Chairs to Mend

These would have been the cries made by a chair-mender, fishmonger & ragpicker as they plied their trades daily on the streets of Oxford in the 1700s & 1800s.

Lyrics

Chairs to mend, old chairs to mend,
Mackerel, fresh mackerel,
Any old rags, any old rags?

Change lyrics to reflect what people sell nowadays, for instance, imagine what sellers in a mall might be calling as you walk by.

New gym shoes, buy new gym shoes,
Video game, fun video game,
Hot pizza, hot pizza.
