With my nick-nack and click-clack and sing a fine song, And all the fine ladies come dancing along.
This old man, he played five, He played knick-knack on his hive; With a knick-knack paddywhack, Give the dog a bone, This old man came[goes] rolling home.
This old man, he played six, He played knick-knack on his sticks; With a knick-knack paddywhack, Give the dog a bone, This old man came[goes] rolling home.
