Aiken Drum

This is a popular Scottish folk song and nursery rhyme, which probably has its origins in a Jacobite song about the Battle of Sheriffmuir (1715). (source)

Lyrics

1. There was a man lived in the moon, lived in the moon, lived in the moon.
There was a man lived in the moon And his name was Aiken Drum.

Refrain*
And he played upon a ladle,
A ladle, a ladle,
And he played upon a ladle,
And his name was Aiken Drum.

2. And his hat was made of pizza pie… Refrain
3. And his shirt was made of tuna fish… Refrain
4. And his pants were made of broccoli… Refrain
5. And his shoes were made of whole wheat bread… Refrain

*Another Refrain
And he played a big bass fiddle,
bass fiddle, bass fiddle,
And he played a big bass fiddle,
And his name was Aiken Drum.

  1. Thanks so much for posting this! It’s on one of my daughters’ CDs – I never knew the song as a child – but I love it now. We’ll use this in our “home” music class.
