These Old Men

[Knick Knack Paddy Whack]

Jacques Chirac, he played one,
Grumpy voters spoiled his fun,
With a knick knack paddy whack,
Give the Frog a bone,
This old man came limping home.
Gerhard S, he played two,
April’s Child bids you adieu,
With a knick knack paddy whack,
Give the Kraut a bob,
This old man has lost his job.
Tony Blair, he played three,
Posing now as Mrs. T,
With a knick knack paddy whack,
Give the Brit a spin,
This old man has lost his grin.
Silvio B, he played four,
Wise-guys waiting at the door,
With a knick knack paddy whack,
Give the Don a pail,
This old man is off to jail.
These old men, they played five,
How they love to duck and dive,
With a knick knack paddy whack,
Give ’em all away,
These old dogs have had their day.
