Jamie: Hi, everybody. I’m Jamie.

Kelly: And I’m Kelly.

Jamie: And we’re going to start off today by doing "This Old Man." But first we need to make sure that we can count to 10 on our fingers. Do you think we could try that?

Kelly: I think so.

Jamie: All right, so let’s start with one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10 fingers.
Now we’re going to get our music going and then we can do "This Old Man" together, okay?

This old man, he played one/He played knick-knack on my thumb
With a knick-knack paddy-whack/Give a dog a bone/This old man came rolling home.

This old man, he played two/He played knick-knack on my shoe
With a knick-knack paddy-whack/Give a dog a bone/This old man came rolling home.

This old man, he played three/He played knick-knack on my knee
With a knick-knack paddy-whack/Give a dog a bone/This old man came rolling home.

This old man, he played four/He played knick-knack on my door
With a knick-knack paddy-whack/Give a dog a bone/This old man came rolling home

This old man, he played five/He played knick-knack on my hive
With a knick-knack paddy-whack/Give a dog a bone/This old man came rolling home

This old man, he played six/He played knick-knack on my sticks
With a knick-knack paddy-whack/Give a dog a bone/This old man came rolling home

This old man, he played seven/He played knick-knack up to heaven.
With a knick-knack paddy-whack/Give a dog a bone/This old man came rolling home

This old man, he played eight/He played knick-knack on my gate
With a knick-knack paddy-whack/Give a dog a bone/This old man came rolling home

This old man, he played nine/He played knick-knack on my spine
With a knick-knack paddy-whack/Give a dog a bone/This old man came rolling home

This old man, he played ten/He played knick-knack all over again
With a knick-knack paddy-whack/Give a dog a bone/This old man came rolling home
