The chorus for this nursery rhyme is:

With a knick-knack, paddy whack,
Give a dog a bone,
This old man came rolling home.

This old man, he played one,
He played knick-knack
On my thumb.

CHORUS

With a knick-knack, paddy whack,
Give a dog a bone,
This old man came rolling home.

This old man, he played two,
He played knick-knack
On my shoe.

CHORUS

This old man, he played three,
He played knick-knack on my knee.

CHORUS

This old man, he played four,
He played knick-knack on my door.

CHORUS

This old man, he played five,
He played knick-knack on my hive.

CHORUS

This old man, he played six,
He played knick-knack on my sticks.

CHORUS

This old man, he played seven,
He played knick-knack up in heaven.

CHORUS

This old man, he played eight,
He played knick-knack on my gate.

CHORUS

This old man, he played nine,
He played knick-knack on my spine.

CHORUS

This old man, he played ten,
He played knick-knack once again.

CHORUS

With a knick-knack, paddy whack,
Give a dog a bone,
This old man came rolling home.
