ADAPTATIONS

Little Miss Muffet
Classic Books with Holes Series
Traditional Words and Tune
Illustrated by Barbara Nascimbeni

This one has additional verses. Wonderfully, the Child’s Play version comes with a CD that has three tracks, including an instrumental so you can sing along all by yourself.  The melody is the “English” version, though, so it might sound a little different to you.

LITTLE MISS MUFFET
Traditional Words and Tune
Music by Various Artists

Little Miss Muffet
Sat on a tuffet
Eating her curds and whey

Along came a spider
Who sat down beside her
And frightened Miss Muffet away

I especially love the illustration and adaptation made for the Works Progress Administration in the 1940s, meant to encourage children to read.  I found it in the wiki article for LITTLE MISS MUFFET:

LITTLE MISS MUFFET WPA 1940S

**********************

A fun version of LITTLE MISS MUFFET appears in the hilarious (one of my very favorite illustrated songs), Five Little Gefiltes (by Dave Horowitz):

Five Little Gefiltes
Traditional Tune (Sing to the tune of “Five Little Ducks“)
Words Adapted by Dave Horowitz
Illustrated by Dave Horowitz

LITTLE MISS MUFFET (with Yiddish)
Traditional Tune
Words Adapted by Dave Horowitz
From the book Five Little Gefiltes

Little Miss Muffet
Sat on her tuches
Eating a nice bowl of soup
Along came a spider
Who sat down beside her
And frightened her right off the stoop

PS:  You can sing this with same chords!
