This has traditionally been used as a jump rope rhyme, so it has a nice sense of steady beat.

Lyrics

Old Man Daisy, he went crazy
Up the ladder, down the ladder
Over my head.

Optional Lyrics

Old Man Daisy, he went crazy
Up the ladder, down the ladder
Zidder (short i), Zider (long i)
Billy goat rider
