Tap the bottom of babies feet, alternating so that a different foot is tapped during each line of the rhyme.

Cobbler, cobbler, mend my shoe

Give it one stich, give it two

Give it three, give it four,

and if it needs it, give it more!

Variation 1:

Cobbler, cobbler, mend my shoe

Have it done by half past two;

Stitch it up, and stitch it down (tickle up and down baby's foot)

Make it the very best in town!

Variation 2:

Cobbler, cobbler, mend my shoe

Get it done by half-past two.

Half-past two is far too late,

Get it done by half-past eight.

Variation 3:

Cobbler, Cobbler, mend my shoe,

Have it done by half past two,

Too ra loo ra loo ra lay.

Sewing up and sewing down,

As I'm going round the town.

Too ra loo ra loo ra lay.

Variation 4:

Cobbler, Cobbler mend my shoe.

Get it done by half past two,

Tour-a lour-a lour-a lu.

Stitch it up and stitch it down,

While I'm going round the town,

Tour-a lour-a lour-a lu.
