Song Lyrics

The Wiggles (album)

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

Murray: This old man, he played three

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

Greg: This old man, he played four

He played nick nack on the floor

With a nick-nack-paddy-wack

Give a dog a bone

All: This old man came rolling home

Anthony: This old man, he played five

He played nick nack making a dive

With a nick-nack-paddy-wack

Give a dog a bone

All: This old man came rolling home

Dorothy: This old man, he played six

He played nick nack with some sticks

With a nick-nack-paddy-wack

Give a dog a bone

All: This old man came rolling home

Greg: This old man, he played seven

He played nick nack up in heaven

With a nick-nack-paddy-wack

Give a dog a bone

All: This old man came rolling home

He played nick nack on my plate

With a nick-nack-paddy-wack

Give a dog a bone

All: This old man came rolling home

He played nick nack on my spine

With a nick-nack-paddy-wack

Give a dog a bone

All: This old man came rolling home

He played nick nack once again

With a nick-nack-paddy-wack

Give a dog a bone

All: This old man came rolling home
