The Pig Must Go Off (A ‘The Show Must Go On’ Parody)

Peppa 1I’m doing song parodies again (sorry about that). I still can’t rhyme (sorry about that).

This time I have chosen one of my favourite Queen songs (sorry about that, Queen). So here is my Peppa Pig parody (not sorry, Peppa) of The Show Must Go On.

(If you want to see the original lyrics of The Show Must Go On, and hear the song, you can find it here.)

The Pig Must Go Off

Annoying piggy, what are they watching for
She’s rather bratty, we know that for sure
On and on, does anybody know what toddlers watch it for
Another creature, another alliterative name
Peppa’s the worst one, but they’re all to blame
Be honest now, does anybody want to slap her in the face
The pig must go off
The pig must go off
The toddler says her heart is breaking
Yes, now she’s started wailing
But that pig cannot stay on

Whatever happens, no more pig today
Another tantrum, resolve starts to sway
On and on, does anybody know what toddlers watch it for
I guess we’re jumping
In muddy puddles now
We’ll soon be soaking
Thanks to that bossy sow
‘More pig,’ the toddler’s calling
But of that bloody pig mummy’s aching to be free
The pig must go off
The pig must go off
The toddler says her heart is breaking
Yes, now she’s started wailing
But that pig cannot stay on

Their eyes are both on the same side of their face
Surely one eye must be completely out of place
Peppa must go, my friends
The pig must go off
The pig must go off
I’ll face the tantrum with a grin
This time Peppa will not win
Off with the show

Daddy Pig, Mummy Pig
Even George is going off
Off with the
Off with the pig
The pig must go off


  1. Fab parody, although that’s another song which will now have alternative lyrics etched in my brain forever lol. Kid’s are now looking at me as though I’m strange as I am giggling, and humming to myself!

  2. Amazing! Seriously though – why do they all have two eyes on the same side of their head? It’s just warped in my opinion.

    Fab song and it is now firmly stuck in my head!

    Dawn x

    Ha ha! This made me laugh this evening. My little one is too young for Peppa just yet but I can imagine I will feel this way in about a year or less! Love your blog BTW. Thanks for sharing. Claire X #KCACOLS

  4. Haha I love it! Peppa remains firmly banned in this house. I’m trying to foster a love of bacon in SB so that she sees Peppa as potential lunch rather than an amusing TV character 😉 #KCACOLS

  5. I think I’m in the minority, but I actually don’t dislike Peppa Pig as much as I do some of the other children’s shows. I’m not even sure she is my least favorite pig. I find Olivia to be a much more annoying show

  6. Kayleigh says:

    I love this so much and completely relate! I keep telling my daughter she’s too old for Peppa now…she’s five, but she doesn’t believe me! I would happily watch My Little Pony over and over but no…sad times! #KCACOLS

  7. wendy says:

    Hahaha. ..this is exactly how I feel! I am forced to watch that stupid pig every morning, I think it’s about time she got turned off. Great parody xx #anythinggoes

  8. Brilliant! Peppa is amusing for only so long. There definitely comes a point when I’d even watch Topsy and Tim instead. And what is it with her eyes?! Bizarre! Thanks so much for linking this with #KCACOLS I really enjoyed it. Hope to see you again next week x

  9. swapna says:

    Haha! My son loves the pig too.. I don’t mind… esp since I make him put on his headphones while I watch some other garbage 😉
    Would love to see your posts in the Practical Mondays Link Up:)

  10. Haha! Great parody. I am very lucky that no one is keen on Peppa here. I say lucky, but then I have had to watch a Korean anthropomorphised bus over and over and over again for the last 5 months straight…. I wonder what song he would fit best into?! #KCACOLS

  11. Leah Miller says:

    This is fantastic! I actually spat out my tea…

    I haven’t had to suffer Peppa Pig yet with baby no.3, I am dreading that day. I had years of it with baby 2!! I think i’ve done my time!!

  12. Babylists says:

    This is so good! Love Queen (loved Peppa Pig and now she drives me insane) but I won’t watch Peppa in the same way again after reading this 👍🏻 #bestandworst

  13. MMT says:

    If I had my way that pesky pig would be slow roasted and pulled apart, served with a pile of apple sauce in a soft white bun.
    Thanks for linking up to #coolmumclub!

  14. Oh yes, the perfect Peppa Pig parody! I can see that you feel exactly the same as we do about that cheeky little piggy in our house 😉 Why the children love her so, I just dont know! Fab parody, thanks for linking it up to #MarvMondays. Emily

  15. lol this is hilarious! I hate to admit that I quite like Peppa Pig (don’t slap me!) I do wonder why both eyes are on the one side of her face though! Thanks so much for linking up with us at #bloggerclubuk
