Hickory Dickory Dock is a popular nursery Rhyme. The earliest recorded version of the rhyme was published in London around 1744, and began, "Hickere, Dickere Dock". The modern version is as follows:

Hickory, dickory, dock,
The mouse ran up the clock.
The clock struck one,
The mouse ran down,
Hickory, dickory, dock.
