"Diddle, diddle, dumpling, my son John..."
by Mother Goose

Diddle, diddle, dumpling, my son John
Went to bed with his stockings on;
One shoe off, and one shoe on,
Diddle, diddle, dumpling, my son John.

 

Alternate version:

Diddle, diddle, dumpling, my son John,
Went to bed with his stockings on;
One shoe off, the other shoe on,
Diddle, diddle, dumpling, my son John.
