Lyrics

Gunge: Okay, Philo, now slow down. Look, there's everybody else waiting for us right there on the corner.

Philo: Yeah, it looks like everybody is there, all right.

Gunge: Yep.

Philo: So I'll just stop the bus right here. Hi there, everybody. Get in.

Everyone: Hi!

Gunge: Hi, guys!

Philo: Okay, is everybody in their seats?

Everyone: Yeah, yeah!

Storyteller Fraggle: Okay, everybody. We thought it would be a good idea if we have a sing along as we drive to the farm.

Gillis Fraggle: Good idea.

Convincing John: All right, all right, everyone.
I have a wonderful sing along song.
It's a song that has numbers in it,
and you can help me sing.
And I can count the words to them as we go along.
Is everybody ready?


Gobo Fraggle: Yes!

Pa Gorg: Not me.

Convincing John: I'll sing the first verse
and then everybody joins in on the "nick whack paddywhacks".
All right? Here we go!
This old man, he played one,
He played knick-knack on my thumb
With a knick-knack paddywhack,
Give the dog a bone,
This old man came rolling home.


Gobo Fraggle: I love this.

Convincing John: This old man, he played two,
He played knick-knack on my shoe.
Okay, everybody sing!


Gobo Fraggle: Okay.

Everyone: With a knick-knack paddywhack,
Give the dog a bone,
This old man came rolling home.

Convincing John: This old man, he played three,
He played knick-knack on my knee.


Everyone: With a knick-knack paddywhack,
Give the dog a bone,
This old man came rolling home.

Convincing John: This old man, he played four,
He played knick-knack on my...
Ah, who can guess what he's playing knick-knack on? It rhymes with four.


Gobo Fraggle: A door!

Convincing John: Good!
He played knick-knack on my door.


Everyone: With a knick-knack paddywhack,
Give the dog a bone,
This old man came rolling home.

Convincing John: All right. A little faster now.

Gobo Fraggle: Uh-oh.

Everyone: This old man, he played five,
He played knick-knack on my hive;
With a knick-knack paddywhack,
Give the dog a bone,
This old man came rolling home.

Convincing John: Now even faster.

Gobo Fraggle: Uh-oh.

Wingnut Doozer: Faster?

Everyone: This old man, he played six,
He played knick-knack on my sticks;
With a knick-knack paddywhack,
Give the dog a bone,
This old man came rolling home.

Convincing John: Okay, okay, now slow. Yes.

Everyone: This old man, he played seven,
He played knick-knack up in heaven;
With a knick-knack paddywhack,
Give the dog a bone,
This old man came rolling home.

Convincing John: All right now. Everybody, very, very softly.

Everyone: This old man, he played eight,
He played knick-knack on my gate;
With a knick-knack paddywhack,
Give the dog a bone,
This old man came rolling home.

Convincing John: Now loud!

Everyone: This old man, he played nine,
He played knick-knack on my spine;
With a knick-knack paddywhack,
Give the dog a bone,
This old man came rolling home.

Convincing John: Yes!
This old man, he played ten,
He played knick-knack all over again!


Everyone: With a knick-knack paddywhack,
Give the dog a bone,
This old man came rolling home.

Convincing John: Yes, and then he played knick-knack all over again with all those wonderful numbers. So let's start from the beginning.

Everyone: Oh, no. No. No, Convincing John.

Convincing John: This old man, he played one,
He played knick-knack on my thumb
With a knick-knack paddywhack,
Give the...
Oh, but look! Here we are at the 1 Transylvanian Avenue and Spider Street. I must leave.


Gobo Fraggle: Oh, really?

Convincing John: Oh, thanks for the ride.

Wingnut Doozer: Goodbye, Convincing John!

Convincing John: This old man, he played two,
He played knick-knack on my shoe;
With a knick-knack paddywhack,
Give the dog a bone,
This old man came rolling home.
