Children’s Song, UK.

“Hickory, Dickory, Dock” is a nursery rhyme often sung as a counting-out song. The first edition of the “Hickory, Dickory, Dock” was published around 1744 and the next one in 1765. Alternative titles seem to be ‘Hickere, Dickere Dock’ or ‘Dickery, Dickery Dock’. The rhyme is thought to have been based on the astronomical clock at Exeter Cathedral. The clock has a small hole in the door below the face for the resident cat to hunt mice.
