This Old Man
Traditional

Lyrics:

 

This old man, he played one 

He played knick knack on my drum 

With a knick-knack paddywack 

Give a 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 paddywack 

Give a dog a bone. 

This old man came rolling home.

This old man, he played three 

He played knick knack on my knee 

With a knick-knack paddywack 

Give a dog a bone. 

This old man came rolling home.

This old man, he played four 

He played knick knack on my floor 

With a knick-knack paddywack 

Give a dog a bone. 

This old man came rolling home.

This old man, he played five 

He played knick knack on my side 

With a knick-knack paddywack 

Give a dog a bone. 

This old man came rolling home.
