Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf
"Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?" is a song composed by Frank Churchill and Ann Ronell. It made its debut in The Three Little Pigs, a Disney short released in 1933. Although Henry Hall and Victor Young both recorded their own versions of it in the same year, B5 recorded their own hip-hop version in 2006.

The song was reused in the sequels to Three Little Pigs, and its writing was re-enacted in the "Cavalcade of Songs" episode on the Disneyland television series in 1955. It featured in the Sing Along Songs video "I Love to Laugh" and has been included in numerous Disney recordings.

Disneyland Records produced a re-recording of the song in 1958, released concurrently as a single in Disney's "Wonderful Records" series of 45s and on the Mickey Mouse Club LP "Four Disney Stories," conducted by Tutti Camarata. It was a re-enactment of the original cartoon in audio, with noticeable differences being all three pigs voiced by females (unlike the originals, where Practical Pig was voiced by Pinto Colvig), the Big Bad Wolf having a more menacing voice (this time by Sam Edwards), and a few additional verses and dialogue that was not present in the original cartoon. This version was also released on an album in the early 1960s entitled "The Story and Songs of Walt Disney's Three Little Pigs" and a few other compilation albums, and also included on Disney's read-along book-and-audio adaptations of the cartoon.

Lyrics

Original Version

Verse

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.

Chorus
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!

B5 Version

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

[Verse 1 (Kelly)] 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.

[Chorus (B5)] 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).

[Verse 2 (Kelly)] 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

He had no chance to sing and dance, cause work and play don't mix, now let's go c'mon.

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

[Verse 3 (Kelly)] 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

[Bridge (Bryan)] We ain't afraid of nothin' (We ain't afraid)

We ain't afraid (ooh)
We ain't afraid of nothin'
We ain't afraid (ooh, ooh).

[Chorus (B5)] (oooooo) 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).

[Verse 4 (Kelly)] 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.

[Chorus (B5)] 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)
