Tune: “This Old Man.”


This little scab, s/he plays one;
S/he is scabbing just for fun.

With a knick-knack paddy-whack, throw a scab a stone.
This little scab is going home!

This little scab, s/he plays two;
Is there nothing she won’t do?

With a knick-knack, paddy-whack, throw a scab a stone.
This little scab is going home!

This little scab, she plays three;
Scab on you and scab on me.

With a knick-knack paddy-whack, throw a scab a stone.
This little scab is going home!

This little scab, s/he plays four;
Helps boss keep the workers poor.

With a knick-knack paddy-whack, throw a scab a stone.
This little scab is going home!

This little scab, s/he plays five;
This time, s/he gets out alive.

With a knick-knack paddy-whack, throw a scab a stone.
This little scab is going home!

This little scab, s/he plays six;
Scabbing’s how s/he gets her/his kicks.

With a knick-knack paddy-whack, throw a scab a stone.
This little scab is going home!

This little scab, s/he plays seven;
This little scab won’t go to heav’n.

With a knick-knack paddy-whack, throw a scab a stone.
This little scab is going home!

This little scab, s/he plays eight;
Hurry, scab, or you’ll be late.

With a knick-knack paddy-whack, throw a scab a stone.
This little scab is going home!

This little scab, s/he plays nine;
Walked across our picket line.

With a knick-knack paddy-whack, throw a scab a stone.
This little scab is going home!

This little scab, s/he plays ten;
This little scab won’t scab again.

With a knick-knack paddy-whack, throw a scab a stone.
This little scab is going home!
