Rattle rattle rattle rattle,
Rattle my rattle rattle,
Rattle my rattle rattle,
Keep-a my skattle kattle,
Rootle rootle rootle rootle,
Reedle my riddle,
Uptown downtown,
Rattle my ray.

Pull my rattle, shake my rattle,
Bang my rattle, on my head.
Riddle riddle so riddle, jing dingle pumpkin seed,
Rattle my rattle rattle, one two three.
One two three, one two three,
One two, three three three.
A – B, C – D – E,
F – G, H – I – J.

Rattle my rattle rattle,
Rattle my blue rattle,
Rattle my hair rattle,
On my head.
Feel my nails and,
Be my needle bug,
Rattle my teeth settin’
Pretty as you please.
