"Nicky Nacky Nocky Noo" is a Wiggles song first heard on Big Red Car.



Hands on my head what is that here?
That is my head thinker my mamma dear
Head-thinker, head-thinker

Nicky nacky nocky noo
That's what they teach me at my pirate school

Hands on my chin what is that here?
That is my chin wagger my mamma dear
Chin-wagger head-thinker

Hands on my waist what is that here?

That is my waist bender my mamma dear
Waist-bender, chin-wagger, head-thinker

Hands on my knees what is that here?
That is my knee lifter my mamma dear
Knee-lifter, waist-bender, chin-wagger, head-thinker


Hands on my toes what is that here?
That is my toe tapper my mamma dear
Toe-tapper, knee-lifter, waist-bender, chin-wagger, head-thinker

  • The 1995 and 2006 versions play in F, the 2011 version plays in G and the 2019 version plays in D.
  • Dominic Lindsay plays the trumpet on one of the keyboards.
  • Due to unknown reasons, the 2006 version of the same song was released twice but with different introduction skits. For example, the introduction for this song in Here Comes The Big Red Car features Jeff in his life jacket whereas in Splish Splash Big Red Boat, the introduction features Captain and his crew.
  • Since 2001, Wiggly Tunes had the publishing rights in the US and in 2006, they got the publishing rights for Australia & New Zealand.
  • This song was nominated for Most Performed Children's Work at the 1995 APRA Awards, losing to Can You (Point Your Fingers And Do The Twist?).
  • The TV Series 1 Collector's Box Set photo gallery shows photos of the song's performance at Wonderland Sydney, although the text says "Go Captain Feathersword, Ahoy!"
