Jump to: navigation, search


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 stitch, give it two
Give it three, give it four,
and if it needs it, give it more!

Variations

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!

Get it done by half-past two.
Half-past two is far too late,
Get it done by half-past eight.

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.

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.
