LyricsEdit

Long ago, there were three pigs,
little handsome piggy-wigs.

For the big, very big, very bad wolf,
they didn't give three figs.

Number one was very gay
and he built his house with hay.

With a hey, hey, toot,
he blew on his flute and he played around all day.

Number two was fond of jigs and so
he built his house with twigs.

Hi-diddle-diddle, he played on his
fiddle and danced with lady pigs.

Number three said, "Nicks on tricks!
I'll build my house with bricks!"

He had no chance to sing and dance
'Cause work and play don't mix

Who's afraid of the big bad wolf?
The big bad wolf, the big bad wolf?

Who's afraid of the big bad wolf?

Tra-la-la-la-la!

[Yeah, B5, the big bad wolf, huh the big bad wolf, yeah c'mon, the big bad wolf, B5, yo yo yo yo]

From the throw there were three little pigs
Little hats and piggy wigs
For the big bad wolf, the very bad big bad wolf
They didn't give three figs
Number One, man he liked to play, so he built his house with hay
With a hey toot toot and he blew on his flute and he played around all day, now let's ride

Who's afraid of the big bad wolf, the big bad wolf, the big bad wolf
Who's afraid of the big bad wolf, we ain't afraid y'all, we ain't afraid, uh
Who's afraid of the big bad wolf, the big bad wolf, the big bad wolf
Who's afraid of the big bad wolf, we ain't afraid y'all, we ain't afraid (who's afraid of him)

Number Two, he was fond of jigs
And so he built his house with twigs
Hey diddle diddle he played on his fiddle and he danced with lady pigs, huh
Number Three said nix on tricks
I'm-a build my house with bricks
He had no chance to sing and dance, cause work and play don't mix, now let's go c'mon

(I ain't afraid) Who's afraid of the big bad wolf, (no) the big bad wolf, the big bad wolf
Who's afraid of the big bad wolf, we ain't afraid y'all, we ain't afraid, uh
Who's afraid of the big bad wolf (wolf), the big bad wolf (wolf), the big bad wolf (wolf)
Who's afraid of the big bad wolf,
We ain't afraid (oh) y'all (oh) we ain't (oh) afraid (oh no)

Came the day when fated frown
And the wolf blew into town
With a gruff puff puff, he puffed just enough, and the hay house fell right down (Blew it down)
One and Two were scared to death, of the big bad wolfy's breath
By the hair of your chinny chin chin I blow you in
And the twig house answered "yes", huh

We ain't afraid of nothin' (We ain't afraid)
We ain't afraid (Oooooooh)
We ain't afraid of nothin'
We ain't afraid (oh, oh, we are not afraid)
We ain't afraid of nothin'
We ain't afraid (ooh)
We ain't afraid of nothin'
We ain't afraid (ooh, ooh)

(Oooooohhh) Who's afraid of the big bad wolf, the big bad wolf, the big bad wolf
Who's afraid of the big bad wolf, we ain't afraid y'all, we ain't afraid (I ain't afraid, I ain't afraid)
Who's afraid of the big bad wolf, the big bad wolf, the big bad wolf (Big bad wolf)
Who's afraid of the big bad wolf, we ain't ant afraid y'all, we ain't afraid (Who's afraid of him)

They were left with Number Three, to save the pigs' family
When they knocked, he fastened unlocked, and he said come here with me (Come here with me)
Now they're all safe inside, and the bricks heard wolfy's cried
So he slid down the chimney, and oh by Jimmy, and the fire, and he was fried, yeah

Who's afraid of the big bad wolf, the big bad wolf, the bg bad wolf (I ain't afraid, I ain't afraid)
Who's afraid of the big bad wolf, we ain't afraid (oh) y'all, we ain't afraid (oh)
Who's afraid of the big bad wolf, the big bad wolf, the big bad wolf
Who's afraid of the big bad wolf, we ain't afraid y'all, we ain't afraid, uh
Who's afraid of the big bad wolf, the big bad wolf, the big bad wolf (we ain't afraid of nothin', we ain't afraid)
Who's afraid of the big bad wolf, we ain't afraid (oh) y'all, we ain't (oh) afraid (we ain't afraid of nothin', we ain't afraid)
(We are not afraid) Who's afraid of the big bad wolf, the big bad wolf, the big bad wolf (We ain't afraid of nothin', we ain't afraid)
(We are not afraid) Who's afraid of the big bad wolf, we ain't afraid y'all, we ain't afraid (who's afraid of him)
