A traditional nursery rhyme for kids

To market, to market, to buy a fat pig,
Home again, home again, jiggety jig.

To market, to market, to buy a fat hog;
Home again, home again, jiggety jog.

To market, to market to buy a plum bun,
Home again, home again, market is done.

TO MARKET= Going to the market

HOG= A domesticated pig, especially one weighing over 54 kilograms

PLUM BUN= A sweet bun (bread roll) filled with plums (see picture)  (see also picture of plums)

This song is based upon the traditional rural activity of going to a market or fair where agricultural produce would be bought and sold.
