"No, no, not by the hair of my chinny chin chin" is a famous phrase from The Three Little Pigs. Does anyone know where this phrase comes from? It seems to mean "absolutely not" but where does it originate?
The Wolf stands at the door of the third little pig's house and says
"Little pig, little pig, let me come in."
The little pig answers, "Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin."
The pig appears to invoke the ancient custom of swearing on the beard of a god, of a revered holy man, or even of the speaker himself. I've found an old traditional English or Scottish song that uses the phrase "I swear by the beard upon my chin":
"[...] O Black Jack Davey came riding by A whistling so merrily He made the woods all around him ring And he charmed the heart of a lady
O come with me my pretty little one O come with me my honey I swear by the beard upon my chin That you'll never want for money"
