Lyrics for ‘Peter, Peter, Pumpkin Eater’

Peter, Peter, pumpkin eater,
Had a wife and couldn’t keep her;
He put her in a pumpkin shell
& there he kept her very well.

The Little Mother Goose (1912) published this version of the rhyme:

Peter, Peter, pumpkin-eater;
Had a wife, and couldn’t keep her;
He put her in a pumpkin shell,
And there he kept her very well.

Peter, Peter, pumpkin-eater;
Had another and didn’t love her;
Peter learned to read and spell,
And then he loved her very well.
