This Old Man on lastenlaulu, jonka alkuperä on tuntematon. Laulusta on tehty erilaisia versioita ja parodioita. Pete Seeger on levyttänyt sen, kuten myös Bob Dylan, jonka versio on vuonna 1991 julkaistulla Disneyn hyväntekeväisyysalbumilla For Our Children. This Old Man esiintyy useaan otteeseen televisiosarjassa Columbo, jossa komisario Columbo usein viheltelee tai hyräilee laulua.[1]
