Hickory dickory dock, hickory dickory dock
I wanna turn back, I wanna turn back
I wanna turn back the clock

I wanna live last night again
Hold my baby tight again
Hickory dickory, dickory dock

Hickory dickory dock, hickory dickory dock
I'm doin' a flip, such a big flip
Flippin' all around the block

Last night at a quarter to nine
Lover man said he'd be mine
Hickory dickory, dickory dock

He came a callin'
We went ballin'
Last night around a quarter to eight

We went to see a show
Don't know what I saw
But the kissin' was great

Hickory dickory dock, hickory dickory dock
Look at me shake, look at me quake
Look at my poor heart rock

And I've got news for you
Oh, we're gonna say, "I do"
Hickory dickory, dickory dock

He came a callin'
We went ballin'
Last night around a quarter to eight

We went to see a show
Don't know what I saw
But the kissin' was great

Hickory dickory dock, hickory dickory dock
Look at me shake, look at me quake
Look at my poor heart rock

And I've got news for you
Oh, we're gonna say, "I do"
Hickory dickory, dickory dock

Hickory dickory, dickory dock
Hickory dickory, dickory dock
Hickory dickory, dickory dock
