For those (not so) youngsters…



 
…that keep searching my page for lyrics to Peter Combe’s ‘Mr Clickety Cane’, here they are:

When Mr Clicketty Cane, plays a silly game, all the kids in the street, they like to do the same:

Wash your face in orange juice (repeat from crowd)

When Mr Clicketty Cane, plays a silly game, all the kids in the street, they like to do the same:

Wash your face in orange juice, clean your teeth with bubblegum (repeat of each from crowd)

When Mr Clicketty Cane, plays a silly game, all the kids in the street, they like to do the same:

Wash your face in orange juice, clean your teeth with bubblegum, fix the fence with sticky tape (repeat of each from crowd)

When Mr Clicketty Cane, plays a silly game, all the kids in the street, they like to do the same:

Wash your face in orange juice, clean your teeth with bubblegum, fix the fence with sticky tape, brush your hair with a toothbrush (repeat of each from crowd)

When Mr Clicketty Cane, plays a silly game, all the kids in the street, they like to do the same:

Wash your face in orange juice, clean your teeth with bubblegum, fix the fence with sticky tape, brush your hair with a toothbrush, fry an egg on the slippery dip (repeat of each from crowd)

When Mr Clicketty Cane, plays a silly game, all the kids in the street, they like to do the same:

Wash your face in orange juice, clean your teeth with bubblegum, fix the fence with sticky tape, brush your hair with a toothbrush, fry an egg on the slippery dip, belly flop in a pizza!? (repeat of each from crowd, but ‘belly flop in a pizza’ elicits the repeat in a disgusted voice with ‘EWWWW, YUK!’ generally added)

So there you have it. And for the record, I now have the damn song stuck in my head where it will remain for at least a week.

  31. Kerrie

    My son came home from day care singing bits of this song and I remembered I used to sing it :) He was struggling with the lyrics so I thought I would look them up.

    It’s nice to see they are still singing the same kid songs 27 years later!

  32. Mia

    Thank you very much for the lyrics of this popular song. I didn’t grow up in an English speaking country and therefore haven’t been familiar with the tune. Since I started teaching in England and later in New Zealand I’ve come across this song many times but can never remember all of Mr. Clickety Cane’s silly things! Your website provides the friendliest and easiest way to quickly print the lyrics- thank you!

    Oh my god! I’ve been looking for this song for 15 years! My teacher taught it to us in pre-school and I’ve never been able to find it since! I’m now 18 and looking for some good songs to sing to my baby son and Im so glad I found it! Brilliant. I cant wait until He’s old enough to sing it with me… Although Im sure after a while it’ll grate on me until Im kicking myself for teaching Him. Hahaha ah the beauty of parenthood :)
