The “B” for “Baby” in this popular nursery rhyme is often replaced by “T” for “Teddy,” “D” for “Donny,” or other favorite name and initial. I have also heard it pronounced “patty-cake” as often as “pat-a-cake,” especially in the South and in Texas where I grew up.

Here’s the basic version as I learned it:

Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake
      baker’s man
Bake me a cake
      as fast as you can
Prick it and pat it
      and mark it with a B
And put it in the oven
      for Baby and me
