met some water.

So she said: Water! water! quench fire; fire won't burn stick; stick won't beat dog; dog won't bite pig; piggy won't get over the stile; and I shan't get home tonight.

But the water wouldn't.

She went a little further, and she met an ox.

So she said: Ox! ox! drink water; water won't quench fire; fire won't burn stick; stick won't beat dog; dog won't bite pig; piggy won't get over the stile; and I shan't get home tonight.

But the ox wouldn't.

She went a little further and she met a butcher.

So she said: Butcher! butcher! kill ox; ox won't drink water; water won't quench fire; fire won't burn stick; stick won't beat dog; dog won't bite pig; piggy won't get over the stile; and I shan't get home tonight.

But the butcher wouldn t.

She went a little further, and she met a rope.

So she said: Rope! rope! hang butcher; butcher won't kill ox; ox won't drink water; water won't quench fire; fire won't burn stick; stick won't beat dog; dog won't bite pig; piggy won t get over the stile; and I shan't get home tonight.

But the rope wouldn't.

She went a little further, and she met a rat.

So she said: Rat! rat! gnaw rope; rope won't hang butcher, butcher won't kill ox; ox won't drink water; water won't quench fire; fire won't burn stick; stick won't beat dog; dog won't bite pig; piggy won't get over the stile; and I shan't get home tonight.

But the rat wouldn't.

She went a little further, and she met a cat.

So she said: Cat! cat! kill rat; rat won t gnaw rope; rope won't hang butcher; butcher won't kill ox; ox won't drink water; water won't quench fire; fire won't burn stick; stick won't beat dog; dog won't bite pig; piggy won't get over the stile; and I shan't get home tonight.

But the cat said to her, If you will go to yonder cow, and fetch me a saucer of milk, I will kill the rat.

So away went the old woman to the cow.

But the the cow said to her: If you will go to yonder haystack, and fetch me a handful of hay, I'll give you the milk.

So away went the old woman to the hay-stack; and she brought the hay to the cow.

As soon as the cow had eaten the hay, she gave the old woman the milk; and away she went with it in a saucer to the cat.

As soon as the cat had lapped up the milk, the cat began to kill the rat; the rat began to gnaw the rope; the rope began to hang the butcher; the butcher began to kill the ox; the ox began to drink the water; the water began to quench the fire; the fire began to burn the stick; the stick began to beat the dog; the dog began to bite the pig; the little pig in a fright jumped over the stile; and so the old woman got home that night.


The End.
