- A poem by Dennis Lee.
"What is the matter with Dickery Dean? (bounce)
He jumped right in to the washing machine!" (let baby fall between your knees)
Chug, chug, chug, chug,
Chug, chug, chug, chug (agitator motion)
"Nothing's the matter with Dickery Dean (bounce)
He dove in dirty, and he jumped out clean!" (lift baby down and up)
