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.


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.
