Lyrics

Hickory, dickory, dock
(raise your left hand up as if it were a ladder to climb up)
Hickory, dickory, dock
The mouse ran up the clock
(with your right hand simulate the climbing towards the clock)
The mouse ran up the clock
The clock struck one
(tap forward with your both hands)
The clock struck one
The mouse ran down
(with your left hand simulate the descent of the mouse)
The mouse ran down

Hickory, dickory, dock.

Notes

The earliest recorded version of the rhyme is in Tommy Thumb's Pretty Song Book, published in London in about 1744, which uses the opening line: 'Hickere, Dickere Dock'. The next recorded version in Mother Goose's Melody (c. 1765), uses 'Dickery, Dickery Dock'.

The rhyme is thought by some commentators to have originated as a counting-out rhyme.

The rhyme is thought to have been based on the astronomical clock at Exeter Cathedral. The clock has a small hole in the door below the face for the resident cat to hunt mice.
