I / / / | / / V IThis old man, he played one
This old man, he played two
he played knick knack on my shoe...
three ... on my knee
four ... on my door
five ... on my beehive or sakes alive or that's no jive
six ... on my stick or with those chicks
seven ... up in heaven
eight ... on my gate or far too late
nine ... on my vine or for some wine
ten ... once again
This is a children's song that is good for counting, but I've also
played it at bars with good results. It's a song everyone knows and
drunks love to sing along and you can sing really risque lyrics if you like.
