Today, the rhyme is accompanied with elaborate clapping patterns, teaching children hand-eye coordination and rhythm. The rhyme was first published in Thomas D'Ufrey's "The Campaigners" in 1698, which is quite different from the popular version circulated today. The lyrics are as follows: "Ah Doddy blessed at pitty face of myn Sylds, and his pitty, pitty hands, and his pitty, pitty foots, and all his pitty things, and pat a cake, pat a cake Bakers man, so I will master as I can, and prick it, and prick it, and prick it, and prick it, and prick it, and throw't into the Oven."Download a printable coloring page for Pat-a-Cake (just click print):http://mothergooseclub.com/rhymes.php?cat=food&id=138Listen to a narration of Pat-a-Cake:http://mothergooseclub.com/rhymes.php?cat=food&id=138"Pat-a-cake" lyrics:Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker's man.Bake me a cake just as fast as you can.Pat it and roll it and mark it with a "B",And put it in the oven for Baby and me.Additional Versions:Version 1Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker's man.Bake me a cake just as fast as you can.Pat it and roll it and mark it with a "B."And put it in the oven for Baby and me.(Mother Goose Club Version)Version 2Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker's man,Bake me a cake as fast as you can;Pat it and prick it, and mark it with a B,Put it in the oven for baby and me.Source: D'Ufrey, The Campaigners (1698)Version 3Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker's man!Make me a cake as fast as you can:Pat it, and prick it, and mark it with T,And there will be enough for Baby and me.Source: Smith, The Little Mother Goose (1912)Version 4Patty cake, patty cake, baker's man;That I will master, as fast as I can;Prick it and prick it, and mark it with a T,And there will be enough for Jackey and me.Source: Newbery, The Original Mother Goose Melody (1760)
