Dance to your daddy, sing to your mammy
Dance to your daddy, to your mammy sing
You will have a fishy on a little lishie (dish)
You will have a shilling when the boat comes in.

Information About Dance to Your Daddy

The song "Dance to Your Daddy" is familiarly known as "Diddle, Diddle, Dumpling, My Son John".

The rhyme was first recorded in The Newest Christmas Box published in London around 1797 and may have derived from the traditional street cry of "Diddle, diddle, diddle Dumpling' by the dumpling sellers of the time.

The song comes from the north-east of England.

Love your Daddy? We do too! Clap Hands till Daddy Comes is another great song to enjoy with your father.
