Michael Finnegan is a nursery rhyme about an old man named Michael Finnegan. Its first sung by The Wiggles in TV Series 7. Later in time, they sing it on Apples and Bananas. It was also shown as a sneak peek in the bonus features on the Go Santa Go! DVD and a song on Hot Potatoes! The Best of the Wiggles.

The song's melody is also very similar to The Wheels on the Bus.

The name Finnegan is an Irish surname, as Anthony as Michael Finnegan Irish dances.

Song Lyrics

(Apples and Bananas version)

Emma: There was an old man named Michael Finnegan
He had whiskers on his chin again
Along came the wind and blew them in again
Poor old Michael Finnegan
Begin again!

Simon: There was an old man named Michael Finnegan
He had whiskers on his chin again
Along came the wind and blew them in again
Poor old Michael Finnegan begin again

Lachy: There was an old man named Michael Finnegan
He had whiskers on his chin again. Along came the wind and blew them in again
Poor old Michael Finnegan begin again

Emma, Lachy and Simon: There was an old man named Michael Finnegan
He had whiskers on his chin again
Along came the wind and blew them in again
Poor old Michael Finnegan begin again

All Wiggles: *Breathe In*

Lachy: 1, 2, 3, 4
