Lyrics

1. Cock-a-doo-dle doo, my dame has lost her shoe,
and master’s lost his fiddling stick and doesn’t know what to do.
And doesn’t know what to do, and doesn’t know what to do.
The master’s lost his fid-dling stick and doesn’t know what to do.

2. Cock-a-doodle-doo! What is my dame to do?
‘Til master finds his fiddling stick She’ll dance without her shoe.
She’ll dance without her shoe, She’ll dance without her shoe,
‘Til master finds his fiddling stick She’ll dance without her shoe.

3. Cock-a-doodle-doo! My dame has found her shoe!
And master found his fiddling stick, Sing cock-a-doodle doo!
Sing cock-a-doodle doo! Sing cock-a-doodle doo!
And master found his fiddling stick, Sing cock-a-doodle doo!

Movement

The children form a circle around a center child and march or skip while singing. Then they stand still while the singer in the center “makes a motion”, as her ingenuity dictates. She may kneel, prance, bow, dance a gig, or otherwide cavort. Sometimes the player chooses the motion and the others must follow her example, must “do it like this”. — Ruth Crawford Seeger, American Folk Songs for Children
