Song Lyrics

Pop Go The Wiggles!

This old man, he played one

He played nick nack on my drum

With a nick-nack-paddy-wack

Give a dog a bone

This old man came rolling home

This old man, he played two

He played nick nack on my shoe

With a nick-nack-paddy-wack

Give a dog a bone

This old man came rolling home

This old man, he played three

He played nick nack on my knee

With a nick-nack-paddy-wack

Give a dog a bone

This old man came rolling home

This old man, he played four

He played nick nack on my door

With a nick-nack-paddy-wack

Give a dog a bone

This old man came rolling home

This old man, he played five

He played nick nack on my hive

With a nick-nack-paddy-wack

Give a dog a bone

This old man came rolling home

Apples and Bananas and Nursery Rhymes

This old man, he played one

He played nick nack on my drum

With a nick-nack-paddy-wack

Give a dog a bone

This old man came rolling home

This old man, he played two

He played nick nack on my shoe

With a nick-nack-paddy-wack

Give a dog a bone

This old man came rolling home

This old man, he played three

He played nick nack on my knee

With a nick-nack-paddy-wack

Give a dog a bone

This old man came rolling home

This old man, he played four

He played nick nack on my door

With a nick-nack-paddy-wack

Give a dog a bone

This old man came rolling home

This old man, he played five

He played nick nack on my hive

With a nick-nack-paddy-wack

Give a dog a bone

This old man came rolling home

This old man, he played six

He played nick nack on my sticks

With a nick-nack-paddy-wack

Give a dog a bone

This old man came rolling home

This old man, he played seven

He played nick nack up to heaven

With a nick-nack-paddy-wack

Give a dog a bone

This old man came rolling home

This old man, he played eight

He played nick nack on my gate

With a nick-nack-paddy-wack

Give a dog a bone

This old man came rolling home

This old man, he played nine

He played nick nack on my spine

With a nick-nack-paddy-wack

Give a dog a bone

This old man came rolling home

This old man, he played ten

He played nick nack once again

With a nick-nack-paddy-wack

Give a dog a bone

This old man came rolling home
