Pat a cake, pat-a-cake, baker’s man,
(Clap your hands together to the words, or help your baby clap his)
Bake me a cake as fast as you can.
Pat it and prick it and mark it with a B,
(Pat the palm of your hand, prick your palm with one finger; Trace a B on your baby’s hand or tummy.)
And put it in the oven for Baby and me
(Slide the pretend cake on your hands into a pretend oven)
