“Cobbler, Cobbler, Mend My Shoe” is a traditional English nursery rhyme that dates back to the 18th century. The rhyme is can be used as a children’s game, where one child is chosen to play the “cobbler” and the others are the “customers.”
“Customers” sing the rhyme to the “cobbler,” and at the end of each verse, the “cobbler” chooses one of the “customers” to be served. That continues until all the “customers” have been served, and the last one chosen becomes the new “cobbler” for the next round.
Lyrics for Cobbler Cobbler Mend My Shoes
Cobbler, cobbler, mend my shoe,
Get it done by half-past two.
Stitch it up and stitch it down,
And I’ll give you half-a-crown.
