Zickety, Dickety, Dock is an old Scottish version of Hickory Dickory Dock. It was recited in the 1800's and was a counting out rhyme (for choosing)…
Zickety, dickety, dock,
The mouse ran up the nock*,
The nock struck one,
Down the mouse run,
Zickety, dickety, dock.
Zickety, Dickety, Dock is also spelled Ziccotty, Diccotty, Dock.
*Nock means clock.
We'd love to know if Zickety, Dickety, Dock is still told this way in Scotland. If you recited it this way, please email me to let us know. Thanks! Mama Lisa
