Hickory Dickory dock,
The MOUSE ran up the clock,
The clock struck one
The MOUSE ran down,
Hickory Dickory dock.

Hickory Dickory dock,
The OX ran up the clock,
The clock struck two
And down he flew,
Hickory Dickory dock.

Hickory Dickory dock,
The TIGER ran up the clock,
The clock struck three
And he did flee,
Hickory Dickory dock.

What animals come next ?
