The Pie Seller

The Pie Seller

A Poem by Debbie Barry

Just a bit of new nursery rhyme. It's intended to reflect life in the 18th Century.


The Pie Seller


Pie seller, pie seller,

What have you that’s sweet?

Pie seller, pie seller,

I want pie to eat.


Pie seller, pie seller,

Sell me a fritter;

Pie seller, pie seller,

Please, sweet, not bitter.


Pie seller, pie seller,

I’ve tuppence ha’p’nny,

Pie seller, pie seller,

How much will that buy?


Pie seller, pie seller,

I’d like sav’ry meat.

Pie seller, pie seller,

A hot pie’s a treat!


Pie seller, pie seller,

Pray, apple and spice;

Pie seller, pie seller,

Your pies taste so nice!
