this old man
he played one
he played knick knack on my thumb
with a knick knack paddy whack
give your dog a bone
this old man came rolling home

this old man
he played two
he played knick knack on my shoe
with a knick knack paddy whack
give your dog a bone

this old man
he played three
he played knick knack on my knee
with a knick knack
paddy whack
this old man

this old man
he played four
he played knick knack on my door
with a knick knack paddy whack
give your dog a bone
this old man came rolling home

this old man
he played ten
he played knick knack on my shin
on my shin
with a knick knack paddy whack
give your dog a bone
