Hickory Dickory Dock ?

“Hickory Dickory dock, the mouse ran up the clock”
Why this rhyme came into existence?
Early clock movements were often made of apple wood, culled from the rich Black Forest region of Western Germany. Those old wooden clocks needed proper lubrication, and most clockmakers used ham or bacon grease. Mice, then, were drawn to the savory wooden gears and plates, which prompted the well known nursery rhyme.
