Hickory Dickory Dock

Hickory Dickory Dock
The mouse ran up the clock
The clock struck one
The mouse ran down
Hickory Dickory Dock

Other verses:

The clock struck two
The mouse went "boo!"

The clock struck three
The mouse went "weeee!"

The clock struck four
The mouse said "no more!"

Gently walk your fingers up your baby’s arms or legs as the mouse runs up the clock, and back down as the mouse runs down

Toddlers love action songs; they can use one hand as the mouse and walk it up their own arm as the mouse runs up – or give you a tickle!

There are lots of variations on this song – what other actions can you think up for each number? Have fun making up your own version and verses.
