Cobbler, cobbler mend my shoe,

Have it done by half-past two.

Tu-ra-lu-ra-lu

 

Half-past two is much too late,

Have it down by half-past eight

Tu-ra-lu-ra-lu

 

Pitty, patty, polt,

Shoe a little colt.

Here a nail, there a nail,

Pitty, patty, polt

 

 

Shoe a little horse,

Shoe a little mare,

But let the little colt go

Bare, bare, bare.

 

There’s a cobbler down the street,

Mending shoes for little feet,

With a bang and a bang,

And a bang, bang, bang

With a bang and a bang,

And a bang, bang, bang.

 

Mending shoes the whole day long

Mending shoes to make them strong

With a bang and a bang,

And a bang, bang, bang

With a bang and a bang,

And a bang, bang, bang.

 

Higglety, Piggelty Pop! (clap hands)

The dog has eaten the mop

The pig’s in a hurry, (roll hands)

The cat’s in a flurry,

Higgelty, Piggelty Pop! (clap hands)

 

Patty cake, patty cake, baker’s man

Bake me a cake as fast as you can

Roll, and pat it, and mark it with a “B”

And put it in the oven for baby and me!
