Pat‑a‑cake, Baker's Man

Language: English

Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake,
Baker's man,
Bake me a cake
As fast as you can.
Roll it and pat it,
And mark it with a "B",
And put it in the oven
For baby and me.

Sugar and spice,
that's all nice.
Little girls are worth the price.
Frogs and snails,
Puppies' tails,
Little boys make manly males.

Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake,
Baker's man,
Bake me a cake
As fast as you can.
Roll it and pat it,
And mark it with a "B",
And put it in the oven
For baby and me.
Yes, bake me a cake for baby and me.
