This old man, he played one (hold up one finger)

He plays nick-nack on my thumb (hold up thumb)

With a nick-nack, paddy-whack (clap hands twice, knees twice)

Give a dog a bone

This old man came rolling home! (roll arms around each other)

This Old Man

This old man, he played two (hold up two fingers)

He plays nick-nack on my shoe (point to shoe)

With a nick-nack, paddy-whack (clap hands twice, knees twice)

Give a dog a bone

This old man came rolling home! (roll arms around each other)

Three - on my knee

Four - on my door

Five - on my side

Six - on some sticks

Seven - up to heaven

Eight - on my gate

Nine - all the time

Ten - over again!
