Well, this old man, he played one
He played knick-knack on my thumb
Knick-knack, paddiwack
Give a dog a bone
This old man came a-rollin' home

Well, this old man, he played two
He played knick-knack on my shoe
Well, knick-knack, paddiwack
Give a dog a bone
This old man came a-rollin' home

Well, this old man, he played four
He played knick-knack on my door
Knick-knack, paddiwack
Give a dog a bone
This old man came a-rollin' home

Yeah!

(guitars & instrumental)

Well, this old man, he played five
He played knick-knack on my side
Well, knick-knack, paddiwack
Give a dog a bone
This old man came a-rollin' home

Well, this old man, he played six
He played knick-knack on my stick
Knick-knack, paddiwack
Give a dog a bone
This old man came a-rollin' home

Well, this old man, he played seven
He played knick-knack on my head
Knick-knack, paddiwack
Give a dog a bone
This old man came a-rollin' home

Well, this man, he played eight
He played knick-knack on his gate
Knick-knack, paddiwack
Give a dog a bone
This old man came a-rollin' home

Alright!

(Dano & instrumental)

'Go home old man'

'Rock it, now'

'Rock it now, old man'

'Go 'head.
