Tick Tock the Little Rooster

TICK-TOCK THE LITTLE ROOSTER.

Tick, tack, tock,
What is that dry striking noise?
Rick, rack, rock,
It's a little beak;
Crick, crack, crock,
The shell breaks;

Frick, frack, frock,
It's his spur[1] passing;
Click, clack, clock,
It's the rooster Tick-tock,
Flick, flack, flock,
It's the little rooster.



  1. Ergot (s.m.), spur (of a cock), dew claw (of a dog).
