Song Lyrics

1991

Greg: This old man, he played one

He played nick nack on my drum

With a nick-nack-paddy-wack

Give a dog a bone

All: This old man came rolling home

Anthony: This old man, he played two

He played nick nack on my shoe

With a nick-nack-paddy-wack

Give a dog a bone

All: This old man came rolling home

He played nick nack on my knee

With a nick-nack-paddy-wack

Give a dog a bone

All: This old man came rolling home

This old man came rolling home

He played nick nack on the floor

With a nick-nack-paddy-wack

Give a dog a bone

With a nick-nack-paddy-wack

Give a dog a bone

With a nick-nack-paddy-wack

Give a dog a bone

Give a dog a bone

With a nick-nack-paddy-wack

Give a dog a bone

With a nick-nack-paddy-wack

Give a dog a bone
